Blow-molded polypropylene jars: A growing trend

New opportunities with 500 ml Thermic Ultra


Leading Dutch pickled vegetable processor Van der Kroon Food Products B.V. has become the first company to market with the recently launched 500ml multilayer Thermic Ultra jar from RPC Kutenholz.

The blow-molded polypropylene jars are being filled with gherkins, silver onions and piccalilli and sold under the Kroon brand in delicatessen stores. This latest addition to the range meets a strong trend in the Netherlands and other countries for the online ordering of products from supermarket websites. For such requirements, the new shatterproof jar provides enhanced consumer safety.

RPC Kutenholz has been supplying Van der Kroon with multilayer jars for many years, but until now the large sizes have been targeted for foodservice applications.

“We now want to transfer into the consumer side the same good experience we have enjoyed for many years with our jars in the catering sector,” explains Dennis van der Kroon, director of VDK, adding that he believes that the advantages of lighter weight, product safety, reclosability and high resistance to breakage will help to convince the retail market and end-users.
