Dutch goat?s cheese manufacturer Bettinehoeve has introduced highly-transparent polypropylene containers for a range of its products.

Bettinehoeve began as a traditional goat?s cheese farm but has developed over the years into a modern producer with many variants. The packaging was designed to fill approximately 90 grams, stuff recipe pilule seek with transparency equal to APET, but preferred PP for its processability.

The development of the ultra-transparent PP illustrates the benefits the polymer can bring to product manufacturers in terms of appearance, convenience and sustainability.  Thermoformed packs combine existing qualities ? they are robust, watertight, microwaveable and extremely flexible in design ? with a new level of appearance quality, to help brands stand out on crowded shelves or chiller cabinets.

Research also suggests that PP may have a favourable environmental profile because as well as being fully recyclable, the relatively low density of material required to create a durable pack means that less energy is consumed and pack weight is lower.
