Elopak has provided one litre and 500ml Pure-Pak Classic cartons for Malta Dairy Products’ (MDP) Benna fresh milk brand products.
Elopak and MDP have worked together to design cartons with a closure through using filling machine technology.
The new cartons features an advanced look, updated Benna logo and ‘Farmer Owned – Quality Guarantee’ badge.
Pure-Pak Classic cartons with closure are used to pack MDP’s fresh skimmed milk, fresh milk 2.5%, fresh whole milk, fresh lactose free milk and fresh milkshakes such as Coconut Milkshake in 500ml cartons.
Elopak North Africa and Malta market unit manager Lionel Ploton said: “This is the first carton closure for fresh milk in Malta.
“As part of its investment programme the dairy wanted to update its packaging for the consumer and the environment. We provided options to increase the quality of the carton including a new board with a better light barrier to protect the milk’s taste and freshness quality.”
Malta Dairy products chief operating officer Martin Grech said: “The introduction of a closure for the first time on our packaging elevates the convenience of our products whilst retaining the benefits of a fresh product.
