Pakistan Beverage Limited (PBL) is one of the leading beverage producers in Pakistan and has once again selected Sidel, the leading global provider of PET solutions for liquid packaging, to boost its products’ quality and production efficiency to meet increased market demand. The Standalone SBO8 Universal2Eco blower for Carbonated Soft Drinks (CSD) is the second blower that PBL has purchased from Sidel in less than a year, with the aim of combining high output rates with exceptional reliability at the company’s production facility in Karachi, Pakistan.
“At Pakistan Beverage Limited, we always strive to operate reliable equipment that can help us keep up with the market demand. We have worked with Sidel for almost two decades, and with the use of their machines and innovative solutions, we have seen our production capacity increase.” commented Ronnie Daruwalla, Group Director of Manufacturing Operations at PBL.
Growing market demand, growing need for Sidel Services
In Pakistan, the CSD category is second only to milk in terms of quantity consumed. According to industry estimates, the consumption of CSD was estimated at 825.9 million litres in 2015 and projected to exceed one billion litres by the end of 2019 through a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7.4 per cent. With this growing consumer demand comes the need for greater production volume at an increased level of efficiency.
