The final European trade fair stop of the year for BERICAP, one of the leading global manufacturers of plastic and aluminum closures, is BrauBeviale 2023 in Nuremberg. The company will be showcasing sustainable and user-friendly solutions for the beverage sector under its “Welcome to Captown” slogan. Visitors can check them out in more detail as they explore “Beverage Hills” on the BERICAP stand, starting in the trend-setting tethered caps district before moving on to the dynamic Sport Caps precinct and the laid back neighborhood where the aluminum closures for wines and spirits can be found. Each zone provides in-depth insights into a specific product category.
Trendsetter: tried-and-tested Clip Aside Tethered Caps
EU Directive 2019/904 stipulates that plastic caps must remain attached to beverage bottles with a capacity of up to three liters after opening by 3 July 2024 at the latest. BERICAP is already optimally prepared to meet that requirement and more than 5 billion beverage bottles have been filled and marketed with Clip Aside closures. That figure continues to rise due to the fact that the new closures are available for all relevant PET bottle neck finishes from 26 to 38 mm in various beverage categories including carbonated soft drinks (CSD), water, juice and tea drinks, as well as milk products. Clip Asides are now used on more than 70 filling lines by an increasing number of customers across all beverage categories. Consumers are also very impressed by BERICAP tethered caps, particularly the 180-degree opening and intuitive handling, which received very positive feedback.
And there’s more, because BERICAP has enlarged its portfolio of tethered caps. The Clip Aside Tethered caps are now joined by the new Clip Cap 23 beverage carton closures.
