Holland Colours announces the introduction of Thermostretch, a new answer to one of the biggest challenges facing PET packaging manufacturers: how to accelerate PET production while maintaining a high level of light barrier protection. PET packaging offers several significant advantages over traditional packaging, including freedom of design and improved recyclability. PET systems also support fast production speeds and simple and quick mold-change turnaround times. Result: one machine can produce many different sizes of bottles. This efficiency provides significant bottom-line savings.
Varun Beverages Ltd, part of RJ Corp group, one of the largest franchises for PepsiCo Inc. globally, has installed Sidel’s Aseptic Combi Predis™ in its newly established plant in Punjab, India. This pivotal project aims to expand PET bottling capacity and provide production flexibility for the private label milk brand Cream Bell as well as Pepsi’s Tropicana juice range. By choosing the new aseptic dry preform sterilisation technology, RJ Corp is commercialising its liquid dairy products (LDP) in PET for the first time in India.
