A PS (Protective Shoulder) container from RPC Containers Oakham has been selected for the relaunch of supermarket giant Spar’s 2.5L popcorn tubs.
The high-quality decorative options presented by RPC Oakham’s in-mould labelling capabilities were among the wow factors for manufacturer Big Bear Confectionery, one of the UK’s leading independent confectionery manufacturers.
In addition to helping ensure a standout presence on shelf, the white tubs - injection-moulded in PP - also come with tamper evidence as standard. A fitted handle is attached to the strengthening collar for added consumer convenience.
Mark Seddon, general sales manager of RPC Oakham, confirms: “We are continuing to see a growth in the use of IML for confectionery because of the advantages it presents – eliminating the need for a secondary decoration process and reducing both scrappage rates and work-in-process.
“It also delivers a more eye-catching design than a simple printed label.”
Big Bear Confectionery has been manufacturing quality confectionery in the UK for more than 100 years. The company’s products are enjoyed across the globe and can be found in most retail and wholesale channels.
