For the first time in the United States, beverages are being filled in aseptic carton packs displaying the label of the Forest Stewardship Council, according to SIG Combibloc.
Johanna Foods has launched Earth Wise brand juices and juice drinks in combiblocMini 125 and 150 milliliter carton packs from SIG Combibloc.
The FSC label verifies that the raw paperboard used to make the carton packs was manufactured using only wood fibers that can be proven to originate from responsibly managed forests certified according to FSC guidelines, or from other controlled sources managed in accordance with FSC standards.
More and more consumers are placing a high priority on healthy eating, and selecting foods that are as natural and unprocessed as possible, states SIG Combibloc. Increasingly, they are also seeking out more environmentally friendly packaging solutions. Johanna Foods, based in Flemington, N.J., is turning this into a total concept. And with its Earth Wise brand, the company is bringing out a range of premium juices and juice drinks in packages that are renewable and certified, and that originate from responsibly managed forestry: aseptic carton packs from SIG Combibloc, bearing the FSC label.
