RPC Superfos’s SuperLock pot is delivering the convenience and on-shelf appeal that has contributed to the successful launch of a new gourmet popcorn for Danish start-up company Nordic Gourmet Factory.

Handmade in northern Denmark and consisting of exclusively natural ingredients with no additives, NoCrapGourmet is available in a range of flavours from the classic – caramel and salted – to the more adventurous, such as liquorice, raspberry, and Belgian chocolate.

With its large transparent area and modern, elegant artwork produced by In-Mould Labelling, complemented by a black lid, the SuperLock pot is an attractive and distinctive presence on shelves. It holds roughly half a litre of popcorn and the twist-off, screw-on lid allows users to easily re-close it for safe storage and later consumption.

NoCrapGourmet is the result of a trial-and-error process that saw Nordic Gourmet Factory consider more than 500 recipes before settling on the perfect formula for a fine taste and crunchy texture. As Tommy Jensen, Founder and Director, explains, the company brought these same exacting standards to its choice of packaging.

“Packaging plays a major role in creating an image for your product. We wanted a pack which immediately could convey that our popcorn is out of the ordinary.

The solution from RPC Superfos is different from other solutions on the plastic packaging market and we really like the screw lid – one of the reasons why we decided to use the SuperLock pot. Another point is that the pots stack well so that our distributors have the best options to create an eye-catching in-shop display. The SuperLock pot helps us to stand out from other products on the gourmet candy market.”

NoCrapGourmet has already enjoyed early success since its launch, with its liquorice variety winning Silver Prize at The Liquorice Taste Awards 2017, and the establishment of several distribution agreements.

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.

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.

Spoon-in-lid solution for dairy products

An innovative spoon-in-the-lid from RPC Superfos for its popular 75mm container is guaranteed to make yogurts, desserts and other dairy products stand out from the crowd. The new solution is perfect for consumers who eat on-the-go, with the foldable polypropylene spoon simple to access, assemble and use. The APET lid features a fine PET seal that is easy to tear off. As such, it represents a significant improvement over similar lids which are sealed with aluminium foil, and thus oblige the user to find the spoon with which to eat the product.
