Ecolean Air Aseptic Clear
Ecolean will run the machine on a 400m² exhibitor stand producing more than 80,000 packages per day and showcase its Ecolean Air Aseptic Clear 250ml pack, which it launched at the beginning of the year.
Peter Nilsson, CEO, Ecolean, told FoodProductionDaily, the EL4 aseptic filling machine was first launched at Anuga FoodTec in 2012 and now represents 10% of the firm’s worldwide installed base.
“The message we want to focus on with our EL4+ machine is that we can deliver on lighter packaging, and we want to emphasize we have moved on quite a bit since we launched an aseptic platform and opened offices all over the world,” he said.
“It’s all about innovation and stand out shelf appeal today, everyone is talking about lightweighting it’s a strong trend, with the benefits of less material, less cost, and less burden on the environment. Manufacturers are reducing the size of everything.
“We will be displaying our Ecolean Air Aseptic Clear pack in a fun way, visitors to the booth can watch the EL4+ in action, and visit our pop-up faux store, and there will be presentations from our customer, Engro Foods, in Pakistan.”
