FAQs

Especially when processing sensitive dairy products the product and corresponding filling technology must be perfectly coordinated with one another. This is why we offer you hygienic filling systems suited to your specific requirements which ensure the microbiological safety of your product and high line availability, namely our ultraclean filling (UCF), extended shelf life (ESL) and aseptic cold filling (ACF) systems.

Various light barrier technologies are available on the market which are applied depending on the specific requirements. For fresh and flavored milk in the cold chain transparent PET is often used; for UHT milk and flavored products made of UHT milk which are not distributed through the cold chain opaque PET is usually preferred. Bottles made with titanium dioxide, using multilayer technology or with a special protective sleeve provide a reliable light barrier. These ensure that all the vitamins are retained in the milk.

Yes, of course. Healthy and sustainable foods are playing an ever greater role in our society. This trend is resulting in an increasing demand for functional dairy products. These healthy products often contain fruit chunks which can be dosed in pieces measuring up to 10 x 10 x 10 mm thanks to our especially gentle filling technology.

Through their individual and exclusive bottle shapes brand manufacturers and retailers are extremely interested in supplying a safe plastic bottle which is suitable for daily use and easy to hold. Regardless of whether these are trendy milk products, launched to market as being health- and lifestyle-conscious in the general view of the consumer, or fresh Alpine or free-range milk, new dairy products start out in the plastic bottle.

PET bottles are 100% recyclable. For many years non-returnable bottles have contained recycled PET and bio-based plastics. Another promising natural material we are counting on is currently being researched at Hoheim University: polyethylene furanoate or PEF. This is made entirely of plant-based raw materials, can be recycled and is heralded as the packaging material of the future. PEF is distinguished by its increased impermeability to carbon dioxide and oxygen and thus ensures that the packaged products keep longer. Another advantage of the new material is its higher mechanical load-bearing capacity.
