Preserved Products at Carrefour France, a major French retail chain, has launched one of the first genuine alternatives to the tin can for preserved vegetables. The breakthrough package is an innovative multilayer polypropylene pack from RPC Bebo UK Corby.

Each pack consists of two or four individual portions in lightweight sealed trays. The transparent pack is designed for ease of filling and maintains its shape during sterilization. It is sealed with a peelable transparent multilayer film from LPF Flexible Packaging. Its rectangular form makes the pack easy to store, taking up to one third less space than the equivalent can.

The package is used for the Conserves Pratiques line of vegetables, which includes beans, peas and mixed vegetables. The line of vegetables has a shelf life of up to two years. The package’s individually separable compartments can easily be reheated in the microwave.

“Conserves Pratiques represents a real breakthrough in providing a vegetable concept that meets the convenience requirements of today’s consumer,” said Luc Fevrier, Category Manager, Preserved Products.
