Multilayer foodservice jar helps extend shelf life

15 March 2013

RPC Containers Corby has launched a new multilayer foodservice jar, which it says combines an extended ambient shelf life with improved safety in the kitchen environment, as well as enhanced transport efficiencies.

The new 4kg Bear jar features a multilayer PP/EVOH/PP structure and can be hot filled, pasteurised and sterilised at temperatures up to 121°C. The EVOH barrier layer prevents oxygen ingress to deliver a long shelf life for oxygen sensitive foods.

The jar is breakage resistant in line with HACCP recommendations. In a bid to avoid spillages and reduce food waste, it is fully reclosable and can be stored in the refrigerator after opening. The wide opening is said to allow easy pouring and spooning and the closure can also include a pump dispenser.

The jar’s design incorporates an integral handle for easy handling and pouring. There is a wide surface area for decoration to create effective branding for individual products.

According to RPC, the internal profile of the jar facilitates rapid filling and overall the company says the pack provides ‘excellent transport and storage bulk density to help reduce supply chain costs’.
