Swiss packaging firm SIG Combibloc has been selected by Canadian food manufacturer Lassonde to provide recloseable carton packs for its new Oasis NutriSolution Hydra+ product range.

Lassonde’s Hydra+ is a range of ready-to-drink, thickened beverages based on ‘Oasis’ fruit juices, water or milk.

Equipped with the combiSwift screw cap, SIG Combibloc’s aseptic carton packs are suitable for people who face difficulty while swallowing, a condition known as dysphagia.

Lassonde communications vice-president Stefano Bertolli said: "Our ‘Oasis NutriSolution’ product range is for people who have special requirements for their food in terms of formulation and handling.

"Especially for ‘Oasis NutriSolution Hydra+’ – our products that address the needs of people with difficulty swallowing – we were looking for a packaging solution that would safeguard the quality of these special-purpose products, and could fit conveniently into the everyday routine of users and nursing staff.

"The aseptic filling technology and carton packs with the recloseable screw cap from SIG Combibloc meet all our demands."

"A screw cap was an indispensable requirement. The aseptic filling technology and carton packs with the recloseable screw cap from SIG Combibloc meet all our demands.

"They guarantee us the added value that we want to pass on to consumers in respect of the packaging as well."

In 2013, Canton’s fondue broths were moved from metal cans to aseptic carton packs developed by SIG Combibloc.

SIG Combibloc noted that the aseptic cartons have recently become more popular among US and Canadian consumers.

Made of 75% wood, the aseptic packs are lightweight, easy to use and have a reduced environmental footprint compared to other food and beverage packaging.
