Austria-based Greiner Packaging International has developed a light and shatterproof yoghurt packaging solution using a blow moulding process for French dairy firm Senoble.

The unbreakable PP container holds 125g of yoghurt and is highly stable compared to other glass packages.

Senoble will use the new container for packaging its strawberry yoghurt product Delisse Yaourt au lait entier. The lower third of the round, conical shape of the container is broken up by protrusions that resemble mountain peaks.

The yogurt product bears 'Marque Repère', which is used to mark products with a good price / performance ratio and environmental benefits.

Greiner Packaging International kavo division head Günter Ausserwöger said: "This type of production allows us to combine highly refined process knowledge with our expertise in the dairy product market in the best way possible."

The container is manufactured at Greiner Packaging's facility in Rastatt, Germany, which is around 150km away from Senoble in Chateau Salins, where the containers are filled.

Both companies have previously employed a wide range of technologies to conduct several packaging projects across France, Slovakia and Spain.

Greiner Packaging International manufactures and markets plastic packaging solutions for food and non-food industries.
