Colpac has expanded its selection of recyclable multi-food pots, adding a natural kraft 950ml pot to complete its UK manufactured range.

The new 950ml pot has proven to be a popular size, with Colpac’s customers buying printed bespoke pots. The company has launched a kraft pot, with a separate rPET lid, in the new size as part of its stock range so it can be offered as an off-the-shelf solution to a wider customer base.

The existing range includes 470ml, 550ml, 700ml, and 1300ml pots. The new 950ml bridges the gap between Colpac’s larger sizes, suiting higher value lunches to-go and meal offerings for later day parts. Bolstering Colpac’s range, it also offers flexibility to foodservice operators and retailers to package a more substantial meal with added value perception, without the need to jump to a 1300ml pot.

Colpac brought the manufacturing of its multi-food pots to the UK in 2022, which are produced at its factory in Flitwick, Bedfordshire. It has since developed custom food packaging for retailers, supplying 950ml pots from its food safe, BRCGS AA+ certified factory. The company also produces 950ml bespoke printed pots for a customer based in Europe who favours Colpac’s production location to provide continuity of supply and a reduced lead time to its retail stores in Belgium.

Colpac’s multi-food pots are suitable for a multitude of dishes and are particularly ideal for salads. The grease resistant interior coating means the pots can cope with oily dressings whilst maintaining their structural integrity. The effectiveness of the PE coated pots has been tested even further through their use within a successful launch of a coleslaw range for a large food producer.

The multi-food pots have a wide aperture for excellent product visibility, showcasing the dishes within. The pots can be fitted with rPET, anti-mist lids, maintaining clarity in chilled display. They can also be heat sealed to provide additional shelf-life beyond that of a lidded option, and with effective tamper proofing.

“Our continued, successful production of 950ml multi-food pots for key customers helped us to identify the opportunity for this size to be added to our stocked range. We can now give our customers even more choice and support their menu development across a broader range of sizes.”

Kate Berry, Head of Marketing and Product

Along with the rest of the range, the multi-food pots are manufactured from FSC® certified paperboard, proving sustainable sourcing, and can be recycled after use as they contain less than 10% plastic. The lids are also recyclable and are made with 100% recycled PET.

Colpac’s new 950ml size is available to order from May 2024.
