SIG unveils world’s first full-barrier aluminum-free aseptic carton solutions
SIG launches Signature Evo, the world’s first aluminum-free full barrier packaging materials for aseptic carton packs. Signature Evo extends SIG’s lower-carbon aluminum-free packaging materials – already available for plain white milk – for wider use with oxygen-sensitive products such as fruit juices, nectars, flavoured milk, or plant-based beverages.
“By extending our Signature portfolio, we are taking the next step in our aluminum-free journey and underlining our position as an industry leader in sustainable innovations,” said Ali Kaylan, SVP Innovation at SIG. “We are delighted to give our customers additional opportunities to bring low-impact packaging solutions to more categories and more consumers around the world. Sustainable innovations like this are central to SIG’s commitment to partner with customers and go way beyond good for people and the planet.”
With barrier properties comparable to standard aseptic cartons that include an aluminum foil barrier layer, Signature Evo packaging materials help ensure that even oxygen-sensitive products are protected over long periods of time without the need for refrigeration. This enables customers to bring the environmental benefits to many more food and beverage categories.
