plastic news Supercube pail vineyard clipThe SuperCube pail from RPC Superfos (Taastrup, Denmark) is at the centre of a growing success story after being chosen to pack 100% biodegradable vineyard clips that ensure the vertical growth of vines. Since Compagnie des Agrafes à Vigne (Buxières-sur-Arce, France) selected the SuperCube for its vineyard clips, both the product and package have attracted rave reviews and the clips have enjoyed an uptick in sales, according to RPC Superfos.

The French company chose the 5.5-litre SuperCube because it wanted a convenient and reusable plastic pail to replace the plastic bags in cardboard boxes that were typically used. The innovative starch-based clips attach the vines to a wire trellis to promote vertical growth.
