Ilip chooses Macfrut Digital to present “S.Pr.In.T.”, a new service for innovation

Tailor-made products and reduction of time-to-market: these are the distinctive features of S.Pr.In.T., acronym for “Special Products & Innovative Technologies”, the new Multi-purpose Department of Ilip that can create customised fruit and vegetable packaging solutions far more quickly than normal reference standards

Valsamoggia (BO), xx August 2020 – Ilip, the Ilpa Group company that leads the European market in the transformation of plastic raw materials and the supply of innovative packaging solutions for the fruit and vegetable and food industry, will be attending Macfrut Digital, the first ever virtual trade fair dedicated to the fruit and vegetable industry, which will be drawing exhibitors, buyers and visitors from across the globe from 8 to 10 September 2020. The Bologna-based company will be unveiling its range of fruit and vegetable packaging solutions and presenting “S.Pr.In.T”, its new Department focussed on innovation, customisation and rapid solutions.

The acronym of “Special Products & Innovative Technologies”, S.Pr.In.T. is an unprecedented service that will allow Ilip, on the basis of a specific need expressed by the customer, to develop tailor-made products through a rigorous management of the process (planning, development, costs, time) and the identification of the best technological platform, taking an Eco-Design approach with a clear focus on environmental sustainability (machines, moulds, design criteria and materials). In other words, Ilip can respond to a specific customer request for packaging a given product, thanks to S.Pr.In.T, undertaking to deliver the first serial orders within six weeks of final project approval. There are numerous, immediate advantages to this service, such as to allow for both the development of actual customised packaging and innovative products, developed on specific themes for the market and with distinctive characteristics, in terms of design, practicality, performance and environmental sustainability.

S.Pr.In.T. is a project that is set to radically change the approach taken with customers for the better” – comments Roberto Grandi, Product Manager ILIP and coordinator of Sprint – “Our customers are increasingly involved directly and all of them, individually, can become real partners in the development of innovative packaging solutions. In recent years, we have seen just how much our industry is changing, both in respect of technologies and materials. It is now time to offer the market all our experience and professionalism for solutions that are no longer mass produced and are instead increasingly adapted to the specific needs of the individual customer, individual market and individual product”.

Alongside the S.Pr.In.T. project, Ilip will also be using Macfrut Digital 2020 to present Sliptray, an unprecedented solution that combines 100% r-PET and cardboard, ensuring, at the same time, maximum visibility and communicability of the product (information and graphic contents can be printed easily). And Life+ will also be there, ILIP’s first active packaging, S.F.P., the Soft Fruit Protector for delicate round fruits, complete with patented impact-absorbing system. And, of course, “Smartripe”, the “smart packaging” designed for tropical fruits (avocado, papaya, mango) that can provide the consumer with information on the phases of fruit ripening, monitoring specific quality parameters through a tag without an incorporated battery, but which is sensitive to radio waves.

So see you soon at Macfrut Digital, this coming 8 to 10 September! To find out more:
