Loscam, a leading supplier of returnable packaging solutions, has released a new Intermediate Bulk Container for the transportation of liquids.
The IBC I8 is made from polypropylene and features a hygienic ‘bag in a box’ system which makes it easy for food and manufacturing companies to fill, transport and discharge product.
“We were aware that we needed to extend our product offering to cater for specific customer requirements, so we took the initiative to invest in the IBC I8,” said Loscam Senior Business Development Manager, Naz Miljanic.
“The IBC I8 allows for the safe transportation of acidic-based liquids such as fruit juices and vinegars. Customers in the food and manufacturing industries can be certain their products will remain in perfect condition from pick-up to delivery, without the risk of damaging the containers which they are transported in,” she added.
Loscam’s heavier duty IBC I6 already caters for more robust and non-acidic applications including dairy, oils, and liquid sugar.
Stringent food safety standards
nudie, one of Australia’s leading beverage companies is using the IBC I8 to transport its fruit juices across the country.
“Loscam has always understood what we require to help make our job easier, and reacts quickly to support us to meet the needs of our growing customer base,” said nudie General Manager Operations and Finance, Warren Douglas.
“As we work in a very fast moving environment, we’re always looking for opportunities to optimise our supply chain process. The IBC I8 is easy to deliver, empty and return, and importantly it upholds our stringent food safety standards,” Mr Douglas added.
Daniel Bunnett, Loscam executive vice president for Australia and New Zealand said the release of Loscam’s new lighter weight IBC I8 gives customers greater choice when choosing an IBC to suit their needs and further enhances the company’s service offering to food and manufacturing customers.
