Bring your ideas to production
Prove performance across the supply chain
Partner with Sidel to bring your beverage idea from concept to industrial reality. With Sidel's packaging expertise, you get a thorough understanding of the entire supply chain, from market trends and consumer tastes, to distribution challenges and local regulations. Our dedicated in-house packaging laboratories and technical know-how help you create a bottle that is lightweight, flexible and durable.
Before your bottle concept heads to production, Sidel's virtual bottle modelling and finite element analysis can assess its stability, rigidity and quality prior to industrial production. Liquid package interaction analysis uses microbiological, sensory and organoleptic analyses to assess the recipe, viscosity, carbonation and pH level to determine the most suitable package. Our feasibility studies and performance tests can also validate your bottle's performance across supply chain conditions - all the way from the factory floor to the consumer.
