SIG launches U-shaped paper straw


SIG is a pioneer in the industry to offer a U-shaped paper straw to be used on carton packages. After introducing the world’s first straight paper straw for carton packaging in February 2019, SIG launched a U-shaped paper straw during Gulfood Manufacturing in Dubai, together with its joint venture partner SIG Combibloc Obeikan.
The new straw uses FSC™ certified paper and is now available globally. Abdelghany Eladib, Chief Operating Officer, SIG Combibloc Obeikan, said: “We are excited to launch the U-shaped paper straw... With plastic pollution being a major concern for businesses and consumers around the world, the food and beverage industry is under pressure to offer a viable and sustainable alternative. Carton packs are sustainable by nature. Our carton packs consist of 70-80% paperboard. With the introduction of the first paper straws for aseptic carton packs, SIG is once again leading the way in the industry."
