Switzerland-headquartered packaging solutions provider SIG has announced the launch of the uniquely different on-the-go carton bottle SIG DomeMini – a small-size carton pack that offers the convenience of a plastic bottle and the sustainability benefits of a carton pack.
Designed to captivate attention, SIG DomeMini encourages consumers to rethink their packaging choices, especially when it comes to sustainability. Beverage manufacturers also have the opportunity to choose a solution that puts significantly less plastic on the market and caters to the growing ‘paperization’ trend, the company said.
Christoph Wegener, CMO at SIG: “The market for on-the-go beverages continues to grow and offers immense potential. By combining convenience with sustainability, SIG DomeMini sets the stage and offers a new drinking experience for consumers, who can now enjoy their favorite drink on the move while helping to reduce plastic waste.”
Designed for recycling, SIG DomeMini is mainly made from FSC-certified paperboard and produced using 100% renewable electricity. With the high share of forest-based renewable material as well as a sophisticated resource-efficient and space-saving design, SIG DomeMini comes with a number of environmental benefits compared to alternative packaging options like plastic bottles.
SIG says the DomeMini offers excellent ergonomic benefits to various consumers, such as travellers and commuters. The centrally positioned SIG DomeMiniCap is perfect for drinking just like from a bottle. It is easy to open and reclose. This ensures safe storage in bags, ready to drink from whenever needed.
The SIG DomeMini 12 Aseptic filling machine is capable of aseptically filling 12,000 packages per hour – in a total of seven volume sizes from 180 to 350 ml on one and the same machine with volume change in just 15 minutes. This maximizes efficiency and flexibility, providing an excellent return on investment for beverage manufacturers.
The launch of the small size SIG DomeMini carton bottle is part of SIG’s journey to create packaging for better. The first market launch of SIG DomeMini is in China, with expansion to other countries on the way.
Christoph Wegener: “Our new SIG DomeMini on-the-go premium pack perfectly complements our already successful family-size SIG Dome aseptic carton bottle. We can now offer food & beverage companies a bottle-shaped carton product family for the on-the-go and at-home occasion that does not compromise on convenience and delivers superior sustainability performance. The eye-catching design of the SIG Dome family really stands out on shelf too, clearly differentiating it from other packaging types.”
