Aptar’s high-performance Neo™ closure featured on HiPP’s new infant formula packaging launches in selected Asian markets

3 Sep 2021

Aptar Food + Beverage’s expertise is behind HiPP’s new infant formula packaging. Aptar’s solution features best-in-class technology with value-added benefits required by today’s parents and caregivers, including enhanced convenience and superior functionality.

HiPP, the largest processor of organic-biological raw materials worldwide, and one of the leaders in the global infant food market, utilized Aptar’s breakthrough thinking to re-design their infant formula packaging for specific Asian markets, including China and Hong Kong. Aptar leveraged its expertise and history of innovation in the development of a customized version of their Neo™ closure, to maximize parents’ experience when selecting and using HiPP infant formula.

Enhanced Consumer Experience

This new closure solution includes a tamper-evidence band to assure parents that the package has not been opened prior to purchase. The wide finger-recess, the lid diameter of 127mm, and an easily accessible scoop allow parents the convenience and safety of one-handed dispensing. The Neo infant formula closure features an audible “click” to reassure parents the package is fully closed after use while also reducing the risk of contamination.

Safety is the number one priority for any caregiver purchasing and preparing infant formula. Similar to all other Aptar infant nutrition closures, HiPP’s customized Neo closure is manufactured in a High-Care area, free of contamination to provide maximum product hygiene and safety.

Superior Production and Technology

The flexband design offers a low-application force on the production line that is ideal for mechanical or manual application and helps center the closure onto the can, whether metal or composite. The flexband helps protect the formula from insects and other possible contaminants. Aptar’s best-in-class technologies are validated by several independent laboratories. HiPP’s customized version of Neo allows for maximum stackability, helping save space in transport and in commercial and home storage. In addition, this solution is slightly taller than the standard Neo version to accommodate a wider range of measuring scoop sizes.

Aptar Food + Beverage leverages its knowledge and history of innovation to transform ideas into solutions that improve everyday life for people everywhere. Learn more about Aptar’s Neo closure or contact us.
