RPC Promens Consumer has developed a new 1,000ml blow-moulded bottle, under a partnership with German sauce producer Zum Dorfkrug.
The new bottle, which looks similar to a milk-bottle, is blow-moulded in polypropylene.
Available in 250ml and 500ml sizes, the bottle complies with the safety requirements of the foodservice sector.
Being lightweight, the properties of high-strength and resistance to breakage makes the bottle an ideal solution for salad counters and the catering trade.
Developed for Sylter Salatfrische salad dressing, the new bottle would also be used to package honey and mustard, yogurt, French dressing, vinaigrette and American salad dressing variants.
Though the bottle is larger in size, it is easy to handle, and squeezable for accurate control and dispense of the dressings.
The bottle is currently available on the salad bars in around 150 Edeka supermarkets.
RPC Promens Consumer, a unit of RPC Group, manufacturers bottles from various polymers, including PE, PP, PET, PETG, PAN and Adflex.
The company also manufactures blow-moulded barrier bottles, as well as foodservice jars and ambient shelf stable packs. Its products are supplied to food, cosmetics & personal care, household, chemicals, mineral oils and pharmaceuticals markets.
RPC Group operates as a plastic products design and engineering company for packaging and non-packaging markets. It operates in 24 countries worldwide.
