Aegg launches two new services at Packaging Innovations 2016: Beer Bottle and Complete Glass Jar Solutions

Aegg officially launched its new glass bottle product ranges at Packaging Innovations this year in Birmingham, UK.

The company shared space with Tecnocap, the worldwide metal closures specialist, to provide an overview for integrated closing solutions as part of its already established packaging offering. Alongside the launch, Aegg showcased its recent glass and plastic jar designs, including a unique 540ml glass sauce jar, 250ml sauce glass jar and a new injection stretch blow moulded recyclable plastic 'PET' pot, known as the 'milk churn'.

Packaging Innovations sees the official launch of Aegg's beer bottles, an extension to the firm's already established food packaging lines. The standard bottles became available in February 2016, with bespoke design options available through Aegg's in-house product design team to be available later in the year, in line with the company's unique turnkey project management solutions.

Aegg also launched an all-embracing glass jar service at the show, by offering integrated packaging solutions thanks to the presence of Tecnocap. It will mean that not only can Aegg offer our existing bespoke jar packaging solution from developing a product from initial design concept right through to managing manufacturing and setting up the supply chain; Aegg can now also offer a capping referral solution through Tecnocap’s know-how in metal closing systems, making the company the 'go-to' brand for complete jar packaging for both large and small projects.

The stand featured Tecnocap's metal closures including the company's special lithographic, embossed, coatings and colour options. The Tecnocap Group is the third largest worldwide player in the production of metal closures for glass jars, bottles and plastic containers which are utilized in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and beauty industries.

Tecnocap's UK and Ireland Sales Manager, Jeff Edwards, said "We are delighted about this experience and confident that our presence at Aegg’s stand, focused on packaging innovations, will give a chance to discuss any cap and capping machinery related queries visitors to the stand may have."

The Aegg Packaging Innovations stand also impressed visitors with recent glass and plastic jar designs, such as the unique 540ml glass sauce jar, 250ml glass sauce jar, and plastic 'milk churn' yogurt pot, all of which are currently on supermarket shelves. The 540ml glass sauce jar, which Aegg calls the 'subtle dog bone', is taller than existing ones on the market and not so rounded at the top, giving it better shelf space and a more striking appearance. The unique and innovative 'milk churn' design has a brim-full capacity of 135ml and was developed by using a lightweight recyclable plastic, PET, for a major UK supermarket's premium dessert.

Jamie Gorman, managing director at Aegg, said "Although we’ve exhibited at Packaging Innovations before, this is the first time we've launched two new services at the show. The two services actually reflect how Aegg is different to our competitors; the bottle launch demonstrates our 'off-the-shelf' range, whereas the complete glass jar service showcases our bespoke design to delivery service. Also, as a forward-thinking company, we're able to launch new services and innovate relatively quickly, as we don't have the 'baggage' of manufacturing products in-house. Instead, we create the product design, drawing on our own team's expertise and partner with the right manufacturer for each product we work on, giving us and our clients ultimate flexibility."
