SIG has announced that it will be unveiling its new on-the-go carton bottle SIG DomeMini during Gulfood Manufacturing 2023, offering all the convenience of a plastic bottle and the sustainability benefits of a carton pack. During its participation in the event, SIG is set to reveal and showcase the new carton bottle for the first time in the Middle East and Africa region.
SIG is also gearing up to participate in COP28 to further showcase the environmental benefits of its products, contributing to the reduction of plastic waste and aligning with the rising consumer interest in eco-friendly and sustainable packaging solutions.
The small-size carton bottle, designed for recycling, combines the convenience typically associated with plastic bottles with the environmental advantages of carton packs. It aims to encourage consumers to opt for responsible packaging, while allowing beverage manufacturers to churn out less plastic.
SIG DomeMini is mostly made from FSC certified paperboard and produced using 100% renewable electricity. With the high share of forest-based renewable material as well as a resource-efficient and space-saving design, SIG DomeMini offers several environmental benefits compared to alternative packaging options like plastic bottles.
Abdelghany Eladib, President & General Manager – IMEA at SIG stated, “We are thrilled to be part of Gulfood Manufacturing this year, where we will unveil the new SIG DomeMini. Our presence at ‘The Smarter Future’ gathering reflects our commitment to packaging solutions that prioritize sustainability. This innovative product is an exciting step forward – particularly amidst the urgent global challenges posed by pressing environmental issues – providing consumers and beverage manufacturers an opportunity to embrace sustainable packaging alternatives.”
Christoph Wegener, CMO at SIG said, “The market for on-the-go beverages continues to grow and offers immense potential. By combining convenience with sustainability, SIG DomeMini sets the stage and offers a new drinking experience for consumers, who can now enjoy their favorite drink on the move while helping reduce plastic waste.”
