SATA has changed the look of the RPS cup packaging to update and tie it in with the rest of SATA's branding. The package sizes were changed so the RPS 0.6L and RPS 0.9L packages are now the same dimensions as well as the 0.3L Standard 100 count box.
The RPS 0.3L minijet and RPS 0.3L Standard 40 count packages set side by side are the same size as the larger cup packages providing ease and uniformity when stacking and shipping logistics.
