The market for milk beverages, fruit beverages or mixed drinks has been growing at a dizzying pace in recent years. These beverages come in a variety of shapes and sizes, responding to different targets and their needs.
For the little ones, ergonomic containers that adapt to their little hands and an anti-choking cap to guarantee safe consumption. For young people and adults, attractive “Ready to drink” packaging with fresh and natural products for healthy eating at any time of the day. Also for athletes, with shapes that allow them to be gripped during physical activity. In all cases, flexible packaging is ideal for transporting in backpacks or bags throughout the day, keeping the product’s properties intact until the moment of consumption. In addition, as it has a cap, the container can be closed if it is not fully consumed. Finally, since it is made from recyclable materials, it is an environmentally friendly container.
Ultra Clean technology
One of Barcelona Packaging Hub’s partners, Effytec, uses Ultra Clean technology. Thanks to this, the product is packaged under hygienic conditions, including film and valves, achieving a microbacterial log reduction inside the package of up to Log5. Depending on the product characteristics, distribution chain and other conditions, it would be possible to guarantee a longer shelf life, reducing or even eliminating all preservatives.
In addition, it works with laminar flow, certified by an external and international laboratory. The dosing area and inner side of the film must be kept clean through the pressurized laminar flow and HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters that maintain a slight overpressure in these areas, compared to the external air. The laminar flow is designed according to GMP, FDA as well as European regulations and requirements.
A dosing system designed under FDA 3A standard, with a complete execution in Bio stainless steel, decontamination of film and valves, certified by an external laboratory.
