SIG to Unveil On-the-Go Packaging at Gulfood Manufacturing

Swiss packaging company SIG will be unveiling SIG DomeMini, its uniquely different on-the-go carton bottle, at the upcoming Gulfood Manufacturing in Dubai.

The small-size carton pack, which offers all the convenience of a plastic bottle and the sustainability benefits of a carton pack, will be showcased for the very first time in the Middle East and Africa region.

The carton packs are designed to captivate, encouraging consumers to rethink their packaging choices, especially when it comes to sustainability. Beverage manufacturers also have the opportunity to choose a solution that puts significantly less plastic on the market and caters to the growing ‘paperization’ trend.

SIG DomeMini offers excellent ergonomic benefits to various consumers, such as travellers and commuters. The large, centrally positioned closure offers a drinking experience similar to using a traditional bottle. It is easy to open and reclose, ensuring safe storage in bags and ready to drink, whenever needed. The launch of the small format SIG DomeMini carton bottle is part of SIG’s journey to create packaging for better.

Designed for recycling, SIG DomeMini is mainly made from FSC-certified paperboard and produced using 100% renewable electricity. With the high share of forest-based renewable material as well as a sophisticated resource-efficient and space-saving design, SIG DomeMini comes with a number of environmental benefits compared to alternative packaging options like plastic bottles.

At Gulfood Manufacturing, SIG will also present the SIG DomeMini 12 Aseptic filling machine, capable of aseptically filling 12,000 packages per hour, in seven volume sizes ranging from 180 to 350 ml, all within a rapid 15-minute volume change. This not only maximizes efficiency and flexibility, but also provides an excellent return on investment for beverage manufacturers.


Abdelghany Eladib, President & General Manager – MEA at SIG, comments on the launch, “We are thrilled to be part of Gulfood Manufacturing this year, where we will unveil the new SIG DomeMini. Our presence at the ‘Smarter Future’ gathering reflects our commitment to packaging solutions that prioritise sustainability. This innovative product is an exciting step forward – particularly amidst the urgent global challenges posed by pressing environmental issues – providing consumers and beverage manufacturers an opportunity to embrace sustainable packaging alternatives.”

Christoph Wegener, Chief Markets Officer at SIG Group, says, “The market for on-the-go beverages continues to grow and offers immense potential. By combining convenience with sustainability, SIG DomeMini sets the stage and offers a new drinking experience for consumers, who can now enjoy their favourite drink on the move while helping to reduce plastic waste.”

Gulfood Manufacturing will be held at Dubai World Trade Centre from 7-9 November, 2023.
