Luxury pudding maker Pots & Co has chosen Aegg Creative Packaging to produce its bespoke engraved 75ml injection moulded PS plastic pots for the launch of its new airline contract.
The Pots & Co desserts are provided on flights in Aegg’s crystal PS embossed clear lidded airline pots, including salted caramel and malted milk chocolate. The puddings, in Aegg pots, are also available on some American Air Lines.
Aegg collaborated closely with Pots & Co for several months to ensure the process as well as packaging solution worked seamlessly before going live. For example, the clip-on lid, embossed with the Pots & Co logo, is automated as part of the overall pots production line to provide efficiencies, whilst keeping the level of quality high. As well as featuring on the lid, the Pots & Co logo is also embossed on the pot, ensuring that the packaging matches the luxury element of the product.
Pots & Co founder and CEO, Julian Dyer, said “We are delighted to be working with Aegg. We have found them to be very flexible and proactive. They have provided ideal solutions through their understanding of the whole process as well as their great working relationships with machine manufacturers. They also ‘get’ our brand and our joint no-compromise on quality has resulted in a fantastic end product.”
Managing Director of Aegg, Jamie Gorman, said “Pots & Co is a quality brand and we’re proud they’ve partnered with Aegg to introduce their luxury desserts to the in-flight market. We have made a sizeable investment in top quality tooling for the pot and lid moulds, as well as introducing the latest in filling and packaging automation. This means that we are able to provide efficiencies on the production line, whilst sticking to the ‘no compromise’ attitude to quality, adopted by both Pots & Co and Aegg. ”
Pots & Co, the Acton-based luxury pudding maker which was launched in 2008 as a rival to Gϋ, makes the most expensive desserts on supermarket shelves. Its team of chefs, who have worked at some amazing restaurants (including Bath Priory, and The Square), are fanatical about the best ingredients, ethically sourced, and British grown or manufactured where possible.
