RPC Bebo, part of UK-based RPC Group, has provided multilayer barrier pots to France’s fresh olives supplier Croc’Frais.
Produced at RPC Bebo’s facility in Deventer, the Netherlands, Croc’Frais will use the 250ml pots to pack its extensive range of products.
Developed with clear polypropylene, the thermoformed pots are designed to make the olives more visible on shelves.
A barrier layer of ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) has been used in the pots to protect the product from oxygen ingress and increase its shelf life.
The lightweight and easy-open lids have also made the pots easy to use.
Croc’Frais is currently labelling the pots, which contain different recipes, and could be customised with pack and lid printing by RPC Bebo in future.
Established in 1998, Croc’Frais is a subsidiary of Mediterranean product specialist Olives & Co, which also owns Mille et un Sud, Maison Raymond, Le Marmiton and Marie Amelie.
RPC Bebo manufactures thermoformed packaging for margarines, spreads, fresh and frozen foods, coffee capsules, vending cups and dairy products.
The company has seven manufacturing sites in Germany, France, England, Poland and the Netherlands, as well as a sales office in France and a distribution centre in Germany.
In May, Spain’s seafood producers Angulas Aguinaga launched a new range of microwavable mussel dishes packed in plastic trays provided by RPC Bebo Food Packaging.
