A new closure from Berry Global, specifically created for sauces, demonstrates the company’s circular design capabilities in devising a lightweight and recyclable solution while delivering consumer convenience benefits.

Berry has utilized its technical skills to create a lighter closure than other available versions, offering valuable material savings without compromising its strength and durability to ensure consistently reliable performance. The closure is manufactured 100% in polypropylene (PP).

Berry Global’s new closure to meet the needs of the food sector

The closure design features an extended narrow spout that provides controlled and accurate dispensing of the product for the end-user. It can be specified in snap-on or screw-on versions and is suitable for bottles with a 38 millimeter neck finish, including Berry’s extensive range of standard sauce bottles, enabling the company to offer customers a complete bottle and closure solution.

“Our new closure has been designed to be extremely versatile to meet the many different needs of the food sector while delivering a reliable performance and helping food manufacturers to improve the sustainability of their packaging,” commented Matthias Hammersen, sales director Food Market, Berry Global. “We look forward to continuing to support our customers in achieving their lightweighting objectives and developing packaging solutions that help them become even more sustainable.”


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!
