This past March, Beverage World Magazine once again highlighted Aptar Food + Beverage in its Sustainable Packaging Awards. These awards recognize companies that are driving innovation in package design and manufacturing while reducing impacts on the environment. You may view the article here.
Aptar’s SimpliSqueeze® Swimming Silicone valve technology and UNO 1881 were specifically mentioned by Beverage World Magazine. SimpliSqueeze® Swimming Silicone valve technology enables beverage packages to be recycled without the silicone material interfering with the valuable PET recovery stream. Instead, the valve floats during the standard sink/swim recycling process making it a recycling-friendly solution. Uno is Aptar’s newest sport closure using the market accepted design of the Original sport closure family. However, it is in a one-piece design to reduce the closure’s weight and material. According to Jean-Marc Philbois, Global Market Development President-Beverage, “Uno is poised to continue moving the sport closure market forward as consumers increasingly demand convenient and environmentally-friendly packaging.”
