A new addition to the range of Britain’s oldest pasta sauces, Ragú, has become the first UK product to go on-shelf in RPC Superfos’s award-winning SuperLock® barrier pack.

The 400ml pack, supplied to manufacturer Symingtons by RPC Containers Blackburn, has been selected in preference to glass due to its ambient shelf life of up to 24 months, glass-like transparency and non-shatter qualities.

SuperLock® containers combine an oxygen barrier on all surfaces with a membrane seal to ensure an almost non-existent oxygen transmission rate.

The barrier is created through the use of a leading-edge in-mould labelling (IML) technique. Labels are manufactured using a special co-extruded barrier foil and are applied during the injection moulding of the containers. After filling, the containers are sealed with a PP/EVOH/PP membrane seal. Together the two processes ensure virtually zero oxygen transmission.

The pre-printed labels offer outstanding graphic quality and the ability to produce highly colourful and intricate designs. Equally important, the clarity and transparency of the polypropylene containers means that clear sections can be incorporated into the labels so that the products themselves can also be visible on shelf.

Further consumer benefits include easy re-closability thanks to the twist-off/screw-on lid. SuperLock® is microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe.
