RPC Bebo Plastik (rpc-beboplastik.de)introduces a versatile and user-friendly re-closable food packaging concept for a variety of applications, including soups, sauces and ready meals.
The new Bebo Twist™ container can be specified in either mono or multilayer polypropylene and with a variety of decoration options to meet individual customer requirements.
The thermoformed tub incorporates thread segments in the seal flange which securely lock with the inner thread flights on the injection moulded PP lids to combine easy and reliable opening and closing with an accurately fitting lid that keeps product safe between uses.
The high-barrier version features an EVOH layer that provides an effective barrier against oxygen ingress for an extended ambient shelf life. It also delivers the necessary strength to allow hot fill, pasteurisation, sterilisation and aseptic filling.
The tub can be decorated by in-mould label thermoforming or by printing, labelling or sleeving after manufacture, enabling food manufacturers to create effective on-shelf differentiation and tailor the pack to meet specific brand objectives. The complementary cap, injection moulded by RPC Bramlage Food, can also be labelled.
“Our new Bebo Twist™ tub combines consumer convenience with effective product protection and promotion,” says Robert Steinmeijer, RPC Bebo sales and marketing manager. “Initial customer reaction has been extremely positive with the first two product launches already in the pipeline for 2014.”
