Sustainable aseptic packaging solution for sensitive food products

The cornerstone of this collaboration is IBA’s flagship product, the IBA Tainer aseptic IBC. This patented 1000-liter container, designed for liquid food transport, incorporates a protective cage and a disposable flexible bag. Not only does it present a cost-effective substitute to conventional containers, but it also ensures an aseptic environment, eliminating the need for resource-intensive washing and sterilization processes. Beyond its economic advantages, the IBA Tainer significantly reduces energy consumption throughout the entire value chain, aligning with Aran’s commitment to sustainability.

The acquisition of IBA positions Aran as a key player in the European market, specifically Germany, where the bag-in-box market generates substantial revenue. This move enables Aran to export IBA’s sustainable products beyond Germany, leveraging its global network and the innovative IBA Tainer.

As Aran and IBA’s combined capabilities and sustainable technology converge, the industry can anticipate substantial growth in the years to come. This acquisition not only advances the fruit preparation sector but also underscores the collective commitment towards sustainable packaging solutions.
