Aptar Food + Beverage launched a Rocket sports cap that offers visual consumer safety through a yellow-colored band that indicates whether the packaging has been opened on store shelves or at home. This solution redefines beverage packaging safety standards as the first one in the market, providing a visual and intuitive non-detachable tamper evidence indicator.

Aptar is dedicated to creating solutions based directly on consumer feedback,” Nguyen Hoang, Sebastien, global business development director beverage, said. “Rocket was born from consumer insights to offer visual safety that provides reassurance, in addition to an improved drinking experience that brings the comfort and convenience consumers value.”

In addition to its visible safety, Rocket provides further safety to consumers with its ‘no-dust,’ double-wall lid design that protects the spout from external contaminants, in addition to being designed to adhere to child safety standards (BSDA & EN 71). A large finger recess and audible closing ‘click’ sound make opening and closing Rocket easy and reassuring for consumers.

Aptar’s rocket smart cap can meet the demand for sustainable packaging

Nguyen Hoang said the design and functionality of Rocket enhance what consumers and brands expect from a sports cap. For example, while most caps open at a 110-degree angle, Rocket’s hinge technology offers a 180-degree angle. The hinge functionality also ensures the elimination of a lid spring-back effect. Altogether, Rocket provides a wider opening and a more comfortable drinking experience.

“Our goal was to develop a cap that meets consumer expectations in terms of safety and comfort of drinking, while also addressing the increasing demand for sustainable packaging,” Nguyen Hoang said. “Consumer and brand product standards are always evolving, and Rocket was created to stay at the forefront of these changes.”

 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
