A French food company specialising in cereals, pulses, seeds, and dried mushrooms has revamped its packaging with bag solutions from Schur Star Systems, an exhibitor at AUSPACK 2019.

Sabarot Wassner has introduced new reclosable stand-up bags produced by Schur Star for its product lines. The newly-installed Schur Star equipment is part of a plant upgrade designed to add space and reduce complexity.

The Schur Star system offered fast and easy changeovers for small-batch products, according to Thomas Morin, industrial director at Sabarot Wassner.

“On the occasion of our 200th anniversary we decided to streamline our production process and to upgrade our packaging – and perfect unity was created when we were introduced to the Schur Star Concept,” he said.

“Not only did we simplify the packing process by introducing pre-made bags, we also increased production capacity, we reduced manning and, last but not least, we have updated and sophisticated the packaging solution for two of our brands – with more to come. We are happy, excited and cannot wait to bring the new packs on the market.”

More than 500 companies worldwide employ Schur Star solutions.
