Ferrarelle Società Benefit relies on Sidel’s aseptic technology for its new range of functional water and teas

Ferrarelle Società Benefit has partnered with Sidel to install its first-ever aseptic line at the Boario plant to produce its product range of Vitasnella ‘Le Linfe’ functional water and teas. With natural ingredients and a mix of flavors, the products have been designed with consumers well-being in mind, promoting a 360-degree healthy lifestyle.

Ferrarelle Società Benefit, one of the largest mineral water producers in Italy, well-known for its unique naturally sparkling water properties, bottles ‘Boario’, ‘Vitasnella’ and ‘Fonte Essenziale’ mineral waters at its Boario plant. Close to the picturesque Iseo Lake, the plant sources its water from the mountains close to the factory. This strategic location allows Boario to produce uniquely bottled mineral water with health-enhancing properties.

Ferrarelle Società Benefit chose Sidel’s Aseptic Combi Predis technology to produce its new range of functional water and teas. Sidel supported the company in installing its aseptic technology to ensure a high-end taste experience, product integrity and a long shelf-life, utilising its Predis  dry preform decontamination solution – a safe, hygienic, cost-effective way of packaging a variety of sensitive beverages.

By installing Sidel’s Aseptic Combi Predis to produce Vitasnella ‘Le Linfe’ product range, Boario’s line is capable of handling two different formats, 0.5 liters and 1.25 liters, and achieves 18,000 bottles per hour. This system ensures full production sterility, beverage integrity and food safety with easy operations.

“Le Linfe functional waters and tea ranges are extremely important for us and we wanted to avoid any potential risks. That’s why we decided to turn to Sidel, given their extensive expertise in aseptic technology,” said Nicola Tignonsini, Operations director at Ferrarelle.

“As our only line producing sensitive beverages, it was crucial that we had an aseptic system that could ensure the highest level of product safety and integrity,” said Marcelo Astrini, Plant director at Boario. “We trusted Sidel to install our first aseptic line in the company due to its extensive expertise on total food safety.”

Product safety with Sidel’s aseptic solution

Sidel’s Aseptic Combi Predis offers the simplest and safest dry preform decontamination on the market, the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and an optimised environmental footprint. No water is used in this process and the use of chemicals is radically reduced, matching the highest sustainability standards required, while maintaining a high output, offering great ease of operations and ensuring a very flexible production.

Offering optimum food safety and product quality, Aseptic Combi Predis has now been installed in over 200 solutions worldwide and has enabled Sidel to be a global leader in aseptic production.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
