Ferrara Candy Company, owners of the classic American candy NERDS, are known for its dual-compartment box that allows consumers to mix flavors. They have now launched a new product, called NERDS Twist & Mix, with the help of Missouri-based rigid packaging manufacturer TricorBraun. TricorBraun designed a circular-shaped, five-compartment pack for consumers to mix and match their perfect combination of NERDS Candy flavors, including Strawberry, Orange, Watermelon, Cherry, and Lemonade. The packaging comprises a polypropylene base and lid design for durability while using a clarifier to make it possible for the consumers to see the flavours. Both the lid and base are recyclable. The product launch has been much better than anticipated. Consumers have been posting about their experiences across social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok, excited to share their delight in mixing unique combinations of flavors, including up to all five at once.

Hong Kong-based Choose Planet A has announced the launch of The Good Cup, a patented paper coffee cup that features an integrated lid. The Good Cup was developed to meet consumer requirements for more sustainable options while also cutting costs for producers. The Good Cup is designed to be manufactured on the same machines that produce traditional paper cups. It is made from 100% certified home compostable paper and it is free from the commonly used PE (polyethylene) coating. The company says that usually more sustainable options can be two to three times more expensive than traditional options. In contrast, The Good Cup can offer savings, thanks to its integral lid. This enables a 40% reduction in storage space, transportation volume and carbon footprint as compared to the classic coffee cup, which in turn, saves companies money.
