Description

This injection moulded PET spherical jar is based on the shape of the Malteser (R) sweet, at the time it was launched there were no other spherical packaged products on the market. The use of PET, as well as being wholly recyclable, also enhanced clarity. PET also provides a barrier to gas and moisture without the effect of taint and also made the container heat resistant, essential when applying the PVC shrink wrap sleeve. Due to the complexity of the design, gravure reverse printing was used incorporating eight colours using specially developed high opacity inks. The amount of predistortion work used on the illustrations in the flat is tremendous and when shrunk onto the jar the full impact of the aesthetic can be seen. The jar was a winner at the packaging industry’s Oscars, the Starpack awards in 2003. It won both the Gold awards for Best Consumer Packaging and Best Label.
