History in Argentina
Over the years, soda siphons in Argentina (returnable glass bottles and home service) had a very dynamic development; they even became the most widely consumed packaged beverage "per capita".
The most diverse reasons contributed to this phenomenon, starting with the great virtue of the siphon to maintain the product with constant gasification, even in a partially empty container.
It also helped the consolidation of the product cultural reasons such as our natural inclination to make family gatherings, where the combination of siphons and wine became the drink par excellence, the must in every home table.
Another important contribution, it was the method of direct distribution to families, which made the figure of “soda man”, a familiar character, who remained in time for the great convenience that the service represented.
Evolution in Argentina
The product diversification caused by globalization and commercialization in big markets, in addition with the sharp decline in wine consumption, required an adequate update of the product and way of reaching the consumer.
Some of the reasons for the creation of Siphon Disposable SIDES, Argentina were preserving the core benefit of the container (trap), as the stability of gasification and new convenient features in packaging for market opportunities.
In an international level, we saw a clear opportunity to create a distinctive new packaging in carbonated products industry. In markets where there was no history of returnable siphon, the siphon itself is a distinctive package.
As the package is obtained from the same bottles and existing production lines of international bottlers, creating a new package by replacing only the cover from the bottle, makes the idea a low cost possible project. Consequently, doors open in the international market of soft drinks to our product Disposable Siphon SIDES.
