The SuperLock® plastic food pot from RPC Superfos has been honoured with a Packaging Oscar at Salon Emballage in Paris, for its outstanding barrier properties and user friendly design.
The international award, in the Consumer Goods (Foodstuff) category, underpins the remarkable qualities of the SuperLock® pot, made possible by extensive work in research, innovation, efficiency and inventiveness.
SuperLock® offers a very long shelf life for many types of convenience food which are not traditionally packed in plastic. The lightweight, injected moulded container is available with barrier protection on all surfaces of the packaging, and is membrane sealed.
This combination of properties ensures almost non-existent oxygen transmission and means convenience food can stay on shelf up to three times longer.
Furthermore, SuperLock® offers eye-catching decoration options and is very user friendly, not least because of the twist-off screw-on lid.
A broad range of food producers are already enjoying the many great properties of the packaging. SuperLock® is on shelves all over Europe filled with products such as fruit desserts, nuts, vegetable spreads, dairy products, pickles, dips and sourdough.
"We have won a wonderful prize of great renown. The Packaging Oscar underlines our level of innovation and we are very honoured to be among the chosen few,” says Regional Sales Director Laurent Morel from RPC Superfos Region French.
A total of 108 candidates were in the running for 17 Oscars in various categories. The winners were selected by a high level jury assisted by top professional members of the international packaging community.
SuperLock® has now received six international awards.
