Aptar Food + Beverage has a new closure for private label suppliers and brands to consider. The 2" Ultra Extra Large Valve (XLV) is the newest expansion to its inverted closure product line with the company’s SimpliSqueeze technology.
The new product is Aptar’s first stock closure offering with a large valve designed to dispense thick liquid products such as guacamole, salsa, cream cheese and peanut butter. The 2” Ultra XLV can be used with a rigid bottle or paired with an inverted flexible pouch to ensure a clean and easy dispense with every squeeze.
"We are excited to showcase the new 2” Ultra XLV closure to the industry, as well as leading food brands and co-packers that can benefit from this innovative technology,” shared Susan DeGroot, marketing director at Aptar. “Our extra-large flow control valve allows consumers to experience the ultimate in clean, controlled, convenient dispensing in new, thicker or high viscosity product categories. All with the proven technology our easy-to-use SimpliSqueeze valve has delivered to consumers for more than 25 years.”
The 2” Ultra XLV comes in a standard neck finish allowing it to be used on a variety of packaging materials. Additionally, the one-handed flip top with SimpliSqueeze can be tailored based on individual product requirements across a wide range of product viscosities depending on the type of packaging.
“With our new 2” Ultra XLV, we understand that it’s not a one size fits all approach,” added DeGroot. “We take each product in-house, test and evaluate it to make sure the valve is performing at the highest level to ensure a consistent clean, controlled dispense with every squeeze. Aptar’s market-proven flow control technology has enhanced the consumers’ dispensing experience for over 25 years and is now opening this experience up to new categories for years to come.”
