“With customer satisfaction first, and safety a must, we maintain our thorough commitment to product quality in the customer experience, from the taste of our products to the ease of use of our product containers”, said Takeshi Niinami, CEO, Suntory Holdings Limited.
Suntory Holdings Limited with over 300 group companies in Japan, Europe, Asia, Oceania, North and Latin America, has a mission is to create harmony with people and nature. It reflects in the whole product range: non-alcoholic beverages and spirits, wine and beer. Not to mention their customisation for each region served.
MayTea is a low sugar ice tea that enjoys high demand in Spain, France, and Belgium and is an alternative to traditional soft drinks that meets the ‘natural and healthy’ trend. It is low in calories and does not contain sweeteners, colorants, preservatives. The leaves that decorate the PET bottle echo the product inside.
The contribution of the Suntory Technological Development Centre in Tordera (near Barcelona, Spain) is difficult to overestimate. It is involved in the development of all new products for Europe, Africa, Middle East and Caribbean and includes sensorial analysis, pilot plant for new beverages and technical validation of packaging.
PET Technologies has become part of this journey after Suntory recently installed a universal UPF-5M blow molder with high pressure up to 40 bar as part of a several million euro investment at the centre.
What is its application?
- To test new PET bottles design
- To test different types of rotary blow molds
What are the advantages of these unique UPF-5M blow molder?
- The machine is adapted for rotary blow molds of all European brands;
- Blow molding conditions are close to the real, when a bottle is produced at high-speed rotary blow molder with high pressure up to 40 bar;
- Opportunity to test packaging at the market before investing at, let´s say, 20-cavity set of molds.
Concluded Niinami: “With customer satisfaction first, and safety a must, we maintain our thorough commitment to product quality in the customer experience, from the taste of our products to the ease of use of our product containers.” For more visit pet-eu.com
