SternMaid will present its portfolio for blending, processing and filling foods, ingredients and dietary supplements in powder form, at Health ingredients Europe 2018, November, 27-29, Frankfurt, Germany.
At the exhibition, the company will emphasize the options it offers for filling and packaging goods for industrial consumers and the retail trade; it will also demonstrate its blending lines and multifunctional fluidized bed technology that enables specific optimization of product attributes. In the newly constructed Plant 2, additional lines have been installed to complement SternMaid’s existing portfolio and capacities.
In its new Plant 2 for retail packs, SternMaid will manufacture products for end-consumers. A recent addition to the small-pack lines is a new filling line for single-portion sachets. Besides this, the company can fill products into stand-up pouches, block-bottom or tubular bags with or without folding boxes as outers, plastic tubs, and traditional spiral-wound cardboard cans. For the latter, a newly developed variant from the Sonoco company, with an aluminum-free interior coating, is now available. With regard to cans, especially, SternMaid has a wide range and offers quality packs in different shapes and sizes to suit the particular service – for example for food supplements and dietetic products, sports products or functional food. At HiE, visitors can examine sample containers on the exhibition stand and inform themselves of the advantages of the different pack types and the whole range of services offered by SternMaid in the field of contract filling.
Mark Riemer, commercial manager of SternMaid, says: “Nowadays, contract manufacturing demands specialists that can offer an all-round service. Co-packing, especially, is being used by more and more companies. One of the reasons is that product life cycles are becoming shorter all the time. On the one hand, products have to reach market maturity faster, and on the other hand market conditions change very quickly. We can meet this demand with a wide choice of pack sizes and shapes and save our customers having to invest in plant, premises and personnel of their own.”
