Self-sealing cap aims to advance hygienic milk dispensing

Liquibox has announced the launch of the Liquibox Universal Self-Sealing Cap, in response to growing demand for closed dairy dispensing systems in the foodservice industry.

The firm, which is now part of SEE (Sealed Air), said that using this innovation in closed milk bag-in-box and bag-in-tray systems represents a ‘significant advancement’ in milk dispensing technology, reducing food waste and providing ‘enhanced hygiene, extended freshness, and streamlined cost efficiency’ compared to pour-out packaging solutions such as bottles and cartons.

The Liquibox Universal Self-Sealing Cap is a self-closing fitment for 2-20 litre professional dairy dispensing systems. It is designed for numerous applications such as milk dispensers and frothers for bean-to-cup coffee machines, smoothie and frappe dispensers, and soft-serve ice cream dispensers. The solution is Cyclos-certified for recycling within existing PE streams.

The dispensing fitment is suitable for fresh, ESL, hot fill, and aseptic processes, and integrates with existing bag-in-box equipment.

“As connected dairy dispense systems gain momentum in Foodservice outlets, the shift from pour-out cartons and bottles is evident,” said Arjan van Waarden, Liquibox EMEA business development manager. “Responding to our customers’ needs, we’ve engineered the Liquibox Universal Self-Sealing Cap to be backward compatible with all dairy equipment, embodying Liquibox’s dedication to customer-driven innovation.”
