Aptar Food + Beverage is proud to introduce Tower, a dispensing solution designed to increase package cleanliness and improve the consumer experience.

The chili sauces category is a hot-growing market within sauces and condiments. With a worldwide forecasted CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 5.1% (Euromonitor), this category’s growth contribution comes partly from Millennial and Generation Z consumers’ taste profiles, which demand spicier foods to match their growing curiosity about international cuisines. According to a recent Instacart survey, 74% of Americans eat hot sauce with their food, and nearly half (45%) said they typically dash hot sauce on their food once a week or more often.

From a packaging standpoint, one common consumer pain point Aptar noticed through independent consumer studies is a lack of package cleanliness throughout the product’s life. With today’s standard packaging formats, it is common for products to collect overtime on the closure deck resulting in a ‘crusty’ appearance. This leaves consumers with unpleasant visual and hygiene concerns when using the product.

Aptar’s Tower will improve consumer experience

To combat this consumer challenge, Aptar Food + Beverage is delighted to introduce Tower. Unlike traditional twist-to-open closures used in this format today, Tower leverages a flip-top design. This allows consumers to open the cap without touching or viewing any leftover product residue. Its directional tip also encourages the familiar dashing gesture but reduces the likelihood that the product will collect on the closure.

For a superior consumer dispensing experience and ensured cleanliness, Tower can be combined with Aptar’s SimpliSqueeze technology, which offers advanced and market-proven flow control. Tower is a global product offering currently on the market in Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America.

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.
