In conjunction with a global food and beverage firm, Coveris Rigid Ukraine and Coveris Rigid Poland have developed a functional and attractive packaging solution for the instant noodle segment – DuoSmart®. DuoSmart® PP is a transparent cup of 95 mm diameter, which is safe and suitable for processed or dried food. It assures product separation when storing in different conditions and is robust when filled with hot water or microwaved. It also includes an attractive paper banderole. It is produced in two Coveris factories, in Kiev (Ukraine) and Siemianowice Śl. (Poland). According to market research firm Euromonitor, the instant noodle market is expected to grow annually by more than 30% over the next four years in particular for products packed in cups or bowls.
