RPC Group’s unit RPC Superfos has unveiled a new spoon-in-the-lid solution for its 75mm container that is used to store yogurts, desserts and other dairy products.

The new solution with a user-friendly foldable polypropylene spoon, making it suitable for consumers who eat on-the-go.

Unlike the conventional lids that are sealed with aluminium foil, the APET lid features a fine PET seal that can be easily torn off.

“We are introducing this spoon-in-the-lid solution so that our customers have the potential to make their products stand out in refrigerated display counters.”

RPC Superfos Stilling product portfolio manager Rikke Justenborg said: “We have created a lid with a two-piece spoon, which matches the widespread and popular small diameter typically used for a pot of yoghurt or a chocolate mousse.

“We are introducing this spoon-in-the-lid solution so that our customers have the potential to make their products stand out in refrigerated display counters.

“And, as we all know, getting attention is step one for increased sales.”

Available in six different colours, the seal can be used by the brands for marketing and printing messages.

The lid can also be specified in any transparent colour, which provides the brand with the opportunity to design the product according to their choice where the pot, lid and seal complement each other.

RPC Superfos has kept the lid height of the container to an absolute minimum to reduce raw material usage and provide significant logistical benefits.

It also offers a combined solution that includes both the spoon and topping in the lid ensuring complete hygiene maintenance, with the spoon kept separate from the topping.
