In response to continued high demand for convenience packaging, RPC Bebo UK has launched a selection of new packs in both PP and PET suitable for a wide variety of products.

The 60mm-diameter PP pot – available in 4.5cl, 6cl and 7.5cl sizes – is said to be ideal for dips, salads, fruit pieces and snack meals. The four-compartment snap PP tray, with a 22cl brimful capacity per cavity, offers a multi-pack design for both food and non-food applications. All four compartments can be easily separated for individual servings or to stack in a cupboard.

Both packs can be specified in a choice of materials: monolayer PP or ultra-high clarity PPure and barrier PP/EVOH/PP for long ambient shelf-life products. They are suitable for direct food contact, hot filling and high temperature processes such as sterilisation and pasteurisation. Special grades are also available for microwave cooking and reheating.

The 101mm diameter straight-sided PET container, in 19.8cl, 26.2cl, 29.4cl and 39.1cl sizes, has also been designed for many types of food applications, including chilled products. It can be specified in coloured PET or offset printed, subject to minimum order quantities, to help create brand differentiation and maximise on-shelf appeal. The container is suitable for direct food contact and a choice of lids is available.
