Brazilian dairy companies Shefa and Líder Alimentos have chosen aseptic carton packaging solution provider SIG as their preferred partner.

As part of this partnership, SIG supplies advanced aseptic filling technology and packaging solutions for the two companies.

The company has already installed nine aseptic filling machines at production sites in São Paulo and Paraná. The systems have also entered operations.

Shefa CEO Roberto Adabo said: “We are very happy with our new partnership with SIG.

“The high flexibility and speed of the SIG filling machines, as well as low waste rates, were the main reasons for implementing this project with SIG.

“The partnership will help us to expand our product portfolio and to offer many more options to consumers.”

SIG’s filling technology allows the two Brazilian firms to present their range of beverages in aseptic carton packs. They can also offer their products in various formats and sizes.

The new packaging can be used in plain milk, flavoured dairy products and plant-based beverages and nectars.

Líder Alimentos director Nilson Sabino: “Already the results we’ve achieved in the first months of launch are very convincing.

“We now have a high level of efficiency at our production plant, while ensuring consumers enjoy the superior quality of our products.”

Earlier this month, Belgian company Olympia Dairy installed SIG’s CFA 812 filling machine to launch its products in the retail sector.
