Olympia Dairy has taken a big step forward in sustainability as it becomes the first company in Belgium to fill products in SIG aseptic carton packs with SIGNATURE 100 packaging material with no aluminium layer, 100% linked to forest-based renewable materials, SIGNATURE 100 lowers the carbon footprint of carton packs even further.
UHT semi-skimmed milk is launched in SIG’s combiblocMidi 1L. Olympia Dairy partners and SIG will play a pioneering role in sustainability within the European dairy industry.
SIGNATURE 100 packaging material from SIG is made from up to 82% FSC™-certified renewable paperboard, sourced from sustainably managed forests. The certified polymers used to laminate the paperboard, and in the closure, are linked to forest-based renewable material through a mass-balance system. SIG uses tall oil as its forest-based renewable feedstock – a by-product of the paper industry – rather than a crop grown on agricultural land that could otherwise be used for food. Committed to limiting the use of finite natural resources, SIG’s choice of raw materials contributes to a circular economy.
Kris Huygh, CEO at Olympia Dairy: “Following our installation of SIG’s fast and flexible CFA 812 filling machine last year – the first in Belgium – we were able to open up a new retail distribution channel for our liquid dairy products. Now we are playing another pioneering role in the European dairy market by being the first in Belgium to choose SIG’s with no aluminium layer SIGNATURE 100 packaging material. This sets a new benchmark in offering the most sustainable dairy products, which meet the needs of both retailers and our environmentally conscious consumers.”
