GoodWest brews success with bag-in-box

Brewing beyond with bag-in-box

At SIG, we design solutions that help your business make the leap—to enter new markets, test out innovative formats, and launch new products confidently. 


GoodWest Industries started as a small dairy in Pennsylvania, USA, and has grown into a multi-national company specializing in shelf-stable dairy products, iced coffee, liquid sugar, iced tea, and nacho cheese. They've grown steadily over the last 15 years using SIG bag-in-box packaging but needed a new packaging solution for their line of coffee products. 

The challenge: low acid for a new market

GoodWest was ready to take the next step in production and market penetration and needed a reliable, high-speed, low-acid filler to meet customer demand.

The solution: Success through collaboration

Through in-depth planning sessions and development phases, we worked with GoodWest to define a strict set of criteria for a successful low-acid bag-in-box filler. We identified the following needs: 

  • High throughput
  • Sterilization capabilities 
  • Aseptic filling ability

The result: finding the right tool for the job

The SIG SureFill 30 low-acid aseptic bag-in-box filler increased GoodWest's production capabilities by nearly 75%. The filler is versatile and allows for filling through different spouts and can work with several SIG fitments, allowing for future product and market expansion.


Here's what the SureFill 30 can do:

It's safe

  • Innovative bag feed and sterilization system provides a zero bacteria environment
  • The filling process leaves the quality of products uncompromised

It's economical

  • Maximizes line time with integrated fault management and tracking features
  • Lowers shipping costs without the need for refrigeration during transportation

It preserves flavor
