Global Closure Systems (GCS) has developed a new closure solution for Nestlé’s Coffee-mate 2GO creamer dispenser.
The new silicone valve sub-assembly closure was designed and manufactured by Zeller Plastik at GCS’ production plant in Libertyville, Illinois, US.
Nestle US technical packaging group manager Cyrille Durand said: "Zeller Plastik’s collaboration on the cap development and execution for Coffee-mate 2GO helped us develop the perfect solution for the loyal Coffee-mate consumer who needs a portable creamer.
"The market for enjoying coffee outside of the home continues to grow and developing Coffee-mate in a practical, ready-to-go offering meets the lifestyle of today’s consumer."
The 90ml portable Coffee-mate 2GO creamer does not require refrigeration, allowing consumers to transform their ordinary cup of coffee anytime.
The closure’s red glossy finish enables the creamers to stand-out on shelf, while its full body sleeve provides tamper evidence.
GCS Americas sales and marketing director Peter Goshorn said: "The silicone valve has been specifically designed to perfectly match the product formulation."
GCS employs nearly 3,500 people across its 21 production plants in 13 countries across the world.
The company generated €591m in consolidated revenues last year. It offers more than 2,700 designs of standard and custom closures and dispensing systems for the global beverage, food, healthcare, household and industry, personal care, and wine and spirits markets.
