Polyoak Packaging (Pty) Ltd at PropakCape

Polyoak Packaging has launched a new division, Dairypack Cartons, specialising in the marketing and distribution of aseptic packaging systems in Southern Africa, in exclusive partnership with IPI.

IPI is a full system supplier that has been providing fully integrated filling machines, multilayer packaging and closure solutions for the aseptic packaging of liquid products in multilayer structure for over 35 years. The company forms part of Coesia, a group of innovation-based companies operating globally and headquartered in Bologna, Italy.

Dairypack Cartons has partnered with IPI to offer the market new and exciting carton shapes, to push the boundaries of the standard “carton brick”. It is a synergistic fit with a focus on packaging innovation and unrivalled customer service.

Polyoak has a long-established presence in the liquid food packaging market and, along with our core focus on customer service, and on producing high volume, high quality plastic packaging, we are confident that this partnership will drive innovation in the local carton market,” says Garron Boshoff, Executive for Dairypack Cartons.

Dairypack Cartons now offers a broad range of aseptic pack sizes (from 100 ml to 1000 ml) in different shapes, constituting 28 exciting options for customers to select from. The full system service includes fully integrated filling machines, multilayer packaging and matching closures, as well as the necessary downstream equipment for secondary packaging, to produce a finished product at the highest quality.

This is augmented by Polyoak’s technical support on the ground and its extensive distribution networks which are already well-established in the liquid food, juice and dairy markets.

Boshoff concludes, “Aseptic multilayer packaging is well suited for the dairy, fruit juice and liquid food markets, particularly in regions where the finished product is transported long distances or where refrigeration is a challenge. Dairypack Cartons looks forward to partnering with customers to explore and commercialise packaging opportunities to grow their business.”

A case in point is Greenway Farms, South Africa’s leading carrot farm, delivering more than 200 tonnes of Rugani brand carrots a day. The business started in 1992 as a small farmer growing different types of vegetables for the South African National Fresh Produce Market. In 2000, owners Vito Rugani and Vincent Sequeira decided to specialise in carrot farming and switch their vision to a large-scale production. Today 40% of carrots consumed in South Africa are Rugani.

Quality and health are Rugani’s pillars: juice contains 100% carrot juice and no preservatives.

To enhance its top-level product, Greenway Farms chose the appealing new SuperSlim aseptic carton from Dairypack Cartons. SuperSlim is a slender carton, impossible to miss on shelf due to its tall, streamlined shape. In addition, its patented King Twist cap on the 750ml – the largest opening ever on the aseptic carton market – makes it more convenient and easy to pour.
