SIG launches new combistyle food packaging at Gulfood
SIG Combibloc Obeikan, one of the world’s leading systems and solutions provider for aseptic packaging and filling machines for food and beverages, has launched combistyle carton pack at Gulfood.
Featuring a distinctively shaped corner to ensure on-shelf differentiation, combistyle offers instant consumer appeal, added functionality and more convenience.
In the increasingly competitive retail environment, combistyle brings a fresh and distinctive look to often crowded drink aisles – helping beverage manufacturers stand out while making it easier for consumers to find what they need. A stylish corner panel provides a comfortable and safe grip, while allowing brand owners to effectively communicate key messages with eye-catching designs.
Abdelghany Eladib, chief operating officer, SIG CBOB, said: “We are very excited to be launching globally our unique combistyle carton pack during the Gulfood manufacturing exhibition. We continue to innovate with new products to address consumers’ ever-changing needs.”
“combistyle offers our customers a future packaging concept that will instantly intrigue busy shoppers to find out more,” said Heike Klein, global product manager at SIG. “The shaped corner not only stands out on the shelf, but also offers exciting branding opportunities to effectively communicate your brand image and key messages.”
SIG’s customers will benefit from the low investment needed to upgrade to combistyle on existing CFA810 and CF812 filling machines, which also can fill combiblocMidi and combifitMidi, the original packs for these lines. This offers manufacturers the best shape flexibility for different product types and the ability to adapt to changing market demands, as three carton formats can be filled on a single line.
“As only limited investment is needed to upgrade existing filling machines, combistyle provides the perfect opportunity for beverage manufacturers to utilize and enhance existing equipment,” said Klein. “Upgrading will not only maintain efficiency on the original line, but also help to bring new and exciting beverages to market in a faster time period.”
The combistyle carton pack’s distinctively shaped corner provides a more comfortable and safer grip. In addition, combistyle features SIG’s new combiMaxx closure, which is fully resealable and leak-proof, allows for easier opening and better pouring, and offers an eco-friendly design. combistyle is available in a 1 liter format and a 500ml size will be added soon.
combistyle exemplifies SIG’s commitment to deliver innovative, differentiated product and packaging solutions that help businesses satisfy ever-changing needs.
