The combination of effective product protection and high-impact on-shelf appeal has made the SuperLock® pot from Superfos, a Berry Global company, the ideal solution for a quality fresh and pure guacamole, produced by leading Spanish tropical fruit processor Avomix.

Importantly, the pot is strong enough to withstand high pressure processing. This eliminates the need for additives and preservatives in the product, which has been a major part of Avomix’s offering for over 15 years, as the company’s CEO Juan Antonio explains:

“At Avomix, we focus on putting the most natural products on the market. We want to promote healthy eating through our balanced and all-natural products with no additives, no added sugar, and no preservatives. To this end, the packaging, such as that for guacamole, plays a vital role.”

Avomix uses high pressure processing (HPP) to give the minimally processed avocado products a longer shelf life. HPP inactivates vegetative microorganisms – for instance bacteria, yeasts or fungi potentially found in food products - without compromising the taste, smell, and visual experience.

Natural products which are processed like this need a packaging solution which can resist the very high pressure of the water. At the same time, the pack must look attractive in the retail chill cabinet.

Avomix opted for the SuperLock® pot with a twist-off lid, while the non-barrier in-mould labels with special dyes and lacquers are from Belgium label supplier Verstraete IML.

SuperLock® is manufactured in 100% polypropylene which is a recyclable material. The replaceable lid also protects the contents once opened and allows portion control.

This new packaging solution was the result of close collaboration between Avomix, Superfos and Verstraete IML, creating a moisture and pressure resistant, user-friendly pot with a captivating fresh look.

“For us, it is important that our packaging is of the same high-quality as our guacamole,” concludes Juan Antonio. “We are pleased with the SuperLock® pot. It perfectly meets our expectations; it is strong and looks appealing and the easily reclosable lid is a further benefit for the end-user.”

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.
