RPC Containers Corby has produced a convenience-size multilayer polypropylene bottle for Vegenat's oral clinical nutrition range.

The new 200ml bespoke bottle offers a more modern-looking design, ergonomic, effective product protection and preservation, and excellent functionality during filling and for the end consumer.

Based in Spain, Vegenat specialises in dietetic food and clinical nutrition. Its oral range Nutrición Clinica is formulated with a unique blend of nutrients for people with different pathologies and special nutritional requirements. Vegenat products are sponsored by the Spanish National Health Services and sold exclusively in hospitals, nursing homes and pharmacies.

The bottle has been developed for over-the-counter sales in pharmacies as well as in hospitals. The bottle is blow moulded using a six-layer construction, comprising PP for durability and EVOH for barrier protection against oxygen ingress and to avoid degradation of the formulation's critical ingredients.

Its eye-catching ribbed design combines attractiveness on-shelf and easy handling for the end consumer with strength and rigidity during the aseptic filling and retort process. The bottle has also been designed to take a shrink sleeve for an all-over decoration that maximises brand identity and awareness.

Further, the lightweight bottle is easy to transport and ensures no risk of breakages during filling or in use.

RPC Corby has a long-standing relationship with Vegenat as a supplier of barrier packaging solutions.

"RPC bottles have over the years delivered effective product protection, safety and end-user convenience", comments Mariana Fuentes of Vegenat. "This latest pack also demonstrates the company's design capabilities in creating a more modern looking bottle while retaining all the necessary functionality."
