Sig Combibloc introduces Food Option.
Food Option filling machines are new filling machines based on the standard SIG Combibloc tilling technology, including only minor technical adjustments prior to machine delivery to enable operators to fill a whole host of additional food products. If a filling machine comes with the Food Option, the quantity of chunky product ingredients can be up to 10 percent; the size of the particulates can be up to 6mm, and fibres can be 1 x 15min in size; viscosity can potentially be up to 3,500mPas. This means Food Option filling machines make it possible to fill an unrivalled spectrum of food products aseptically-quickly and with no need for major additional investment. The flexibility of the filling machine technology is also the key to products that allow higher margins.
Right now, the issue of margins is preoccupying the food industry more keenly than ever. Particularly in light of this, aseptic Food Option filling machines from SIG Combibloc may be of interest for any food manufacturer who wants to expand the existing product range by adding more profitable products, without investing in a high-end solution for filling food products such as ready-meals or chunky soups and sauces-regardless of whether it is a beverage producer looking to enter the food business, or an established food manufacturer planning an investment to add further products to the portfolio.
Alongside classic beverages-whether from the dairy sector or NCSD-with Food Option filling machines from SIG Combibloc, even pasty and high-viscosity food products and products with a specific particulate content can be filled aseptically in carton packs.
This can be easily carried over to other product segments such as soups, which can also be filled on Food Option filling machines. As well as Filling products such as beverages and bouillons on one and the same filling machine, the Food Option machines can fill more complex, and therefore usually higher-margin products such as veloutes or mouline soups in carton packs..
In the dairy products sector too, food manufacturers can tap into entirely new business segments. Because it is not just milk and milk-mix beverages that can be Filled using the aseptic Food Option Filling machines--the more viscous dessert sauces, puddings and custard are possible, as well.
Food manufacturers who are already using the aseptic system in the juice or dairy segment and want to expand their portfolio by adding unusual new products, or who are planning to enter the food business, will be ideally positioned with a Food Option filling machine, enabling them also to fill soups, sauces and desserts containing small particulates and fibres, or very viscous products.
Similarly, food manufacturers who are already filling food products such as tomato passata, cream soups or dessert sauces in aseptic carton packs, and are thinking about investing in a new, further filling machine for filling food products, can substantially broaden their product spectrum with the Food Option machine from SIG Combibloc.
