Aegg to launch a new glass bottle range at Packaging Innovations 2016

January 08

Jar-Beer-Bottles-AeggUK based Aegg Creative Packaginghas announced that it will officially launch its new glass bottle product range at Packaging Innovations in Birmingham.

The company will also offer at its stand an exhibition space to Tecnocap, the worldwide metal closures specialist, so it will be able to provide an overview for integrated closing solutions as part of its already established packaging offering. Alongside the launch, Aegg’s recent glass and plastic jar designs will be showcased, including a unique 540ml glass sauce jar, 250ml sauce glass jar and a new injection stretch blow moulded recyclable plastic ‘PET’ pot, known as the ‘milk churn’.

Packaging Innovations sees the official launch of Aegg’s beer bottles, an extension to its already established food packaging lines. The standard bottles are available from February 2016, with bespoke design options available through Aegg’s in-house product design team later in the year, in line with the company’s unique turnkey project management solutions.
Aegg will also launch an all-embracing glass jar service at the show, by offering integrated packaging solutions thanks to the presence of Tecnocap. It will mean that not only can the company offer its existing bespoke jar packaging solution from developing a product from initial design concept right through to managing manufacturing and setting up the supply chain; it can now also offer a capping referral solution through Tecnocap’s know-how in metal closing systems, making Aegg the ‘go-to’ brand for complete jar packaging for both large and small projects. The Aegg stand will feature Tecnocap’s metal closures including its special lithographic, embossed, coatings and colour options. The Tecnocap Group is the third largest worldwide player in the production of metal closures for glass jars, bottles and plastic containers which are utilized in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and beauty industries.

Tecnocap’s UK and Ireland Sales Manager, Jeff Edwards, added “We are delighted about this experience and confident that our presence at Aegg’s stand, focused on packaging innovations, will give a chance to discuss any cap and capping machinery related queries visitors to the stand may have.”

Aegg’s Packaging Innovations stand will also feature its most recent glass and plastic jar designs, with its unique 540ml glass sauce jar, 250ml glass sauce jar and plastic ‘milk churn’ yogurt pot, all of which are currently on supermarket shelves. The 540ml glass sauce jar, which Aegg calls the ‘subtle dog bone’, is taller than existing ones on the market and not so rounded at the top, giving it better shelf space and a more striking appearance. The unique and innovative ‘milk churn’ design has a brim-full capacity of 135ml and was developed by Aegg using a lightweight recyclable plastic, PET, for a major UK supermarket’s premium dessert.

Aegg’s managing director, Jamie Gorman, said “although we’ve exhibited at Packaging Innovations before, this is the first time we’re launching two new services at the show. The two services actually reflect how Aegg is different to our competitors; the bottle launch demonstrates our ‘off-the-shelf’ range, whereas the complete glass jar service showcases our bespoke design to delivery service. Also, as a forward-thinking company, we’re able to launch new services and innovate relatively quickly, as we don’t have the ‘baggage’ of manufacturing products in-house. Instead, we create the product design, drawing on our own team’s expertise and partner with the right manufacturer for each product we work on, giving us and our clients ultimate flexibility.“

Aegg is a specialist food and beverage glass and plastics packaging company. Aegg packaging can be found in the premium shelves of all major UK supermarkets. All Aegg’s packaging is manufactured at accredited production sites. Its plastic products are manufactured in the European Union, which lends itself to short lead times and flexible delivery options. Its glass is manufactured in world class production factories with recognised accreditations. Aegg offers both a catalogue of ‘off-the-shelf’ products as well as a turnkey project management service, with its own in-house design team, ideal for more bespoke or creative packaging.
