As part of a several million Euro investment project, DMK reviewed alternative packaging solutions for its rebranding of the Humana infant milk products. A completely new packaging line was at stake and in the end, the gas-tight composite can Sealio from A&R Carton came out as the winner.
Sealio outperformed the competition when consumer tests were made, per AR Packaging.
A tailored scoop holder ensures easy dosing and minimizes contamination while the tight re-closable lid prevents insects and moisture to enter.
Sealio is a patented carton-based packaging system invented by A&R Carton.
It is considerably lighter and has less carbon footprint than comparable gas-tight packaging alternatives such as tin cans and full plastic containers. The can is formed directly in the packaging line with all components delivered flat to the food producer.
“We have invested more than three years to develop the new Sealio system where we considered the stringent and increasing requirements of highly sensitive products,” said Lars Willner, business area director at AR Packaging. “Using our long experience in composite cans for barrier applications, we have now created a fantastic packaging solution which will meet the product and consumer needs of today and in the future. Sealio is ideal for food and nutritional powders where high barrier protection and food safety are vital.”
A&R Carton was responsible for the installation of the complete packaging line including fillers, conveyors, case packing equipment, etc.
“Our myHumana Pack is a completely new type of packaging,” said Iris Behrens, head of global marketing at Humana. “This innovative packaging allows the preparation of baby formula more safely, more hygienically and easier than ever before.”
