The demand for sustainable packaging solutions continues to increase across many markets. However, consumers still expect the same levels of functionality and user-friendliness.
Leading Polish ice cream producer, Bracia Koral, is now taking the initiative in its sector with the introduction of packs that can be reused once the product is consumed.
The PET jars from RPC PET Power ideally demonstrate the appropriateness of plastic for ice cream packaging. Their light weight and unbreakability ensure safe and easy handling while their excellent clarity effectively showcases the delicious ice creams. The practical design of the jars now offers the potential for them to be reused for many different purposes, further increasing their appeal among consumers.
Currently two flavours – Cream Nut and Chocolate and Mamusia (Mummy’s) Cheesecake – have been launched in the 450ml jars as part of Bracia Koral’s new ‘Flavours of Childhood’ range.
“We selected the jars from RPC PET Power because they best meet our needs, and because the company provides excellent sales service,” comments Piotr Gasiorowski, Koral’s Sales and Marketing Director.
“We don’t want our empty packs to go immediately in the waste bin but instead offer a useful second life as a household, workshop or toy container. We have also launched a competition to highlight this potential.”
New jar makes its presence felt
RPC PET Power has created a new jar that is taller than similar-sized jars, enabling it to achieve greater on-shelf presence in crowded markets. The new Ovar Round is available in 1300 and 3000ml sizes, allowing companies to offer different volumes or create a family look across a range of products.
Talent spotting for the next generation
RPC is sponsoring the 2017 Student and Schools Starpack Awards as part of its ongoing commitment to attract the next generation of packaging professionals. The awards are designed to encourage the cream of the UK's young people to consider a career in packaging design and technology, and play an important role in fostering talent within the nation's schools, colleges and universities.
Stylish haircare pack solution
The suitability of RPC Bramlage’s Ocyl bottle for haircare ranges has been underlined by its selection by the Kao Group for its hairstyle brand Goldwell. The stylish 125ml cylindrical Ocyl bottle is produced in black polyethylene with a matching black dispenser, providing a smart, elegant and professional design to complement and reflect the premium image of Goldwell BondPro+ protection serum.
Spoon In The Lid Advantage for Salad Range
The good looks and convenience of RPC Superfos’s EasySnacking™ pack were key factors in its selection by Lithuanian food producer Viciunai Group for a range of surimi sticks and fish salads. In particular the special spoon in the lid feature of the pack makes the new VICI salads range ideal for eating on-the-go as the perfect companion for a picnic, a trip or at work.
Small change with big positive consequences
At the beginning of this calendar year, we informed you about the fact that PET Power had become part of the packaging multinational RPC from that point onwards. In the past ten months, you have found that PET Power as a company has continued all its business normally. We continue our efforts to be a trusted and reliable supplier to our customers. However, something is now changing in our appearance, because we are getting a new logo.
PET Power's sterile Media bottle ranges
PET Power has seen an increasing demand for sterile Media bottles over the past year and with its clean room, the company is in the perfect position to satisfy this demand with two lines: The Square Media range and the Round Media range, in a range of capacities from 125ml to 1.1L. Apart from the weight savings and the unbreakable nature of PET, the bottles are also resistant to temperatures as low as -20C° and are therefore suitable for cold stores.
PET Power's sustainable PET program
Among packaging materials, PET excels when it comes to sustainability. It can be completely recycled, it is light, compact and almost unbreakable. When you take into account the weight, the consumption of energy and the emission of CO2, it is far better then the next available alternative. PET packaging increases the shelf life of its contents, thus reducing wastage and benefiting the environment as a result. PET Power regards sustainability as a matter of social responsibility and has embedded sustainability into its core business and values.
PET Power expands Conical family to include 500ml model
PET Power has increased its popular Conical range of bottles to include a larger size. The family has formed part of PET Power's standard range for over five years and now also includes a 500ml version, in addition to the 150ml, 200ml and 250ml original sizes. The name of the family speaks for itself. The conical shape ensures that the base has a relatively large surface area. The model gradually tapers off towards the neck, which gives the bottle an attractive stately look and ensures that it stands out strikingly on the shelf.
PET Power introduces refill set for electronic cigarettes
PET Power has responded to growing demand for electronic cigarette refills by introducing a complete packaging set in three different volumes; 10ml, 15ml and 20ml. The set consists of a small PET bottle, a 12mm TE/CRC closure (Tamper Evident/Child Resistant Closure) and a dispensing cap. All three items have been subjected to comprehensive tests and they satisfy all the quality requirements for this specific market.
Stand out with PET Power's new Auxo Round bottle
The 330ml Auxo Round from PET Power is sure to stand out from other products as a result of its light-hearted curves and it is precisely these curves which generate many different associations among consumers when they hold the bottle for the first time. In packaging terms, this makes it possible for the Auxo Round to respond accordingly with the versatility to provide the perfect combination of product and packaging.
PET Power describe the current packaging trends
The packaging market is an innovative place which is constantly in motion, and not entirely without reason, as the right packaging is crucial for the success of any product. The four standard functions of packaging (protection of the product, keeping products together, providing information and serving as a means of advertising) will perhaps always remain unchanged. Nonetheless, it is certainly possible to identify trends within the packaging market.
The Atlas Round from PET Power: Cylindrical and sleek
The latest addition to the wide range of standard PET models from PET Power is the Atlas Round. The new family consists of pocket-sized bottles of 30ml, 40ml and 50ml size. Just like the Sharp Cylindrical series, this range offers small volumes and a round, cylindrical shape. However, it is a little taller and narrower with the neck of the bottle at a steeper angle.
Mix&Match with PET Power to create a unique look
Standard packaging with a unique look has until now meant a standard product in a different colour or finished with a decorative effect. PET Power has brought the approach to a new level with the 'Mix&Match' concept which allows customers to create a truly unique look from the company's standard closures with 70SP400 and 89SP400 neck finishes.
IML lid labelling Pet Power style
Standing out from all the alternatives on the shelf is a must for every brand. This can be achieved by means of a striking shape, attractive decoration or a combination of the two. In-mold labelling (IML) is a less well-known decoration technique for lids, offered by PET Power as one of a range of decoration options available to customize products and give a distinctly different look.
PET Power streamlines its Tumble Bottle
PET Power's new model Tumble Bottle still has the light-hearted shape but offers sleeker lines into the neck. The existing model has been redesigned and been transformed into a streamlined 300ml bottle. Sitting on a spherical base, tapering into a 28mm neck, with a 28SP410 neck finish, the Tumble Bottle can be combined with numerous different fliptop closures and pumps, lending itself to a variety of applications.
Remia challenge PET Power to design a tough, manly bottle
Remia truly are makers of good taste and their latest acquisition certainly lives up to their motto. For the top-end market, Remia wanted to develop BBQ sauces which were packaged in a tough, manly bottle. With this challenge in mind, PET Power presented several models and this attractive rectangular version was chosen.
Sleek and simple, yet a little bit different
The simplest of packaging lines tend to be the ones that stand out most on the shelf and the rectangular range is a typical example of this. The nice straight lines create four ideal presentation areas. Not only does the shape ensure that the model really stands out on the shelf, it is also highly efficient from a logistical point of view.
Angular design of the Square Bottle family
PET Power's standard range includes a striking family known as the Square Bottle family. This range is characterised by its square shape. Another striking feature is that the 'shoulders' of the bottle also form an angle of almost 90%, which is unusual for a PET bottle. The model therefore offers plenty of potential for developing a high-quality brand design.
Sleek and simple lines make the 1-litre Oblong stand out
PET Power has expanded its wide range of 1-litre bottles to include a new model. The sleek new bottle is called the Oblong Oval 1000ml. The PET bottle is characterized by its sleek yet simple lines. In combination with the volume, this bottle is impossible to ignore. At almost 30cm high and measuring 10cm across the front, it really stands out on the shelf. The bottle is produced with the common 28SP410 neck finish, making it easy to combine with many standard closures or pumps.
Completely new, but still very familiar
For many of its clients, this new addition to PET Power's range of services will come as a big surprise: PET Power can now also supply HDPE and PP bottles. These are produced under the management of PET Power, using its own moulds and in accordance with the same quality standards which customers have come to expect from the company's usual PET packaging.
Small in volume but with a big personality
Because PET Power knows how important the packaging is for the presentation of a product, the company is constantly looking for the ultimate shape. As a result, the company recently released its new standard model: Lotis Oval 150 ml. With its 150 ml volume, this oval model is one of the smaller models on the shelf.
3.5-litre Recessed Cylindrical: elegant despite the large volume
PET Power is known for its comprehensive range of wide-mouth jars. Recessed Cylindrical is perhaps their best-known family. The company is now expanding this standard family to include a 3.5-litre jar. This new volume has the same distinctive shapes (round with a recessed label area), but nonetheless differs slightly from the other members of the family.
Taller flapper cap model with more "size impression"
PET Power is expanding its standard range of closures to include a functional flapper cap for two 63 mm PET jars. This specific flapper cap stands out from the other standard flapper caps because of its height. The taller side gives the cap an improved ‘size impression’.
Pimped out packaging!
For many years, PET Power has been exploring all the possibilities offered by PET packaging. The company's latest acquisitions include two PET cars: a 4x4 off-road vehicle (715ml) and a minibus (725ml). With these surprising models, PET Power once again wishes to demonstrate the almost unlimited possibilities offered by PET.
