NORTHLAKE, Ill., Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Scholle IPN, a global leader in flexible packaging solutions, has announced today that they are launching the world's first pre-made, sterilized spouted pouch system for aseptically-processed products. The CleanPouch™ Aseptic System includes: an innovative spout, plug, and cap combination; pouches made within clean room environments; and a small-footprint, high-output aseptic rotary filler.
David Bellmore, Director of Global Film and Package Development for Scholle IPN, said about the CleanPouch Aseptic System, "We've utilized nearly fifty years of aseptic packaging know-how to create this new system. From the outset of design, finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, rapid prototyping, and extensive testing through the prototyping phase were keys to development. The knowledge gained from our in-market success with the SureFill® line of aseptic bag-in-box packaging has helped prove out our process and gives us the utmost confidence that this system will deliver aseptically-processed products safely, naturally, economically, and sustainably."
"Clean label and natural foods are a trend that's here to stay," said Lani Craddock, Scholle IPN's Vice President of Retail Products. "The Egg Board recently released statistics on clean labels saying 93% of consumers prefer to see common names for ingredients on their labels and 58% say they would be willing to pay more for natural products. Clearly consumers are ready and willing to pay for this type of innovation as the spouted pouch format is so prevalent on store shelves today. As a decades-long leader in aseptic flexible packaging, customers have come to us to help them produce their freshest products possible. Separating the complexity and risk of pouch making from production operations affords our customers the ability to focus on what they do best. The CleanPouch Aseptic System is our answer to that call."
David Bellmore is a featured presenter at the 2016 Aseptipak USA conference on aseptic packaging. Mr. Bellmore will give an overview of how the CleanPouch Aseptic System will reduce production cost and complexity. The Aseptipak USA Conference will be held in Raleigh, North Carolina March 1-2, 2016.
