Sausage adds convenience

German meat processor Stockmeyer packs sausage into multilayer tubs.

Pw 8413 Web Meat

The containers, thermoformed by RPC Bebo Plastik (www.rpc-beboplastik.de) of polypropylene with ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) providing the oxygen barrier, were designed by Stockmeyer as a replacement for the more traditional method of packing the meat in sausage skins.

The new packs offer a greater level of convenience for consumers, in particular providing giving easier access to and serving of the product, the ability to reseal the pack between uses, and better storage.

The rounded design creates a more modern image for the products on shelf. Injection-molded lids are color coordinated for the various meats in the range and colorful labels help to maximize brand identity.

RPC Bebo was selected for the project for its acknowledged experience in barrier packaging, according to Stockmeyer.

"We wanted a more convenient packaging format but it was also vital that product quality was not compromised in any way," explains Mr Klünder from Stockmeyer marketing. "With RPC Bebo, we have found the ideal packaging partner who offered valuable assistance in the development process and was able to meet all the criteria for our new pack."
