UNITED CAPS launches new Baby Food closure in conjunction with official plant opening
UNITED CAPS, a global industry leader in the design and production of high performance plastic caps and closures, has launched in mid-October a brand new closure for Baby Food, in conjunction with the official opening of its new Malaysian plant at Kulim.
The 127 SAFE-TE closure for Baby Food breathes new life into baby food safety and convenience with impenetrable security features and a premium gold colour appearance. This next-generation closure for infant nutrition will add to UNITED CAPS comprehensive range of snap caps and scoops for tins of infant milk powder which it has helped to develop over the past 80 years.
The new SAFE-TE line takes UNITED CAPS offerings for infant nutrition products to the next level, addressing the need in the Asian market for increased tamper evidence (TE) indicators and a more premium look. Like its popular PROTECSCOOP, SAFE-TE is a flip-top hinged closure whose innovative design allows easy preparation of infant feeding bottles.
127 SAFE-TE’s tamper-evident band presents highly visible evidence of any tampering with a unique ‘drop down’ lock that makes it incredibly obvious if the product has been opened. Thanks to the new flex band, it is literally impossible for a malevolent actor to remove the closure, tamper with the contents, and return the closure to its original condition.
UNITED CAPS’ award-winning anti-counterfeiting solutions add even greater levels of reassurance. SAFE-TE’s contamination-free foil-sealed chamber protects the included scoop until use, and an integrated hook keeps the scoop handy for further use.
SAFE-TE is offered in the 4 standard UNITED CAPS colours plus a premium gold, which offers the overall look of higher quality and standout shelf appearance that is a growing requirement in Asian markets. Advanced in-mould labelling options further enhance opportunities for brands to differentiate themselves.
One main advantage is that infant formula manufacturers that want to implement SAFE-TE will probably require minor or no changes to their existing capping/filling lines. 127 SAFE-TE is available in 127mm, with a 99 mm solution in the pipeline.
Production of SAFE-TE for the Asian market will start in Kulim in September 2020.
Luxembourg-based UNITED CAPS employs more than 600 people with sales turnover of €149 million (US$166 million) in 2018.
