Thailand’s first Sidel aseptic bottling line
General Beverage Company to serve whole southeastern region with high-speed aseptic line from Sidel
High-technology co-packer for entire ASEAN region
General Beverage wanted a supplier capable of supplying a safe turnkey solution to produce ranges of high quality beverages. The Thai producer chose to partner with Sidel and imported nearly all of the equipment needed for the line. Consequently, Sidel designed, manufactured, supplied, installed and commissioned the whole bottling line to produce various ranges of high quality beverages like coffee, tea, milk and fruit juices.
Solutions for aseptic products
The plant is being built in three distinct stages. The first stage now boasts the country's fastest production line of PET aseptically filled bottles. The line comprises: a Sidel SBO20 Universal2eco blow moulder equipped with the Ecoven to reduce energy consumption; the first-ever Sidel aseptic filler to handle production of particulates size 5 mm x 5 mm x 5 mm connected to an Aidlin Eco cap feeder. It has a production capacity of 40,000 bph and is the most advanced, eco-friendly, manufacturing system in the region. The line can handle high volumes of quality beverages of low or high acidity, including the most sensitive products.

Highest quality, hygiene and food safety with optimum efficiency
This is the very first Sidel aseptic line of any kind to be installed in Thailand, where the tropical conditions make aseptic production even more challenging. Being new to the industry, the decision to bottle sensitive products was a bold move as it necessitates having the knowledge required to maintain standards of food safety to protect the integrity of the products being bottled. However, by working closely with Sidel and drawing on the company's experience in developing solutions for aseptic production, the challenges were readily overcome.
