PT.Hokkan has installed a new dry aseptic line in Indonesia and in doing so has expanded its production capacity for the co-packing of non-carbonated healthy soft drinks in Indonesia’s growing beverage market.
The investment in the new Sidel machine follows the success of the first Sidel-made line installed at the company – a wet aseptic Combi line – with the two lines now working alongside each other to offer the company increased flexibility in production.
Indonesia is one of the best performing emerging markets with GDP growth in 2013 of 5.8%, Sidel said. The emergence of the country’s middle classes and increasing urbanisation are helping to shape the nation’s beverage consumption patterns.
“From our experience in Japan, we know that aseptic technology can achieve lightweight bottles, a flexible bottle design and long product shelf life. Aseptic technology offers us numerous opportunities for making quality products,” said Masaaki Ikezawa, President Director of PT.Hokkan Indonesia.
