Polish food company Maspex Wadowice Group has become the first company to adopt SIG’s domeTwist closure with tethered cap (domeTwist TC) for the carton bottle combidome.

The company has launched its Tymbark Vega juice ranges in combidome bottles with the domeTwist TC.

The closure can be pressed down to fix it in a preferred position, which allows consumers to drink or pour from the pack without the cap getting in the way or having to hold it.

The pack can be closed as usual by lifting the cap slightly before closing it.

SIG said the domeTwist closure with tethered cap is easy to use and is compatible with SIG’s existing filling lines and closure applicators.

The solution is designed to deliver planning and investment security for beverage producers in Europe.

SIG Nordics, Poland & Ukraine senior marketing manager Karina Ostatek said: “Maspex is committed to continuously improving their production technologies and product ranges to find optimal and environmentally conscious solutions.

“Being the first worldwide to use SIG’s domeTwist with tethered cap on the Tymbark juice ranges in the unique combidome carton bottle, means they are offering increasingly environmentally aware consumers the opportunity to play their part in minimising plastic waste leakage into the environment.”

The adoption of SIG’s domeTwist closure with tethered cap for combidome is Maspex’s latest effort to improve its sustainability.

Besides the domeTwist closure, SIG offers combiSwift and combiMaxx closures with tethered caps, which are intended for SIG’s family-size carton packs.

Based in Neuhausen, Switzerland, SIG provides aseptic cartons, bags-in-boxes and spouted pouches for companies in more than 100 countries.

The company produced 48 billion packs and generated €2.7bn ($2.9bn) in revenue in 2021.

In November last year, German dairy company Landliebe Molkereiprodukte introduced SIG’s combiSwift closures with tethered caps for its products.
