Carton packaging and filling machines supplier SIG Combibloc has announced the launch of its new combiblocXSlim, a small-format carton pack that comes in a total of seven volumes from 80 to 180ml.
SIG Combibloc global product management head Ralf Mosbacher said the company works to identify market trends at an early stage, which applies especially to developments in fast-growing regions such as Asia and the Middle East.
"Particularly in these markets, demand is growing in the food and beverage industry for small-size carton packs with volumes of 100 ml and below", Mosbacher said.
The new combiblocXSlim, which has a base area of 47mm x 32.5mm comes in different volumes, all of which can be filled on the same SIG Combibloc filling machine.
According to the company, which is part of the New Zealand-based Rank Group, the CFA 1224-36 filling machine for combiblocXSlim is based on the company’s filling machine technology that can fill up to 24,000 carton packs per hour.
"Especially with the very small volumes of combiblocXSlim food companies could differentiate their products and offer new premium product concepts that come as one shot drinks".
