SIGNATURE EVO from SIG, the world’s first full barrier packaging material without aluminium layer for aseptic carton packs, has won the prestigious Gulf Sustainability Awards 2022 in the “Best Sustainable Product” category.
SIGNATURE EVO, which will be one of the highlights of the Gulfood Manufacturing 2022 trade fair taking place from 8 to 10 November at Dubai World Trade Centre, represents one of the most sustainable solutions in aseptic packaging. SIGNATURE EVO extends SIG’s lower-carbon packaging materials without aluminium layer – already available for plain white milk – for wider use with oxygen-sensitive products such as fruit juices, nectars, flavoured milk or plant-based beverages. It marks an evolution of aseptic carton with no aluminium layer, underlining SIG’s position as an industry leader in sustainable innovations.
As a fully deployable sustainable solution that does not compromise on performance, SIGNATURE EVO is a key breakthrough in the aseptic packaging sector. Removing the aluminium layer reduces energy needs in the supply chain and contributes to lowering the CO2 footprint of packaging.
Abdelghany Eladib, president and general manager Middle East and Africa at SIG, said, “This award is testament to SIG’s relentless efforts to working with its suppliers and customers on finding innovative solutions for industry-wide challenges through our research and development initiatives.
