SIG extended its combibloc ECOPLUS aluminum-free packaging material to the fast-growing combiblocMidi family format. Particularly applicable to the dairy industry, the fast-growing square-ish pack taps into demand for more sustainable packaging. Designed to give dairy companies more sustainable options for aseptic cartons, the square-ish cartons are designed to help companies differentiate their dairy products and shape the trend for innovation, the company says. Launched in 2010, combibloc ECOPLUS leads the industry as the first and only aluminum-free packaging material for aseptic carton packs. Additionally, it is made from 82% renewable paper board. The ultra-thin polymer layers are designed to contain and protect long-life milk products. The new sustainable pack offers on-shelf appeal and stand-out environmental credentials, and is central to the company’s commitment to partner with customers and go Way Beyond Good for people and the planet.
