Renowned for its products with uniquely natural sparkling water properties, Ferrarelle Società Benefit produces beverages with sensitive ingredients. The manufacturer sources water from the mountains located near its production plant in Boario; this strategic location allows the company to produce bottled mineral water with health-enhancing properties.
With the launch of the new Vitasnella ‘Le Linfe’ product line, Ferrarelle Società Benefit required an aseptic system that could ensure a high-end taste experience, product integrity and long shelf life while also handling two different formats, 0.5 litres and 1.25 litres, to meet increasing product demands.
Ferrarelle Società Benefit turned to Sidel, given its extensive expertise in aseptic technology, to produce its new range of functional water and teas. It chose to install Sidel’s Aseptic Combi Predis, utilising the dry preform decontamination technology which ensures product integrity and a longer shelf life for sensitive products without using preservatives.
By installing Sidel’s Aseptic Combi Predis, Ferrarelle Società Benefit could produce its new product range with full production sterility, optimum food safety and product quality with easy operation. Its new aseptic line is capable of handling two different formats, 0.5 litres and 1.25 litres, and achieves a production rate of 18,000 bottles per hour. Additionally, the manufacturer was able to ensure that its new range of water and teas had a high-end taste experience, as well as a product that would last on the shelf.
"As our only line producing sensitive beverages, it was crucial that we had an aseptic system that could ensure the highest level of product safety and integrity. We trusted Sidel to install our first aseptic line in the company due to its extensive expertise on total food safety."
