Tri-Star Packaging has developed a new deli pot, suitable for the food-to-go market.

The compact Deli Pot Topper allows food retailers and manufacturers to use both the pot and lid as containers, so that ingredients or products can be kept separate and fresh.

The topper has been manufactured in clear recycled PET, containing a minimum of 50% post-consumer waste, and is available to fit five different sizes of pot, from 230ml to 470ml, for complete flexibility and portion control.

In addition, its recessed lid panel ensures that it can be stacked on shelves securely.

Kevin Curran, managing director of Tri-Star, said: "The great advantage of the fantastic Deli Pot Topper is that it ensures that, at the point of consumption, the customer is eating the product when it’s in peak condition. As well as offering great functionality and performance, the new Deli Pot Topper, with its superb environmental credentials, is a real step forward in terms of recycled food-grade packaging."
