A major manufacturer of spices, herbs and flavourings has moved to induction cap sealing to improve the preservation of its products.
McCormick, a Fortune 1000 company, now seals some of its biggest brands – Schwartz, Vahiné and Ducros – with Enercon’s induction sealing technology.
“Our products were initially sealed with a tamper sleeve,” said Jean-Michel Allier, Engineering Project Manager at McCormick France.
“We moved to an induction sealed foil to improve the shelf life of our products – the colours and aromas are preserved by the foil seal,” he added.
Speaking about the importance of a hermetically sealed product, Mr Allier said: “As our merchandise is a consumer product, it is critical that the containers are sealed.
“The sealed cap guarantees that the flavour of our product is preserved.”
McCormick packages its products into glass containers – a material that can be difficult to seal. But thanks to Enercon’s advanced sealing equipment, a solution was found.
Speaking about Enercon, Mr Allier said: “The company was proactive throughout this development. Enercon agreed to perform many tests and has developed specific sealing heads for our glass bottles.
“I strongly recommend Enercon.”
