Plant-based drink packaging solutions

As consumer demand for plant-based beverages grows, so does the need for innovative pack formats. Count on SIG for responsible carton and bag-in-box packaging for your plant-based drinks.

Driving product innovation in plant-based drinks

With increasing concerns about health and climate, consumer interest in both plant-based diets and plant-based lifestyles has driven a wave of product innovation in the plant-based beverage industry around the world. Plant-based products focus more on the environment than any other category, not only regarding the product itself, but also its packaging. SIG offers a variety of sustainable packaging options, meeting the need for a fully sustainable concept.

Growing fruitfully

More than one-quarter of consumers globally state that they buy dairy alternatives on grocery trips. (Innova category survey 2023). According to Euromonitor, plant-based drinks are projected to continue to  grow through the year 2028.

On the move

Almost 1 in 2 consumers globally say they sometimes replace meals with a quick bite. As consumers lean into their on-the-go lifestyles, our packaging allows them to take their favorite plant-based drinks wherever life takes them.

Sustainable solutions

Consumers are looking for brands offering sustainable products at a comparable price and making labeling easy to understand - be that for sustainable claims or recycling (Nielsen 2023). 

Easy dispensing

The growth of plant-based drinks doesn’t stop in retail. The convenience generation (gen Z and millennial's together) are looking for less cooking and more eating out options, without having to comprise with quality. As consumers look for dairy alternatives in coffee shops and restaurants, we offer dispensing solutions to help you serve these requests quickly, safely, and efficiently.
