RPC are cup winners for Kraft

RPC crafts thermoformed PS cups for Gevalia

December 18, 2013
Trans

A brand new thermoformed hot drink vending cup has been created by RPC Bramlage (rpcbramlage-wikousa.com) for food giant Kraft in the US.

It forms part of Kraft’s Gevalia single-serve coffee system and offers further evidence of RPC’s pre-eminence in the fast-growing capsule market, where the new cup offers the long shelf-life required by customers.

The thermoformed PS cup contains a special filter paper. Coffee – or another beverage – is placed into the filter and the cup is sealed. To make the drink, the cup is inserted into the brewing machine and pressurised water flows through the pack at the correct temperature.

Pilot tools and initial start-up production were initiated at RPC’s Bremervörde facility in Germany, ahead of full production at the company’s US factory in Morgantown.
