October 28, 2020 - 09:05

NEUHAUSEN, Switzerland , Oct. 27, 2020 (Press Release) -SIG has been chosen by Shefa and Líder Alimentos, two major Brazilian dairy companies, as their preferred partner to supply advanced aseptic filling technology and packaging solutions.

A total of nine aseptic filling machines have been successfully installed and are now fully operational at production sites in São Paulo and Paraná. The advanced filling technology from SIG enables both Shefa and Líder Alimentos to offer a wide variety of beverages in aseptic carton packs with different formats and volume sizes. From plain milk and flavoured dairy products to plant-based beverages and nectars, the entire ranges can now be filled in aseptic SIG carton packs to help meet increasingly differentiated consumer demand.

Having worked closely with the expert team at SIG, both companies are convinced that SIG’s state-of-the-art filling technology and extensive packaging portfolio is the best choice now and for the future, offering a winning combination of highest quality, flexibility, efficiency and speed.

Roberto Adabo, Shefa’s CEO: “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 is committed to furthering the growth of its customers by providing solutions that help to increase productivity and yet reduce costs. The possibility of filling several products in different packaging and volume sizes on the same filling machine brings agility and competitive advantage to brands.

Nilson Sabino, Director at Líder Alimentos: “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.”

SIG’s close cooperation with both Shefa and Líder Alimentos offers true product innovation and differentiation as part of SIG’s Value Proposition, which aims to deliver innovative product and packaging solutions that enable businesses to satisfy ever-changing needs.
