CHICAGO, Oct. 31 -- Pack Expo 2006 -- Being the first in a new package is bliss for Aimia Foods, which recently introduced Galaxy® Hot Chocolate Bliss, a traditional hot chocolate drink, in Sonoco's Sono-Wrap® single-wrap paperboard package, Europe's first use of the innovative rectangle-shaped can for hot chocolate.
Sonoco is supplying Aimia Foods with a 103 x 99 x 155mm (400 gram) Sono- Wrap container. The distinctively shaped can is made of a single laminated structure that incorporates paperboard and a liner. The label is printed directly on the paperboard, and the finished structure is die-cut and sealed together. For consumer convenience and to protect product integrity, the can features a tabbed peelable foil membrane heat-sealed to the top of the package. A plastic overcap lets consumers easily reseal the pack after opening.
The package's unique shape and six-color litho printing will help capture consumers' attention, while varnish adds a layer of brilliance for vibrant graphics.
The Sono-Wrap package is hermetic, protecting the delicate flavor of the chocolate and keeping the powdered mix from clumping. Galaxy Hot Chocolate Bliss contains 14 percent real Galaxy® Chocolate and to enjoy it, consumers simply add milk.
Galaxy Hot Chocolate Bliss in Sonoco's Sono-Wrap package is available at Tesco and Morrisons throughout the U.K.
