Bespoke dessert pack from RPC Superfos wins a World Star

superfos2001A bespoke dessert packing solution developed by RPC Superfos for Finnish dairy producer Valio Ltd has been awarded a WorldStar 2016, the pre-eminent international packaging awards organised by the World Packaging Organisation (WPO).

The pack, for Valio’s lactose free dessert Valio Eila® cream pudding with fruit sauce, features a special release mechanism that makes it possible to serve the pudding and sauce on a plate within seconds. The consumer only needs to take off the sealed foil, turn the pot upside down and squeeze the bottom a few times. This makes the pot break in three places, and as the air enters, the pudding and the fruit sauce gently come out. The result is a decorative instant dessert on a plate and an enhanced consumer experience.

Juhana Pilkama, Packaging Development Manager at Valio Ltd. says “We are absolutely delighted that our pack from RPC Superfos has won a WorldStar Award 2016. It is the result of a dedicated team effort and it is a moment of accomplishment that everyone involved truly enjoys.”

The Valio Eila® cream pudding in the ready-to-serve dessert pack has been a huge success. According to Valio Ltd, sales have exceeded expectations from the beginning.

“It is crucial to be innovative and to serve our customers in the best possible way,” comments Per Sollenby, Sales Director Food, RPC Superfos Region Nordic. “The award shows that we are up to the challenge and that the RPC Superfos packaging solution is an example of international packaging excellence. We are all very proud.”

Judging for the WorldStars took place in October 2015 in Mumbai, India, when representatives from 17 packaging associations, all members of WPO, judged 293 packaging projects from 35 countries.

To win a WorldStar award, a pack must have won a national or multi-national competition, recognised by WPO. In autumn 2015, RPC Superfos’ bespoke dessert pack was honoured with a Scanstar in the Nordic packaging competition.

RPC Superfos designs, develops and manufactures innovative plastic packaging solutions. The company has more than 2,300 employees in +35 countries .
