Riedel opts for SIG packaging to reinforce its commitment to sustainability

Packaging saves fossil resources

Riedel, a leading Dutch fruit drinks manufacturer, is relaunching its CoolBest fruit juices in SIGNATURE PACK Full Barrier 500-, 1,000- and 1,500-ml aseptic carton packs. Produced by SIG, the carton packs are primarily composed of FSC-certified paperboard, while the polymers used to laminate the paperboard have a clear link to 100 percent plant-based material via a mass balance system, i.e., an equivalent amount of bio-based feedstock goes into the manufacturing of the polymers.

The carbon footprint of the packaging is 34 to 60 percent lower (depending on format and country) than a standard SIG carton pack of the respective format, based on a lifecycle assessment conducted by independent ifeu Institute in accordance with ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 standards.
