The UniPak plastic pails from Berry Superfos that can be reused in the home after their initial purpose are providing the ideal packaging solution for a new range of salty snacks and dried fruits from Danish bakery, snacks and confectionery supplier Nordthy.
For this new project, the company, which sells snacks, nuts, biscuits, cakes and confectioneries to supermarkets and other outlets all over the Nordics and Germany, needed really eye-catching packaging and turned to Berry Superfos for help. Head of marketing at Nordthy, Jesper Lukassen explains: “We have worked with Berry Superfos for several years, so continuing this successful collaboration was the obvious choice for us. We had some very specific demands for the new pails when it came to design, including In-Mould Labelling and, most importantly, the possibility for consumers to repurpose the pails at home. All of these demands were met successfully by Berry Superfos.”
Nordthy aims to phase out packaging labels to become more compliant with today’s need for waste separation, with different types of materials going into different waste streams. Thanks to Berry Superfos’s In-Mould-Labelling technique, the logo and text are inserted straight onto the surface of the new pails, making labels redundant. According to Lukassen, this signals an innovative edge to consumers.
In addition, Nordthy wanted to present the new snacks in an easily recognisable manner with eye-catching colours. Berry Superfos was able to deliver non-standard colours from bright yellow to green, with the same colours adorning each pail from the handle to the base.
This is not the first time Nordthy is offering consumers snacks in a pail suitable for reuse at home. Jesper Lukassen says: “Even after the snacks have been eaten, the UniPak pails are still of value to consumers with great potential for multiple uses at home, such as food storage containers or even for holding nails and screws. When a pail is as good as this one, many consumers do not throw it in the trash; they clean it and use it again for other purposes. All in all, this packaging solution really appeals to consumers and this adds value to our products which is a very important aspect.”
