US-based beverage company Drink Simple has selected SIG’s fully recyclable combidome carton solution fully recyclable to launch its Original maple variety, DRINKmaple.
The Drink Simple’s new maple water, DRINKmaple, is now offered in SIG’s combidome carton, which is made from a composite material containing 75% paperboard, which is sourced from renewable raw wood materials.
DRINKmaple founder and CEO Kate Weiler said: “Our maple water provides naturally sweet hydration, in addition to nutritional benefits not found in other drinks.
“We set out to bring this delicious, better-for-you beverage option to consumers everywhere, and we strived to do so sustainably. This extends beyond our product processing, but also to our packaging.”
The beverage is said to offers a gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, paleo option that has half the sugar of coconut water and more manganese than a cup of kale.
The single-ingredient label product is claimed to be low calorie, non GMO, naturally alkaline 7.4 PH, and certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI).
SIG said that its combidome cartons are manufactured using only raw cardboard from trees in forests and which are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council or other controlled sources.
The firm said in a statement: “By filling their Original Maple Water variety in SIG’s combidome, the brand is furthering its sustainability endeavors as carton packaging maintains a high content of renewable raw wood material.
“This decision is visually displayed with the FSC label on each pack. Proverbially “sweetening the pot” even more, the carton and its closure are fully recyclable, as is with all packaging from SIG.”
Recently, Switzerland-based SIG has provided its microwavable Heat&Go carton to pack Achimae Soymilk drink of Seoul Dairy Cooperative (SDC), a food and dairy cooperative headquartered in Seoul, Korea.
Designed for on the go consumption of hot drinks, the Heat&Go packaging solution offers new market opportunities for beverages such as milk, juices, teas, dairy substitutes and innovative functional products, the firm noted.
