Featuring an eight-layer structure, the Ecolean Air Aseptic lightweight package is suitable for displaying various products, including white milk, flavoured milk, drinking yoghurts, juice drinks, nectars and ice tea.

The company said that its Air Aseptic pouches are developed using Ecolean Calymer technology with extended light and oxygen barriers.

Besides displaying its Ecolean Air Aseptic 125ml, the company will also showcase its comprehensive range of packages for ambient and chilled distribution at the event.

In August, Ecolean announced that Pakistan-based dairy producer Fauji Foods was the first customer to use the new Ecolean Air Aseptic 125ml pouches for its tea creamer product.

Since 2015, Ecolean’s office in the Minato City district of central Tokyo has been covering its marketing activities in Japan and Oceania.
