Dairy firm Stapleton has switched from using aluminium to pre-cut plastic lids across its entire range of yogurts to meet changing supermarket requirements.

Clondalkin Group company Chadwicks will produce 17 different lid designs across four product ranges, as well as four designs for Stapleton's Dutch and Belgian product ranges.

“Until recently, when a customer approached us requesting polyester lids, we’d always used aluminium lids on our products,”​ says Stapleton’s marketing and communications manager Beth Duncan. Following the results of successful trials with Chadwicks, Stapleton decided to move all its lids over to polyester.

“The service we’ve received from Chadwicks has been outstanding,”​ she adds. “They have helped with modifications to our existing equipment, given us material advice on our pots, run test trials and advised on designs and colour to make the transition as seamless as possible.”
