Packaging Oscar Goes to SuperLock
RPC Containers Ltd
Rutland, LE15 6RW
Press release date: November 21, 2012
The plastic pot SuperLock® from RPC Superfos received an Oscar for its outstanding barrier properties and user friendliness. At the occasion of Salon Emballage 2012, the prize was awarded to RPC Superfos at a festive event in Paris.
The packaging solution SuperLock® received a Packaging Oscar on November 19 at Salon Emballage in Paris. The international award in the Consumer Goods Section, subsection Foodstuff, underpins the remarkable qualities of SuperLock® developed and made by RPC Superfos, a cluster within the British RPC Group. The pot is a result of persistent efforts in the fields of research, innovation, efficiency and inventiveness.
Innovative plastic pot offers very long shelf life
SuperLock® went all the way because the pot offers very long shelf life for many types of convenience food. Traditionally, these are not packed in plastic. The light-weight, injected moulded plastic container is available with barrier protection on all surfaces of the packaging and it is also membrane sealed. The combination of the two properties ensures an almost non-existent oxygen transmission. It means that convenience food can stay on shelf twice as long - or even three times longer - than in reference packaging. Further, SuperLock® offers eye-catching decoration options and is very user friendly, not least because of the twist-off screw-on lid.
Suits many types of food
Food producers from a broad range of segments are already enjoying the many great properties of the packaging. SuperLock® is on shelves all over Europe filled with food products such as fruit desserts, nuts, vegetable spreads, dairy products, pickles, dips and sourdough.
"We have won a wonderful prize of great renown. The Oscar underlines our innovative level and we are very honored to be among the chosen few," says Regional Sales Director, Laurent Morel from RPC Superfos Region French.
A total of 108 candidates were running for the award, hoping to get one of the 17 Oscars which have been awarded to prize winners in various categories. The winners were selected by a high level jury assisted by top professional members of the international packaging community.
SuperLock® has received no less than five international awards besides the Packaging Oscar of this week, Oscar 2012 de l'Emballage.
