Amul Dairy has commissioned two advanced SIG filling machines for aseptic carton packs in its Kheda Satellite Dairy plant in Khatraj, Gujarat. With the commissioning of the two additional SIG filling machines, an SIG Slimline 12 Aseptic and an SIG XSlim 24 Aseptic, the total number of SIG filling lines at Amul has now reached five.

Dr  Amit Vyas, Managing Director of Amul Dairy, said, “The dairy market is currently undergoing a massive transition. The emerging market trends and changing consumer needs make it essential to expand our offering and leverage excellent technologies. The flexibility offered by SIG’s filling lines to fill packages of different volumes on the same filling line makes them an excellent choice for Amul Dairy to meet the growing market needs. The commissioning of two additional state-of-the-art SIG filling lines at Amul Dairy’s Kheda Satellite Dairy plant will help to enhance our packaging capacity and tap into markets with different price points with new product lines.”

The SIG Slimline 12 Aseptic can fill 12,000 SIG Slimline carton packs per hour and makes it possible to switch between four volumes (from 500ml to 1,100ml) on the same filling line. The aseptic cartons can be fitted with a closure, a perforation or, in the 500 ml version, a straw.

The SIG XSlim 24 Aseptic filling line offers the flexibility to fill nine different volumes (from 80ml to 200ml) on the same filling line. It can fill 24,000 SIG XSlim carton packs per hour, which come with a straw opening.

Amul will fill white milk in 200 ml and 1,000 ml carton packs. Various flavors of its unique fruit and whey drink offered under the brand name Amul Tru, will be available in 150 ml aseptic carton packages.

Samuel Sigrist, CEO at SIG, said, “We continue to build a strong collaboration with Amul. The commissioning of further SIG filling machines is another milestone in our partnership and a key enabler to drive Amul’s vision of bringing a wide range of products to market and to best meet rapidly evolving market trends.”

We are dedicated to providing cutting-edge technologies that will enable our partner Amul Dairy to reach more and more consumers in India.”
