New Brand Owner Affirms RPC Kutenholz Relationship

The new owner of established pickle brand Nowka has stressed the importance of the company’s ongoing relationship with RPC Kutenholz.

Alfred Paulsen GmbH Co. KG assumed the trademark rights of Nowka Sauerkonserven from Uelzen in July.

“We will continue to market the products under the Nowka brand with the same familiar and well established quality”, says Manager Director Alfred Paulsen. The collaboration with RPC Kutenholz for the packaging of the pickles is also part of this.

Nowka was already packaging its pickles in RPC Kutenholz’s multilayer containers and for Paulsen, the containers were developed further to match filling line processes. RPC Kutenholz developed a new neck geometry allowing the Thermic Ultra container to be sealed on Mondini equipment by Ribbeck in the conduction process, and subsequently closed with a twist-off metal closure.

“The new version doesn’t just find favour with our customers,” comments Herr Jungerman, Operations Manager of Paulsen, “but it also simplifies the handling during the filling process.”

The Paulsen family business was established in 1909 in Otterndorf on the Niederelbe between Cuxhaven and Hamburg and has specialised in the production of mild but tasty flavoured pickles. By using granulated sugar and no preservatives, Paulsen satisfies the taste buds of a wide range of consumers.

Paulsen fills the 2.4 litre Thermic Ultra jar, which is part of an extensive standard series, with products including crunchy gherkins, lightly-spiced red cabbage, fresh sauerkraut, pickled beetroot, assorted salads, mixed pickles and dill pickles in naturally cloudy brine, for customers including bulk users in the catering trade.
