CPL will supply Plastic Layer Pads (PLPs) which will be used for packing, transporting, and storage of the glass bottles used for wines and sparkling wines.
Reusable pool system
The glass bottles will be produced by one of the largest manufacturers of glass containers for food and beverages located in São Paulo with a factory in Rio Grande do Sul, packed on pallets and separated by PLPs from CPL.
The PLPs are sorted, cleaned, inspected and made available again by CPL within the reusable pool system for the transportation of the glass containers to Casa Valduga.
“We wanted to adopt an international standard in the packaging system of our bottles, since all of Europe already uses this model composed of a product manufactured with inert material,” said Daniel Dalla Valle, technical director, Casa Valduga.
“This partnership with CPL will bring an increase in the quality of the products produced by Casa Valduga and will be an important tool in the improvement of national sparkling wines.
CPL has more than 30 years’ experience in the management of reusable transit packaging products, which consists of delivery and return collection, sorting and cleaning of the assets.
The German based multinational Group operates in Brazil through its subsidiary, CPL Brazil, that will be rolling-out and replicating the business model of the company, which is widely established and consolidated in Europe and several countries in Asia and Africa.
“Brazil is an attractive growth market for us, and offers enormous potential. We are delighted to expand our presence in the Brazilian market and offer increased level of service for customers in this region,” said Elcio de Moura, MD, CPL Brazil.
“We see this partnership as a great opportunity to improve quality, both in terms of hygiene and food safety, as well as sustainability."
The PLPs used in the bottle packaging process will replace the traditional wooden layer pads (masonite), bringing significant improvements in quality, hygiene, productivity and sustainability.
The PLPs come in contact with the mouths of the bottles, but the sanitation and inspection process of the PLPs ensures a product free of contaminations.
PLPs by CPL are utilized at more than 130 production locations in 20 countries for the transportation of glass, cans and PET containers to filling plants.
