Parmentine has partnered with Greiner Packaging to launch an on-the-go potato snack in France.

The cup of pre-washed potatoes come in a cardboard-plastic ‘K3’ cup and can be heated in the microwave. It comes with a sauce, in a variety of flavours, and a fork in the lid.

Kenneth Boldog, sales director, K Europe, Greiner Packaging, told BakeryandSnacks, the cups come with a cardboard wrap that reduces the heat from contact with the hot potatoes and allows consumption straight from the cup.

There is also a ‘window’ in the wrap so that consumers can see the product before buying it.

The cardboard and plastic combination makes our K3 cups very popular​,” said Boldog.

The cups not only look and feel good, they appeal to environmentally conscious consumers because of the reduced use of plastic​.”
