As a leading supplier to the dairy industry, Nampak Rigid Plastics offers a complete selection of packaging solutions for every dairy need – be it fresh, extended shelf life, steri or long life. Crucial to the markets served, Nampak Closures’ product range is designed and engineered to achieve maximum product integrity and filling line efficiencies for dairy products.
With what Nampak claims to be the most diverse range of closures in the country, the company is ‘on top’ when it comes to supplying specialised plastic closures such as the Snap-cap and DBJ range of closures, suitable for both PET and HDPE bottles in the dairy industry.
An innovative example of Nampak Closures’ capability is the DBJ flat cap for milk bottles, designed to provide superior leak resistance and tamper evidence. A little closure with a big job, the DBJ has a drop-down band that, once the bottle is opened, is forced away from the rest of the closure and drops to a highly noticeable margin. In this way, the closure reveals any tampering or faults and provides stronger, more durable cap tops to preserve freshness.
By combining a world-class product with local market knowledge and expertise, Elopak South Africa supplies the attractive Pure-Pak range of cartons to the non-carbonated liquid beverage market and many leaders in the dairy industry.
This dynamic range includes Pure-Pak cartons for milk, fruit juice and drinking yoghurt products in the dairy industry.
Elopak South Africa’s ESL (extended shelf life) carton provides a solution that satisfies both consumers’ and retailers’ demands for fresh milk that stays fresh for longer. Ultra pasteurised milk packed in ESL cartons now stays fresh for up to 21 days unopened, allowing fresh milk products to compete with their long-life counterparts.
Nampak Liquid claims to be the largest and most diversified supplier of liquid packaging solutions to the non-carbonated beverage industry, including the dairy sector. The company supplies Conipak cartons, PET bottles, HDPE bottles and jars, and filling and handling systems for fresh and long-life dairy and fruit juice products.
The company also developed the local range of ground breaking multi-layer plastic bottles for long-life milk (PPM, Mar09, p14) – a first for the South African market. These 100% recyclable plastic bottles not only differentiated a segment of the dairy market but also defined a new one, breathing fresh life into the long-life category and providing the consumers with an attractive packaging alternative to the previous ‘brick-format’ packs.
