Populations are increasing. So too are natural resources restrictions and urbanisation. Such changes are placing unprecedented pressure on our planet and increasing the demand for safe, clean and high-quality beverages. At Sidel we are thinking ahead and adapting our equipment and services so that they fit to the needs of beverage producers both now and in the future.
Sidel helps beverage producers adapt to fast-changing and increasingly competitive markets by creating value in five key areas: product quality, flexibility, reliability, brand impact and cost optimisation. Sidel has the equipment, services and people to create sustainable PET liquid packaging solutions that deliver this value combination for beverage producers, brand owners and bottlers around the globe. We call it A Better Match.
To always be able to deliver on our promise to be A Better Match, Sidel’s strategy is to transform Sidel along the strategic axes of Customer Proximity, Technology Leadership and Operational Excellence.
PET is already the packaging material of choice for many beverage categories, and is increasingly becoming so for others. Plus it has all the qualities necessary to meet the diverse needs arising from global and consumer trends.
PET is tough, shatterproof and versatile. It allows beverage producers to create nearly any bottle shape or size using fewer raw materials with consistent results. Its design flexibility enables beverage producers to meet the needs and preferences of consumers with great brand recognition potential. It is also easy to store, carry, clean and re-seal.
PET also protects the safety and quality of beverages across the supply chain with excellent barrier material properties and extended shelf lives. As a sustainable liquid packaging solution, it is also 100 per cent recyclable and is evolving into even more environmentally-friendly forms, including recycled PET (R-PET) and plant-based PET (Bio-PET).
All of these great characteristics are why PET is increasingly becoming a packaging material of choice, and why Sidel is strategically focused to benefit from its growth within the beverage industry worldwide.
