SIG’s on-the-go combismile carton pack enters the French market for the first time this month, with a new fruity-flavored range for adults and kids from natural mineral water brand Volvic.

The company said the new products are easy to grip and use, and also include a single-action and re-closable combiGo closure for convenient opening, closing and secure bag storage.

Nathalie Abrahamian-Deudon, vice-presidente marketing at Danone Waters France, said, "We are delighted to be the first in France to use the new combismile carton pack for our two new flavored drink ranges Volvic Kids and Volvic Zest+. This packaging is perfectly adapted to the new consumption habits of the French and the move towards more mobile and active lifestyles. This innovation is part of our approach to offer more responsible and sustainable packaging, with the ambition to eliminate the use of virgin plastic from our packaging by 2025.”

With an output of 24,000 carton packs per hour, SIG’s CFA 1824 filling machine provides flexibility and speed, with the option to fill five different volume sizes: 200ml; 250ml; 300ml; 330ml and 350ml. Volvic’s new functional water range will be available in combismile 250ml and 330ml carton packs.

SIG is 100% FSC-certified, which means all paperboard comes from responsibly managed forests and other controlled sources; combismile is also fully recyclable.

The commercial roll-out of combismile will be extended to Germany, Great Britain, Italy and Japan, and further ramped up in France, after July 2021.
