Scholle IPN, which produces flexible packaging for wine, processed fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and aseptic juices in the Latin American market, has opened a manufacturing facility in Santiago, Chile.

The 2,000m2 building includes offices, a warehouse, and clean room environment for manufacturing bag-in-box and spouted pouches.


It will incorporate the same manufacturing procedures used in its Vinhedo, Brazil, plant to produce bag-in-box packaging in sizes from 3 liter to 220 liter and smaller format CleanPouches from 70g to 120g.  

Ademir Fragnani, managing director Latin America, Scholle IPN, said it wanted to open a plant in Chile because it is closer to important customers in the food industry and the fast-growing wine industry.

Being located near our customers will allow more integration, ensuring fast responses and short lead times,” he said.

Our business in the South American region has a track record of double-digit growth in recent years. This new facility brings capacity to meet customer demand for growth as it is highly integrated with the Scholle IPN facility in Vinhedo, Brazil.

The new location in Santiago is just five minutes from the most important route connecting to the south end of Chile. This puts us in a great position to serve key markets in the South American region as we’re closely located and easily accessible.”

14 packaging sites

Scholle IPN has 14 packaging manufacturing sites in total, two filling equipment manufacturing sites, and four sales offices across five continents.

Rafael Pereira, plant manager, Vinhedo and Santiago, Scholle IPN, said for commercial purposes the facility opened in May with an invitation to customers and local suppliers.

The plant in Vinhedo, Brazil, which has been operating for more than 15 years, is fully supporting the start-up plant as we learn these standards,” said Pereira.

Both plants are supervised by the same quality manager, giving us a good understanding of how to implement these standards in our region.

We have a goal to help our customers deliver their products in a way that is safe, natural, economic, and sustainable. Consistency in our production processes from plant to plant is a key to achieving this goal.”
