Plastic packaging products manufacturer Berry Global’s company Superfos has launched a packaging solution for the new MakeGusto range of Italian ready meals.
Named SuperLight, the new container integrates plastic and cardboard.
The inner part of the packaging is made of plastic to bear the heat generated from boiling water, while the outside is made of cardboard.
Additionally, the packaging is sustainable as the plastic can be separated from the cardboard after use, making it readily recyclable.
Produced by family owned Antaar&S, the MakeGusto range is specially designed for export.
The range comprises five varieties such as Pasta Alfredo and is sold in a 400ml SuperLight cup.
Antaar&S product development manager Francesco Loconte said: “We want to bring the taste and tradition of Italy to countries outside Europe, and make it extremely easy for the end-user to prepare our rice or pasta meals. The SuperLight cup from Superfos perfectly supports our ambition.
“The SuperLight cup allows a fast and smooth process on our filling line. It is also an advantage at the end of the line where we check each product by X-ray and a metal detector.
“As the SuperLight packaging is simply plastic and cardboard and contains no aluminium, it makes our quality control very easy to carry out.”
Last month, Berry Global partnered with Bhoomi to launch a 100% sugarcane-based bottle for their cold-pressed cane water elixir.
