Unilever has selected packs from SIG Combibloc to pack a range of its Unox soup brand traditional soup range in 1-litre aseptic carton packs for the first time.

Now available in the Netherlands in combiblocStandard 1,000ml carton packs, the new format is said to represent a “true innovation” on the Netherlands soup market, where most ready-to-eat soups have previously been available only in food metal cans and pouches.

“By providing quality soups in handy family packs, we are setting a new trend in the area of ready-to-eat soups,” Unilever states.

“The gentle aseptic process ensures unique product quality that you can taste. The process involves heating the soups only very briefly, which enhances the consistency and the colour of the soups.”

The Unox soup flavours available in 1-litre carton packs are tomato, chicken, pea, cream of tomato, Chinese tomato, vegetable and pumpkin varieties.

SIG Combibloc’s state-of-the-art filling machines for food products enable products containing solid chunks up to 25mm in size to be processed into aseptic carton packs. Individual fibres can be up to 40mm long, and the proportion of particulates can be as high as 50%.
