In a departure from traditional packaging, which involves placing the scoop spoon inside the can of formula, this solution incorporates a plastic spoon securely sealed within the over-lid, with a transparent die-cut lid provided by Chadwicks. The over-lid and scoop are injection-molded by Tekplas, and all the components of the packaging including the aluminum can, over-lid, scoop, and die-cut lid, are fully recyclable.
“The issue with the existing packaging is that the scoop becomes submerged within the contents of the can. By partnering with Chadwicks, we have introduced a significantly more user-friendly and accessible solution,” explained Scott Laurence Tekplas’ general manager. “Consumers can simply open the over-lid, peel away the clear pre-cut lid, and have the scoop spoon readily available for use.”
John Harrison, technical sales manager for Australia/New Zealand at Chadwicks, added, “Packaging must combine functionality and user-friendliness to meet customer expectations, and the key to achieving this is through collaboration and innovation. While this application of a die-cut lid is a novel approach for both Chadwicks and Tekplas, it has already proven to be highly effective.”
