Title: A PACKAGE DESIGNED TO REDUCE THE RISK OF SPILLAGE
Abstract:
This inventive concept relates to a package for a liquid food product, the package comprising a container having a default shape. The container is designed to change its shape as a result of a difference between an external pressure and an internal pressure, and to strive towards returning to the default shape. The package further comprises a hollow body (104) attached to the container. The hollow body covers a weakened portion (644, 744) of the container. The hollow body comprises a cutting member (430) arranged at the weakened portion, (644, 744) such that a hole in the container can be made with the cutting member and liquid held in the container can be transferred out from the container through said hole into the hollow body. Further, it is presented related methods for producing a package comprising a container and a hollow body, and for producing a hollow body arranged to be attached to a container.
