Colpac extends Stagione range

Packaging Solutions


Building on the success of its Stagione range, Colpac has added PE coated pots and extended use for its popular PP products to include ovenability.


Market demand has provided the opportunity for additional products, whilst maintaining robust manufacturing standards and testing protocols. Colpac prioritises quality in all its food safe packaging, and balances functionality with sustainability in product development. The Stagione range has a multitude of uses and is recyclable in line with UK and European guidelines.


The new Stagione PE coated pots offer an alternative specification for customers that do not require the reheating functionality of PP coated Stagione. Colpac’s considered design approach addresses the lightweighting of products. Stagione PE coated pots benefit from this, improving transport efficiency. In addition, the lighter material allows the company to offer these products to customers at a lower cost.


The Stagione PE coated pots are available in 500 ml, 750 ml, and 1000 ml, all of which are suitable for instant serve, hot hold, chilled, and delivered food. Their PE coating provides a grease resistant barrier to a multitude of dishes. For those requiring a higher specification barrier for oily and acidic food, PP coated Stagione pots are available.


Multiple lid options make these products extremely versatile. The paperboard PE lined lid is single skinned, adding to the lightweighting of this range. Self-venting tabs make the lid suitable for chilled, hot, and delivered food. The rPET lid has an anti mist coating for clarity in chilled display. Both lids fit all three sizes of PE coated Stagione, reducing SKU counts for distributors and retailers.


As food packaging functionality requirements continue to increase, the market is seeking a wider range of applications. Colpac has therefore expanded the uses of its PP coated Stagione products.


Stagione PP coated pots are now certified for oven reheating, as well as being suitable for microwave reheating and display in hot hold cabinets. The range has been certified for specific oven parameters and ovenability must be tested by customers with specific food types. The company offers its expertise to customers to support the testing of their food contents.
