This pot has an innovative design which has been patented. Its pear-drop plan distinguishes it from standard round plan pots yet enables it to fit within the same 'design envelope' allowing it to pass through existing filling lines and distribution systems with no modification or effect. It has strengthening ribbs around the top to prevent it from distorting when hot, a vent that allows it to be micro-waved with its lid on, and an easy to use tamper tab, protected by the rim. The tear drop shape creates a natural pouring point. It was commissioned by Tesco for their 'Finest' range' and is made by RPC Superflos. This pot was first manufactured in 2015, this example is from 2018.
