RPC Bebo UK has launched a range of PP and PET packs that are suitable for a wide variety of products. A 60 mm PP pot, which is available in 45 ml, 60 ml and 75 ml sizes, is said to be ideal for dips, salads, fruit pieces and snack meals. A four-compartment snap PP tray that can be easily separated for individual servings can be used for both food and non-food applications.

RPC said both packages can be used for direct food contact, hot filling and high-temperature processes such as sterilisation and pasteurisation. Special grades are also available for microwave cooking and reheating.
