Snapable PET-based technology for the dairy industry
clikPET® is a brand-new PET-based technology for the dairy industry. The new innovation embodies full polystyrene functionality, complemented by excellent gas and water vapour barrier properties and the ability to bend and click. This achieves increased shelf-life up to 10 days, avoids cup breakage during distribution, helps the customers to reduce costs in a competitive environment – and to meet the demands of the consumer.
Trends in the dairy market
Consumers around the world expect natural and healthy products as well as convenience and a fresh, indulgent and appetizing appeal. With regard to these trends, it is very often the packaging that makes the difference: it has to protect its content and be safe for the consumer. At the same time it has to offer innovative design solutions and innovation in serving – such as multi-packs and multi-chamber packs which are preferred for greater consumer interaction and engagement.
The new PET-based technology can be used on major FFS lines, seals, labels and trays. Thanks to the basis of PET technology, the product offers a safe and sustainable solution in this market. Even though it is PET-based, consumers can snap it, e.g. taking a yogurt cup out of multipacks. Due to the material basis, the shelf-life of the yogurt can be extended up to 10 days, offering more flexibility to retailers and suppliers and enhancing end-consumers’ needs for fresh and natural ingredients.
