Aptar Food + Beverage has recently launched a new closure named Maestro for edible oil products. Maestro is suitable at home and in foodservice kitchens for cooking and seasoning every day with any of the edible oils like sunflower, canola, palm, soybean, olive, avocado, and coconut oils. 

Edible oil manufacturers continuously strive to increase the quality of their products to meet the evolving needs of end-consumers. Choosing the right packaging and closure has also become intrinsic to provide consumers with an enjoyable and overall positive experience.

Aptar’s Maestro closure can add value to edible oil owners

These are the three main areas where Aptar’s Maestro closure can add immediate value to edible oil brands –

Enhance Consumer Convenience

Maestro’s wide finger recess allows consumers to open the lid with one hand easily. The raised spout was thoughtfully designed to provide consumers with two options to control the product flow and allow for more precise application. Furthermore, Maestro’s pouring lip promotes a clean product cut-off, keeping drips, spills, and messes under control. Maestro delivers an easy and controlled product dispensing experience in the kitchen, on the table, or outdoors.

Results from Aptar’s consumer study completed in Paris in 2021 confirmed that most participants preferred Maestro to the existing closures in the market, as it is easier to open, pour and control the product flow.

Aptar’s Maestro tight fit of the lid and the raised spout is ideal to avoid product leakage. Maestro’s tight fit is ISTA-6 approved* and designed to withstand the rigors of the eCommerce supply chain.

Provide Shelf Differentiation

Maestro’s unique look brings a fresh and modern feel to edible oil packages. The colored spout, paired with a translucent over the cap, allows brands to select colors to match each product and help draw consumers’ attention to stores’ shelves and eCommerce sites. Maestro’s premium look and feel were designed to fit in the modern lifestyle of today’s consumers.

Achieve Sustainability Goals

This is another area where Maestro can add value as it is made with a fully recyclable composition (PP/PE). With its tethered cap, non-detachable parts, and recyclable material, Maestro enables brands to meet their sustainability goals and potentially reduce eco-tax fees while appealing to environmentally conscious consumers.

*Final package needs to pass ISTA-6 protocol to comply.


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 grown 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 and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
