SIG Combibloc is pleased to welcome another new customer in Brazil. Serigy, a renowned manufacturer of food and beverages, has opted for the filling technology from SIG Combibloc, and will now be filling coconut water and fruit nectars in combiblocMidi 1,000 ml carton packs with the screw cap combiSwift, using a filling machine CFA 812. The product range currently includes coconut water and grape, guava, caju fruit, pineapple, mango, orange, peach and passionfruit nectars.

Carlos Cabral, Market Director at Serigy: "In 2017, we'll be celebrating our company's 100th anniversary. In Brazil, but also throughout South and North America, Serigy is one of the leading brands for coconut milk and coconut flakes. Although this certainly means we can be described as a well-established company, we also aim at all times to have the current consumption trends of consumers in focus and to offer relevant products. We're confident that in the booming non-carbonated soft drinks market, coconut water and nectars in combiblocMidi carton packs, which are eye-catching and convenient, will really catch on with Brazilian consumers. For that reason, we've decided to incorporate carton packs into our product packaging range". Up to now, the company has offered juice concentrates and nectars only in PET packaging in 300 ml volumes.

Ricardo Rodriguez, Director and General Manager South America at SIG Combibloc: "We're proud to have won over Serigy with our carton packs, filling machines and service portfolio. The decisive factors for Serigy were above all the flexibility and, in association with that, the high performance of the SIG Combibloc filling machines".

Serigy has now brought a CFA 812 filling machine into operation. To begin with, the company is using this machine to fill its fruit nectars and coconut water in combiblocMidi 1,000 ml - up to 12,000 carton packs per hour are possible. However, the format flexibility of the filling machine also allows filling in combifitMidi without any difficulty. For all combibloc and combifit formats with the same base dimensions, switching between different filling volumes takes just a few minutes. A change of design can be implemented entirely without interrupting the production process, and with no wastage at all. All you need to do is switch the carton sleeves in the filling machine magazine. At the same time, the product flexibility of the SIG Combibloc machines offers the basis for filling a huge variety of foods. With the filling machines for non-carbonated soft drinks, for instance, low-viscosity food products and those with higher viscosity, such as smoothies or dessert sauces, can also be filled.

Total package of benefits
Carlos Cabral: "This total package of benefits made the decision to opt for a filling machine from SIG Combibloc an easy one. In the aseptic carton packs from SIG Combibloc, the high quality of our products is retained at its best. That's another aspect which is enormously important to us. Only a product that meets the consumer's quality standards has a chance of market success".
