    SIGs CO2-reduced carton pack now used for Milsani UHT milk range

    In Spain, ALDI – one of the main discounters in Europe – has chosen the combibloc EcoPlus 1.000ml aseptic carton pack from SIG as a sustainable packaging solution for its Milsani long life milk range, reducing CO2 by up to 28% compared to using a conventional 1-litre SIG carton pack of the same format.

    The CO2 saving of up to 28 per cent is due to the material composition. The main component of combibloc EcoPlus is 82% unprocessed paperboard, which is made from the renewable and entirely bio-based FSCTM-certified raw material wood and gives the carton stability. A ultra-thin polyamide layer serves as a barrier to protect the product from flavour loss and external odours. Added to the aluminium-free combibloc EcoPlus carton pack are fine polyethylene layers, inside and out. The inner layer forms a liquid barrier for the product while the outer layer keeps moisture out.
