Staying fresher for longer

05 September 2014

RPC Superfos’s award-winning SuperLock® barrier packaging solution is now 
available from RPC Containers Blackburn.

SuperLock® containers combine an oxygen barrier on all surfaces with a membrane seal to ensure an almost non-existent oxygen transmission rate. This provides an ambient shelf life of up to 24 months for a wide range of products including ready meals, sauces, soups, fruit desserts, nuts, vegetable spreads, dairy products and pickles.

For manufacturers, the packs are suitable for both hot and cold filling, can be retorted for product pasteurisation or sterilisation, are stackable for efficient storage and offer low noise on the filling line. They are also lightweight, low carbon and fully recyclable, delivering important sustainability advantages.

Consumer benefits include easy and safe handling, re-closability, and microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe. 

The innovative in-mould label which incorporates the barrier also offers high quality printing to create outstanding and eye-catching graphics that deliver effective brand identity and on-shelf appeal on crowded retail shelves. As well as a choice of sizes, bespoke designs can be created to meet specific customer requirements.

“The continuing drive for convenience in the food sector has fuelled the demand for attractive and practical packs that can maintain product quality and freshness while at the same time promoting and enhancing a premium brand image,” comments Dave Pratt, Sales Manager for RPC UK Injection Moulding.  

“SuperLock® offers a very modern solution that has already proved successful in a range of applications throughout mainland Europe and we are delighted to be able to add it to our portfolio to bring the same benefits to our UK customers.”
