Hygiene and freshness are key, as the SuperLock® pot from RPC Superfos − in combination with Korsini-SAF's autoclave-resistant oxygen-barrier labels − allows for post-filling sterilization up to 120° C for 80 mins. Pot and the lid are injection-molded and the pot comes with in-mold labelling and oxygen barrier protection. The lid is decorated with a standard IML, and the pots are ealed with aluminium foil for a long shelf life even under ambient temperatures. The SuperLock® pot has a very user-friendly twist-off screw-on lid. Another advantage is that the pot is suitable for microwave, so that a yummy meal can be effortlessly heated within minutes. Pot and lid are 100% recyclable, which is clearly indicated by an on-pack recycling label.
