Packaging company SIG has expanded its lower-carbon, aluminium-free packaging portfolio with the release of Signature EVO.
The new range is said to offer the world’s first aluminium-free full barrier packaging materials for aseptic carton packs. The extension, which is already available for plain white milk, can be utilised for “oxygen-sensitive products”, such as fruit juices, nectars, flavoured milk and plant-based beverages.
SIG’s SVP innovation, Ali Kaylan, said: “By extending our Signature portfolio with Signature EVO – the world’s first aluminium-free packaging materials for aseptic cartons with full barrier protection – we are taking the next step in our aluminium-free journey and underlining our position as an industry leader in sustainable innovations”.
He continued: “We are delighted to give our customers additional opportunities to bring low-impact packaging solutions to more categories and more consumers around the world”.
According to SIG, Signature EVO packaging materials are expected to offer a similar carbon footprint reduction to SIG’s Combibloc EcoPlus, which was launched in 2010.
Signature EVO ensures that “oxygen-sensitive products” are protected over long periods of time without the need for refrigeration.
The new aluminium-free solution will initially be released in the CombiblocMini portion-sized format before being extended to other formats.
