After having required clean label, consumers are now concerned about manufacturing processes, says Claranor. 

The company, which designs and supplies packaging sterilization systems for beverage and dairy industries based on Pulsed Light Technology, says people want to be reassured about the origin, the way of producing and environmental footprint of their goods.

More ‘naturality’

 

This is for packaging but also in terms of formulation, they are looking for more ‘naturality’, said Isabelle de Forsanz, market manager, Claranor.

Consequently, products are not anymore self-stable, the filling process requires increased hygienic measures like packaging sterilization,” she said. 

Whereas the industry is cost driven it is a real challenge to produce without preservative and with more natural ingredients while keeping a process without chemical disinfection means.

To achieve their new goals the industrialists introduce major changes and best practices in their way of producing. Greener processes which require less or no chemicals, less energy, no water are becoming the rule, or at least the target.”

Inline packaging sterilization

Claranor, based in Avignon, France, designs and manufactures pulsed light units for inline packaging sterilization, using no chemical disinfectants nor water.

Its systems are aimed at manufacturers of sensitive food products, particularly beverages and dairy products.

De Forsanz added Interpack, in Dusseldorf, Germany, (May 4-10) is a major tradeshow and 2017 will be the fourth time it has participated in the event. 

Its portfolio includes Claranor Essential, a compact and cost-attractive cap sterilization designed for low and medium speed lines; Full cap sterilization, to address cross-contamination issues for ESL products (> 60 days) and the Puls’Combi FS, which is a combined decontamination of cups and lids. 

On Claranor’s booth, visitors will have the opportunity to see two cup sterilizers already sold to dairies in France (4 lanes) and in Turkey (12 lanes), to be installed on Doselec filling lines,” said de Forsanz.

The compactness of our unit makes it easy to integrate on existing line. Using no water and no chemicals, our decontamination systems meet industrial expectations in terms of germicidal effects without the drawbacks of chemicals and irradiation technologies.”

Food and beverage manufacturers and OEM’s can discuss their packaging sterilization projects with the Claranor team and Löhrke, its exclusive distributor in Germany.
