Ecocap’s: different and sustainable with TopSyl
Hygiene, safety, recyclability, elegance and communication: these are the elements of TopSyl, the Ecocap’s patent adopted by San Bernardo for mineral water and canned soft drinks, also produced for third parties.
San Bernando, a subsidiary of the Montecristo Group, present on the mineral water and soft drink markets, has adopted the eco-sustainable TopSyl capsules, an international patent by Ecocap’s.
Guaranteeing the hygiene of the can packaging and distinguishing itself from similar offers by using all the elements of the can as marketing communication tools: these are the objectives that prompted San Bernardo to choose Topsyl, the Ecocap’s sealing system.
Another element that has strongly influenced the choice is sustainability: Topsyl is a heat-sealed aluminum disk, without the use of glues, to the advantage of hygiene, economy and total recyclability of the materials. 100% sustainable!
AT THE BASIS OF CHOICE OF TOPSYL
San Bernardo in 2021 decided to adopt the packaging of aluminum cans in the sleek format to be green friendly and to give the consumer a further choice by making available a light pack, easy to differentiate and recycle.
The choice of the can recalls a sort of visual and tactile elegance, precisely recalling a glass. Furthermore, the product with Topsyl, in the perception of the consumer, brings it closer to that class of drinks made up of sparkling wines and wines which justifies a higher cost.
To all this is added the possibility of communicating limited editions, sporting events, competitions and commercial promotions. The aluminum can with Topsyl has in fact been greatly appreciated in the Horeca channel, which San Bernardo has chosen as a privileged reference market.
THE MACHINE FOR CAN PACKAGING
The Ecocap’s packaging machine is in place at the Ormea establishment, in the province of Cuneo, where most of the production is developed.
The machine was inserted into the production line using the lease (one of the formulas provided by Ecocap’s) and binding San Bernardo only to purchase the personalized capsules.
The machine for packaging customizable beverages in cans was developed for the largest production lines of breweries and producers of soft drinks and mineral waters.
Rotary machine with 60 stations with an hourly productivity of 20,000 cans, it fits very easily at the end of the line, without distorting the production layout.
