RPCThe new 'Easy Wine Glass'
Multilayer sheet from RPC Cobelplast is being used to create the new ‘Easy Wine Glass’, a ready-to-drink solution from Cefour Wine & Beverage AB of Åhus, Sweden.
The Easy Wine Glass offers wines in pre-filled and sealed plastic glasses that are formed, filled and sealed using transparent PP/EVOH/PP sheet from RPC.
The design has an EVOH barrier layer to prevent oxygen ingress, which is said to preserve the freshness and quality of the wine for up to 10 months. RPC says the glasses are fully recyclable after use.
The wine glasses are designed for outdoor events where the use of glass is not suitable for safety considerations, as well to save time and ensure accurate portion control at catered events.
“Our Easy Wine Glass pre-filled concept considerably simplifies the handling of wine, eliminates spoilage and increases security when serving,” comments Mikael Bergholts, Cefour Wine & Beverage’s General Manager.
“It is essential that the wine glasses look good, as well as being safe and practical, in order to reflect the premium image of the wines, and the quality of the sheet supplied by RPC Cobelplast has helped to deliver this.”
Two designs are offered – the traditional wine glass and a stemless version, which is said to offer greater stability for aeroplane and train service.
