Nutpods launches oat creamers in SIG’s combidome packaging

Recyclable carton bottles with fully printable display surfaces

Nutpods introduces a new product line - zero sugar oat creamer in Original and Cinnamon Swirl. These new products are nutpods’ first appearance of a new look in 16oz combidome packaging with single-action domeTwist from SIG.

US-based Nutpods, an industry-leading coffee creamer company, has recently introduced a new product line – zero sugar oat creamer. Available in two varieties, Original and Cinnamon Swirl, these flavors follow an online-only launch of shelf-stable oat Original and French Vanilla and are part of a rapidly increasing number of oat-based alternative dairy products.

According to the company, the new oat creamers available in combidome, the carton bottle from SIG, will hit shelves in the coming months at the three largest natural retailers – Sprouts, Whole Foods, and Fresh Thyme.

“We knew that oat as a base ingredient would be a great complement to our nut-based creamers, with its neutral taste and incredible frothability. It has grown even faster than we anticipated,” says Nutpods founder and chief executive officer Madeline Haydon. “While retailers have slowed resets due to Covid-19, they are still excited about the growth and potential of oat creamers.”

According to reports, in the past four weeks, oat has become the number two driver of dollar growth in the category. The grain continues to win American consumers with its low environmental impact compared to other non-dairy alternatives, but most notably, its effective ability to mimic dairy.

Stand out from the crowd

Original and Cinnamon Swirl Oat Creamers are Nutpods’ first appearance in a new carton pack, the 16 oz combidome carton bottle from SIG. Consumers will also start to see the company’s core line of refrigerated almond coconut blend creamers, in Original, French Vanilla, Hazelnut, and Caramel, in combidome cartons starting in July.

With fully printable display surfaces, Nutpods has plenty of space to highlight and convey their messaging and new design. According to SIG, its convenient handling features make it a winner for consumers as well. The centrally-located single-action domeTwist screw cap and wide opening make it easy to open and to pour. The closure also enables a controllable product flow without dripping.

The combidome carton bottles are recyclable and have a good environmental footprint. The lightweight cartons carry the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) label, confirming that wood from FSC-certified, responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources is used to manufacture the unprocessed cardboard.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
