Consisting of interchangeable pots, lids and inserts, the award-winning Tri-PotTM proves to be a collaborative triumph for packaging manufacturer Coveris Rigid UK and UK distributor Tri-Star Packaging.

To meet the increasing demands of the healthy eating food-to-go market, Coveris Rigid UK and UK distributor Tri-Star developed a range of contemporary dessert pots based around current food and packaging trends.

The result of the joint development is a thermoformed dessert pot range in 440ml, 300ml and 170ml made from rPET with a flat lid fitting all three pots. In addition, Coveris as a Group is offering a dome lid and a small insert pot which can be combined with the new range. The insert tray is perfect for keeping the secondary ingredients separate from the main ingredient, so all stay fresh right up to the time of consumption.

The end result is a dessert pot range with three pots, two lids and one insert, providing endless combinations for the perfect food presentation.

The Tri-PotTM range was entered into the Café Life Awards, which followed the Lunch Exhibition in London in September 2014. The judges agreed that Tri-PotTM was fresh and modern and brought innovation to the market to help generate new menu ideas for the end consumer. The Tri-PotTM range was named the winner of The New Café Product Award 2014.

Jim Harris, Key Account Manager – Southern England and Ireland at Coveris, said, “This is a fantastic example where both customer and supplier share the same enthusiasm for innovation. By being creative and working together, we developed an exciting addition to food service packaging.”
