HELSINGBORG, Sweden—Ecolean Inc., a manufacturer of stand-up pouches, continues to broaden its global presence with a new office in Dallas, TX.
During the past couple of years, Ecolean has expanded into several new markets in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Gaining a foothold in the growing markets in North and South America is a natural next step.
The North American market for stand-up pouches has experienced dramatic growth over the last five years. A key driver for liquid food producers to use such packaging is the increasing demand from consumers regarding food safety and convenience, and this has generated a lot of interest in Ecolean’s innovative cold-fill aseptic packaging system.
“There is a huge interest all over North and South America for new aseptic packaging solutions that emphasize safety and quality. Ecolean’s combination of environmental benefits and an attractive, safe and convenient stand-up package fits these markets perfectly,” says Ecolean managing director Andreas Jeppsson.
The excellent infrastructure and strategic location makes Ecolean’s new office in Dallas perfect for easy access to the U.S. market as well as the growing markets in Central and South America.
From the new office, Ecolean will be able to offer an even higher degree of service for both existing and future customers in the region. Ecolean’s current customers in the region include Alquería in Colombia and Danone in Argentina, both of which recently launched strategically important products using Ecolean’s innovative packaging solutions.
Ecolean develops and manufactures innovative packaging systems for the dairy and liquid food industry. Ecolean’s modern lightweight packaging is consumer convenience and environmental concern in one.
Ecolean is a global company with headquarters in Sweden. Founded in 1996, it has commercial activities in more than 30 countries China, Pakistan and Russia being the largest markets. Ecolean has 260 employees.
