Schlicht also added: "Allowing a longer self-life, as well as avoiding breaking cups during distribution, the new innovation contributes to Klöckner Pentaplast’s support of the initiative SAVE FOOD."

The new packaging solution can be processed on standard FFS lines without investments and helps customers to develop a packaging design according to their brand’s and product’s benefits, the company claimed.

Klöckner Pentaplast EMEA and Asia marketing, packaging and specialties director Stuart Ball said: "clikPET offers new possibilities for packaging and product innovation in the yogurt market.

"The PET-based alternative to polystyrene offers opportunities to drive reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) whilst changing consumer perception with brand differentiation in a competitive environment."

The company said that the new PET-based technology can be used on key FFS lines, seals, labels and trays.
