The combination of a multilayer thermoformed pot from RPC Bebo Deventer with HPP (High Pressure Processing) treatment is enabling a new and successful Dutch food company to offer a range of preservative-free dips with an extended ambient shelf life.

Lazy Foods, based in Ridderkerk, is an up-and-coming business specialising in the production of 100% fresh guacamole, hummus and tomato salsa, all of which use only natural ingredients and are manufactured without any preservatives.  

In order to give the products a shelf life of at least 30/40 days, they are being filled in the RO 115 cup from RPC Bebo, which features a multilayer polypropylene structure to prevent oxygen ingress.

In addition, the cups undergo HPP treatment, whereby they are placed in a container and put under 6,000 bar water pressure.  This provides a natural preservation process that eliminates harmful bacteria and mould.

The RPC cups are supplied in three sizes – 175cc, 250cc and 500cc – and sealed with a specially-developed multilayer polypropylene foil to maintain product freshness.  An attractive and colourful outer sleeve ensures effective branding and on-shelf appeal.

Lazy Foods’ products are stocked in many retail and foodservice outlets and the company is currently developing new additions to the range for cinemas in the Netherlands.
