Bringing innovative carton bottle-based beverages to the UK, SIG has partnered with contract packing solutions specialist Framptons to install a new generation combidome filler. The project makes Framptons owners of the first combidome filler in the UK.
Over the last decade Framptons has positioned itself as a specialist in the production of innovative plant-based drinks, smoothies, juices and dairy drinks.
SIG’s combidome combines the features of a carton and bottle with convenient handling for consumers and easy opening and pouring from the single action domeTwist screw cap. The lightweight carton has an excellent environmental footprint, as it is fully recyclable and largely made from FSC™-certified paperboard.
Will Martin, Business Development Director and Joint Owner at Framptons said: “I carried out a comprehensive review of available carton options looking for a format which would align with our business strategy to bring both innovation and breadth of choice to our customers. As soon as I saw combidome it immediately presented a stand-out innovation opportunity. Both the aesthetics and practical function to me provided a step change for the beverage carton – the opening and pouring experience coupled with the flexible SIG system to provide the size range options is unrivalled.”
Russ Lisle, SIG UK & Ireland Key Account Manager for Framptons, adds: “During the lifespan of this project we’ve built a great relationship with Framptons, who understand the benefits of using SIG technology for their UHT filling requirements. We’re positively looking forward to working with the Framptons team to introduce combidome into the UK and Ireland markets.”
