SOUTH AFRICA – Dairy product manufacturer Fair Cape Dairies has added CFA 812 filling machine from aseptic carton supplier SIG to expand its flexibility with regard to packaging formats and volumes.
The CFA 812 filling machine allows Fair Cape Dairies to offer its products in South Africa using SIG‘s combistyle carton packs.
Available in 1 liter and 500ml sizes, combistyle features a new shaped corner designed to improve grip safety and provide more functionality and convenience.
Fair Cape Dairies Group CFO JJ Olivier said: “We are very excited to have partnered with SIG on adding a new SIG filling machine that will allow us to offer the first unique combistyle carton pack in South Africa.
“Our experience working with SIG provided us with a fantastic performance, world-class efficiency and reduction in waste that supports our sustainability journey.
“We continue to expand our portfolio to offer a bigger range of products for our customers. The pack with the shaped corner panel stands out on the shelf and offers extra convenience.”
The CFA 812 machine is intended to offer users more flexibility in packaging different formats and sizes.
The packaging innovation helps beverage manufacturers stand out from the crowd and makes it easier for consumers to find exactly what they need.
The stylish ‘corner panel’ also allows Fair Cape Dairies to highlight its corporate promise and brand message: ‘Do the Right Thing’.
Fair Cape Dairies previously installed two SIG CFA 312 filling machines, which use SIG’s combiblocSlimline carton packs.
The company is now offering combiblocSlimline, combiblocMidi, combifitMidi and combistyle among other packaging formats.
Following the installation of SIG CFA 312, the company has seen strong demand and growth for its popular Fair Cape brand of UHT milk.
SIG Middle East and Africa president and general manager Abdelghany Eladib added: “combistyle is one of our latest innovations and Fair Cape Dairies is the perfect partner to officially introduce it in the South African market.
“The packaging offers Fair Cape differentiation on the store shelf, convenience and flexibility. combistyle exemplifies SIG’s commitment to delivering innovative, differentiated product and packaging solutions that help businesses satisfy ever-changing needs.”
