After a few trials, Aquarium Systems in France has gradually moved from virgin plastic pails to ones made with 50% PCR, post-consumer recycled material. The quality, sturdiness and vivid artwork decoration of the SuperCube and SuperLift Extra pails from Berry Superfos are just convincing, says CEO.
“Now we only use pails with recycled plastic content.”
Ornamental fish and corals are kept for joyful pleasure and aesthetic purposes in many homes. To keep them thriving and healthy, you need marine salt − it could be the sort produced by Aquarium Systems in France, delivering to customers world-wide.
The two major marine salt brands are Instant Ocean, used to match seawater in an aquarium, and Reef Crystals, which facilitates coral growth. Both are among the most popular salts in Europe because of their very fine consistency and solubility.
Successful move from 100% virgin plastic to 50% PCR
A hardly visible, yet most important, change happened recently as regards the plastic packaging solution. The full salt range now comes in square SuperCube® and round SuperLift Extra containers made with 50% post-consumer recycled material (PCR), developed and delivered by Berry Superfos. Sizes vary from 3.5 litres to 21.6 litres.
Thomas Bertschy, the CEO of Aquarium Systems, is most pleased with the move towards recycled plastic:
“Aquarium Systems took interest in recycling a few years ago and had our first experience with PCR pails which turned out well throughout the entire supply chain. Today, we only use pails made with a very high share of recycled plastic. The SuperCube PCR and SuperLift Extra PCR pails are of great quality, sturdy and good looking.”
Vivid colours on PCR pails
PCR pails from Berry Superfos are available in several colours, however not in red and purple, which were the pail colours used for Instant Ocean and Reef Crystals, respectively. Instead, the pail body is now black, but splendidly decorated with the advanced In-Mould labelling technique from Superfos. The two artwork decorations in vivid colours are eye-catching.
“The square pails are excellent for creating a beautiful facing at point of sale where our products stand as straight as an arrow. The round pails are best for larger and heavier volumes,”
Asked about the business relation with Berry Superfos, Thomas Bertschy gives positive feedback:
“Our collaboration with Berry Superfos is good. The fact that we have worked together for around 20 years speaks for itself. We value our packaging solution provider’s focus on quality and their innovative edge. Superfos is also at the forefront in respect of innovating with PCR, post-consumer recycled material.”

The circular economy is in full swing: material once considered as waste, is used to create products of higher value. Like in this case, where off cuts from a Berry Superfos facility in Denmark via a recycler become biological filters for water purification in aquaculture. That’s good for the environment and an example of responsible use of resources

Tub delivers lighter weight and improved performance
A new tub from Berry Superfos for one of the UK’s most popular spreadable butters has achieved a 9% weight reduction while delivering increased efficiency on the filling line and incorporating an attractive new look. The need for new tooling for the production of the 500g polypropylene tub for Arla Foods UK’s Anchor Spreadable brand resulted in the company re-evaluating the tub and the processes connected to it.
The switch from black to semi-clear plastic for a cake tub has had a significant impact on the pack’s sustainability profile. Thanks to the change, the 1080ml tub manufactured by Berry Superfos, for a range of cakes produced by Park Cakes for leading food retailer M&S can now be described as ‘widely recyclable’ in the UK.

A survey conducted by the Danish Technological Institute has shown that 14% of Danish household food waste stems from meal leftovers. Although these can be reheated, very often this is in a microwave oven, and the survey identified that many find the uneven heating of this process makes the food less savoury. In an attempt to alter this behaviour, RPC Superfos has contributed to the development of a new multifunctional plastic storage box which ensures a more even distribution of the microwave heat.

Quality and functionality from ice-cream pack

Thanks to In-Mould Labelling, it is possible to show the texture of the ice cream in razor-sharp photo quality on the packaging. This is complemented by the striking purple colour of the lid that catches the consumer’s attention.
Advanced in-mould labelling from RPC Superfos has been a critical factor in the successful relaunch of a range of high-quality paints and primers from Bosnia and Herzegovina paint company BAUklar. The injection moulded SuperOval pail feature close-up drawings of tigers with striking details and appeal that form the essential visual communication of the pack. In-Mould Labelling (IML) makes it possible to reproduce even the finest details of the tiger design, so that end- users can almost feel that they can touch the whiskers.

The installation of new injection moulding machines and the reuse of heat from cooling are among the successful energy reduction initiatives at the RPC Superfos Randers facility in Denmark that have enabled the site to achieve ISO 50001:2011 certification ‒ an Energy Management Standard issued by independent authorities – for the second year in a row.
Groundbreak(fast)ing for Le Petit Déjeuner!
