Fruitapeel’s MD, Terry Haigh, said: “UK producers have traditionally had to go abroad to fill aseptic juices in gable top cartons. This increases costs, logistics and carbon footprints.
“The Elopak technology enables British-based production for the first time.”
An Elopak S-PS80 High Aseptic filling machine will be installed at Fruitapeel’s manufacturing site in Llantrisant, Wales during March. The machine will fill aseptic juices and smoothies in 1 litre, 750ml and 500ml Pure-Pak cartons.
