Iraqi National for Food belongs to the Iraqi National Group of Companies, which is one of the country’s leading manufacturing, trade and transportation groups. Founded in 2019, Iraqi National for Food is recognised for its high-quality nutritional products. To meet a growing demand for bottled water, the company recently initiated a new greenfield project in Baghdad that required a high-speed PET water packaging line.
Sidel covered the entire process from packaging design to equipment supply, including a complete PET water packaging line featuring a turnkey Sidel Combi solution.
The line features a Sidel EvoBLOW blower fitted with an AirEco2 double air-recovery option to reduce the required volume of compressed air by 35%, a Sidel Matrix Filler SF100 to provide a smaller filling environment with fewer chemicals and less water used during external cleaning and an air filtration system in the filling process to keep the environment safe while ensuring high product quality.
The 48,000 bph line operates with 96% line efficiency, ensuring high quality and sustainability standards which are of utmost importance to Iraqi National for Food. The installation and start-up took only six weeks and the first sellable bottle was produced and launched on the market extremely quickly.
"“We are very happy that we chose Sidel for our complete water line project, in particular during the pandemic. The Sidel team provided great consultancy and conducted efficient execution so our product could be launched in a short period of time.”"
