What The Industry Says


Sept 2016 European production.

Smart Lid – the world leaders in smart packaging applications – appoints large-scale European thermoformer to manufacture its lids

September 22, 2016 - Sydney-based packaging firm appoints European based manufacturer Macpac SA for the production of its smart coffee lids. Macpac will be implementing the award winning disposable lids into its Greek facility later in the year for export throughout Europe and Russia.

The Smart Lid is a colour changing disposable beverage lid that warns of the hot contents by turning bright red and as the lid returns to the ‘cold’ colour as the hot drink cools. The technology draws attention to the hot liquid with the purpose of warning those around of the potential scald danger.

“Consumers of all hot drinks the world-over will be introduced to the Smart Lid over the next twelve months” Mr George Bayss confirmed. He also stated “The technology is not just suited to cafes, fastfood chains, and aged-care facilities, there are billions of units of cups and lids sold through supermarkets and retail outlets each year.”

Smart Lid is currently in the process of dramatically scaling up production output to meet the international wholesale foodservice enquiries.
