Orkla Foods Norway, in the international packaging competition, has awarded the prestigious WorldStar 2017 to RPC Superfos and RPC Promens for their innovative packaging solution for a range of premium cold salad.Organised by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) the WorldStar Competition is the pre-eminent international award in packaging. The 2017 Awards presentation ceremony takes place during Interpack 2017 in Düsseldorf, Germany in May.
The thermoformed twist cup with an injection molded lid was packed by successfully mixing two different resin materials and two different technologies, which has similarities with a traditional glass jar making it stand out as something special in the cold salad segment.
