Independent non-profit organization Colalife working with Coca-Cola has approached Packaging Automation (PA) for a solution to package their new AidPod concept.
The AidPod is a wedge-shaped container that fits between the necks of the bottles in a crate of Coca-Cola and makes use of unused space to transport medicines, such as oral rehydration salts, and other social products like micro-nutrients.
Branding and design agency working PI Global working with Colalife contacted PA to provide a solution to heat seal the AidPod and explained that they needed a machine that was suitable to export to Zambia.
The table top, manually operated PA217, which has been selected as the solution, is simple to use and robust.
Colalife business development director Jane Berry said, "There was obviously a great willingness to work with us to understand and fulfil our needs in a very cost effective way; we got a lot of attention to understand our needs and recommend the specification."
