Portuguese dairy brand Terra Alegre has expanded its partnership with aseptic carton supplier SIG by introducing tethered SIG MaxxCap Linked on SIG’s carton packs.

Terra Alegre, a dairy factory of the Jerónimo Martins Group, offers whole milk, semi-skimmed milk, and skimmed milk packaged in SIG SlimlineBloc carton packs.

The tethered cap of SIG MaxxCap Linked is adjustable at the desired position, with users easily able to pour from the pack without any cap interference.

The cap can then be closed by slightly lifting it and then locking it through standard usage.

SIG Iberia sales head Julio García Cuerva said: “We’ve worked closely with Terra Alegre to ensure the company stays well ahead of European regulatory requirements. As such, Terra Alegre can reassure its consumers that they are already contributing to minimising plastic waste leaking into the environment and oceans.”

The move is in line with Terra Alegre’s sustainability roadmap and will add important sustainable solutions to its existing portfolio.

This comes ahead of the deadline of the EU’s Single-Use Plastics Directive that requires all EU member states’ single-use beverage containers to feature caps by mid-2024.

Terra Alegre’s managing director Pedro Freire said: “We are committed to providing our clients, not only with the highest quality product, but also the most convenient and sustainable packaging solutions.

“By adding tethered caps to SIG’s carton packs, we are the first to offer this tethered closure well ahead of the EU’s directive, providing our clients an even more eco-friendly package.”

Earlier this year, SIG’s domeTwist closure tethered cap was adopted by Polish retailer Maspex Wadowice for use in its Tymbark Vega juice ranges.
