From glass to carton


Food retailer Waitrose is changing the packaging for its own label passata range, from glass jars to carton packs.

SIG Combibloc’s flexible filling technology and the retortable combisafe carton pack will now be used, moving from 680g glass jars to 500ml cartons.

Due to its rectangular shape, the carton promises maximised transportation and storage efficiency, and use of shelf space in the supply chain. combisafe carton packs also fill up the available space on supermarket shelves 30% better than food metal cans, according to the company.

Its perforation opening means the top of the carton pack can simply be torn off by consumers, without the use of scissors. This allows easy pouring and even spooning to remove all contents from the carton pack, and so reducing food waste.
