France's ready-made meal producer William Saurin has launched a new line of meat spreads called Délice Confit for its affiliated Paul Prédault brand in easy-open, easy-to-dispense-from cans. Provided by Crown Food Europe, an affiliate of Crown Holdings, Inc. (www.crowncork.com) , the gold cans are sleeved in a custom, decorative paperboard carrier and each contains 125-g of pâté and meat spreads in chicken, duck and pork-liver flavors.
The steel cans maximize consumer convenience with their advantages. Crown developed the cans with a wide-mouth end and "necked-out" shape that's suitable for terrines, pâtés, rillettes, tuna slices and other similar products. The cans also feature Crown's Eole-III™ easy-open ends in a new 73-mm size. This diameter enables compatibility for the first time between a 125-g can and easy-open technologies, which include Eole™ ends and PeelSeam™ peelable lids, according to Crown.
The Delice Confit cans join those for Saurin's Salades Gourmandes meat salads, which were also developed by Crown and won a DuPont Diamond Award (see PD, Sept. 2005, p. 28). The new spreads debuted in September throughout France.
