Original Press Release:

Apollo Takes Long Shelf Life Convenience to a New Level

RPC Containers Corby has launched a modern plastic alternative to the traditional tin can.  The new 380ml Apollo container combines extended ambient shelf life with all the established lightweight, easy handling and safety benefits of plastics and also offers the convenience of re-closing.

The high barrier Apollo features a PP/EVOH/PP multilayer structure for the effective protection against oxygen ingress that ensures long shelf life.  It is suitable for a variety of food processes including hot fill, retort and pasteurising.  The container offers an attractive, fluted design in the same diameter as a can, with full sleeving and labelling options to create effecting branding and on-shelf appeal.  It is also stackable to maximise shelf space.

The neck of the Apollo container is specifically designed for the Aptar Bap Trilogy closure, which ensures excellent pack integrity and product freshness. The foil seal features a plastic ring pull for easy opening and there is an overcap for re-closing, which minimises food waste.

The lightweight pack is highly resistant to breakage and denting and avoids any sharp edges to provide maximum safety and convenience in the home. 

"We are continuing to push the boundaries of what can be achieved in barrier plastics," comments RPC Corby's General Manager Michael Stegeman.

"The Apollo offers all the established benefits of multilayer plastic in a popular container format.  Just as important are its sustainable advantages of extended product shelf life, reduced food waste and light weight, which underline its relevance in today's environmentally-aware markets."
