Thun, Switzerland – Hoffmann, a global provider of high-quality packaging for infant-food, nutritional and wellbeing products, has upgraded its manufacturing facility in The Netherlands to include a dedicated tins production line for baby milk powder products. Now installed and operating in a segregated room for food-grade compliance, the new line is currently servicing a major customer in the baby milk sector.
Hoffmann manifests its tins supplies with BRC/IoP GS 6 and ISO 9001 production standards, applicable for major markets like the EU, US and China. The €4 million investment brings the capability to greatly expand its baby milk powder tins capacity by 118 Mio. pieces. Currently, the line is producing 99mm diameter cans with volumes of up to 400 grams (0.88 lbs.). The newly dedicated room also has space for a second production line to accommodate continued growth.
In addition, Hoffmann actively collaborates with partners in the roadmap of low-impact green steel packaging produced with green energy. The company offers a limited certified quantity for its tins in 2022, and is participating in a plant decarbonization program. This year’s initiative has been the installation of the 12’000 m2 solar power station on the factory roof which produces around 60% of the electricity need of the tinplate factory.
On a second pillar, the company’s groundbreaking RecyCan® portfolio which has just recently won the IPA Innovation Award 2021, essentially closes the loop on 100% recycled steel content in packaging which can also be 100% recyclable.
