German food manufacturer Ernst Nowka GmbH & Co. KG, based in Uelzen, is using a 1062 ml Thermic Ultra foodservice jar from RPC Kutenholz, to match its successful introduction of a 2.4 litre variant .
The containers are known at Nowka under the name “NowoCup“ and are filled with various sweet-sour vegetable specialities, such as gherkins and squashes, and sold to end consumers, the gastronomy trade and industry. The products are marketed world-wide, with the main export countries being Canada, Russia, Holland, Belgium, Denmark and Spain.
An induction guarantees a tamper-proof seal which, together with the PP/EVOH/PP barrier construction of the extrusion blow moulded container, protects the product against oxygen from the outside.
Both containers have a wide 100 mm opening through which products can easily be served. Nowka also benefits from RPC Kutenholz’s use of a special, high transparency material which allows a clear view of the contents and has the same optical qualities as glass.
“We are very optimistic about the sales figures of the ‘NowoCups’,” comments Ernst-Dieter Nowka, Managing Director of Nowka. “Demand is constantly growing. Our customers are increasingly aware that plastic packaging is the future!”
