Greencore wanted a premium packaging solution to showcase a range of cold and hot eat salads.
Stagione® was the ideal solution for the range of salads as it can be used for either chilled or hot food-to-go. The bases have wide apertures and anti-mist lids, which provide excellent product visibility in a chiller, and the bases are microwave safe; so customers can remove the lid and heat the contents if preferred.
Stagione® is manufactured from FSC® certified paperboard and the anti-mist lids are 100% rPET, representing sustainability requirements. The packaged salads also have a recyclable sleeve to display product details, created by Greencore, so the entire pack is recyclable.
It offers a stable, rectangular base that can be filled on a production line, ideal for multiple salad items to be packed and processed. The 500ml Stagione® pots partner with a tight-fitting lid, keeping contents secure during transport, display and on the move with the consumer.
Following a successful trial, the product is now being sold nationwide. It featured in one of the retail outlet’s advertising campaigns for summer lunches.
