RPC Bebo Plastik of Germany has developed a re-closable food packaging concept for a variety of potential applications, including soups, sauces and ready meals.
The new Bebo Twist container can be thermoformed in either mono or multilayer polypropylene with various decoration options.
The tub incorporates thread segments in the seal flange which securely lock with the inner thread flights on the injection moulded PP lids, allowing opening and closing.
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. The complementary cap, which is injection moulded by RPC Bramlage Food, can also be labelled.
“Our new Bebo Twist tub combines consumer convenience with effective product protection and promotion,” said 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.”
