Snow and ice may look wonderful however it can also be an obstacle to getting around. In mountainous Switzerland, where the winter season is long and cold, Schweizer Salinen AG officially safeguards mobility throughout the entire country with de-icing salt. It is Swiss made, as Switzerland is self-sufficient in salt production.
In line with sustainability strategy
This year, the de-icing salt TAUFIX comes in a new reusable packaging solution, a SuperCube pail incorporating PCR from Berry Superfos. It is in line with the business strategy of Schweizer Salinen as it contains 30% PCR content (post-consumer recycled).
Oliver Berger, Business Developer Taufix, at Schweizer Salinen explains:
“Pursuing a more sustainable way of doing business is an important aspect of our strategy. Our packaging choice is an inherent part of it, and we were intrigued by the idea of a container made with PCR material. It is spot on: we use less virgin plastic and the container’s sturdy quality meets our expectations.”
The rectangular shape is space efficient
Schweizer Salinen also appreciates the fact that the containers stack very well – filled or empty. Plus, the space efficient shape: the company prefers the rectangular SuperCube to a round container, because the rectangular shape allows for optimal use of pallet, storage and truck space. When each truck is optimally loaded, it allows for reduced truck kilometres.
The content of each SuperCube container is 12.5 kg; an ideal amount as it is enough for several weeks without being too heavy to be carried around. While spreading the salt, private and professional customers alike can see from the artwork decoration that the container is made with recycled material; a fact which Oliver Berger thinks is important for customer relations.
Colour reflection or sustainability?
Opting for the PCR solution means that the container is grey inside rather than white. Although the grey colour reflection gives the salt a slight hint of grey, Schweizer Salinen is perfectly happy with the new packaging solution:
“We briefly asked ourselves what was more important to us: a white colour for the inside of the container or a contribution to a better environment by using less virgin plastic material? It was not hard to come up with the right answer. We are pleased with the SuperCube container, and we hear that the same applies to end-users,” says Oliver Berger.
Airtight and all weather resistant
The SuperCube pail is perfectly airtight and all weather resistant, which means it easily withstands any condition outdoors, where retailers typically place the de-icing salt for sale. As well as ensuring that the salt inside stays dry, the SuperCube container is very well suited for transportation at low winter temperatures to remote alpine regions. No road should be left unsalted.

The circular economy is in full swing: material once considered as waste, is used to create products of higher value. Like in this case, where off cuts from a Berry Superfos facility in Denmark via a recycler become biological filters for water purification in aquaculture. That’s good for the environment and an example of responsible use of resources

Tub delivers lighter weight and improved performance
A new tub from Berry Superfos for one of the UK’s most popular spreadable butters has achieved a 9% weight reduction while delivering increased efficiency on the filling line and incorporating an attractive new look. The need for new tooling for the production of the 500g polypropylene tub for Arla Foods UK’s Anchor Spreadable brand resulted in the company re-evaluating the tub and the processes connected to it.
The switch from black to semi-clear plastic for a cake tub has had a significant impact on the pack’s sustainability profile. Thanks to the change, the 1080ml tub manufactured by Berry Superfos, for a range of cakes produced by Park Cakes for leading food retailer M&S can now be described as ‘widely recyclable’ in the UK.

A survey conducted by the Danish Technological Institute has shown that 14% of Danish household food waste stems from meal leftovers. Although these can be reheated, very often this is in a microwave oven, and the survey identified that many find the uneven heating of this process makes the food less savoury. In an attempt to alter this behaviour, RPC Superfos has contributed to the development of a new multifunctional plastic storage box which ensures a more even distribution of the microwave heat.
Sleek solution for healthy snack
The EasySnacking pot from RPC Superfos is providing a Norwegian dairy with an innovative and image-enhancing packaging solution. Organic dairy Rørosmeieriet was seeking a pack that would support the creative profile of the dairy. The company is now using the sleek EasySnacking pot for its Niste range of yoghurt with muesli topping, as well as for sour creams.
Top-quality PCR pails provide sustainable solutions
RPC Superfos has introduced a number of initiatives to further enhance its packaging solutions incorporating post-consumer recycled (PCR) polypropylene. The company has worked with recycled materials for over 10 years and today offers a range of PCR pails in many shapes and sizes.
Quality and functionality from ice-cream pack
The high quality, user-friendliness and eye-catching decoration of the sleek EasySnacking pot from RPC Superfos are key factors in its selection for a new range of ice-creams from Russian manufacturer Taice. Thanks to In-Mould Labelling, it is possible to show the texture of the ice cream in razor-sharp photo quality on the packaging. This is complemented by the striking purple colour of the lid that catches the consumer’s attention.
Advanced in-mould labelling from RPC Superfos has been a critical factor in the successful relaunch of a range of high-quality paints and primers from Bosnia and Herzegovina paint company BAUklar. The injection moulded SuperOval pail feature close-up drawings of tigers with striking details and appeal that form the essential visual communication of the pack. In-Mould Labelling (IML) makes it possible to reproduce even the finest details of the tiger design, so that end- users can almost feel that they can touch the whiskers.

RPC Superfos pot helps spread the word
The relaunch of a popular Slovenian chocolate spread in RPC Superfos’s SuperLock pot has created enhanced on-shelf appeal and contributed to good sales progress. The eye-catching artwork for the pots features a cute cartoon character, and thanks to the advanced in-mould labelling technique from RPC Superfos, the graphic detail is rendered to perfection.
The installation of new injection moulding machines and the reuse of heat from cooling are among the successful energy reduction initiatives at the RPC Superfos Randers facility in Denmark that have enabled the site to achieve ISO 50001:2011 certification ‒ an Energy Management Standard issued by independent authorities – for the second year in a row.
