Spanish dairy farmers favour aseptic bottling in PET

Sidel Parma, IO, Italy

In cooperation with Sidel, Spanish dairy company Andía Lácteos de Cantabria S.L. have modernised their plant in Renedo de Piélagos with the most modern, state-of-the-art aseptic PET bottling technology for ultra-high-temperature (UHT) milk for the Spanish dairy player.

Andía Lácteos de Cantabriaare a part of the Iparlat Group, which originally were created from the Spanish union of dairy farmer cooperatives. The company mainly package liquid dairy products sold under a well-known Spanish retailer brand. The same retailer gave the initial impulse to move from carton and HDPE bottles towards bottling milk in PET. On their Sidel Aseptic Combi Predis™ – now in operation – extended shelf life milk (ESL), UHT milk and milkshakes are bottled in three formats (0.25 L, 1 L and 1.5 L), giving the dairy player the opportunity to broaden their spectrum of SKUs.

Sidel Aseptic Combi Predis with its dry preform and cap sterilisation technology was integrated into an existing bottling line for HDPE bottles, providing simple, cost-effective as well as sustainable and flexible production.
