Ramseier invests in preserving resources


Sursee LU - Ramseier will be putting a new PET filling line into operation at its Sursee site later this year. The modern system is intended to reduce the beverage manufacturer's water consumption and product loss. Sales at Ramseier fell only marginally in 2020 despite the coronavirus pandemic.


In the fall of this year Ramseier will be putting a new PET filling line into operation at its Sursee site, the drinks manufacturer has announced in a press release. This aims to reduce water consumption and product loss at the traditional Lucerne company. “The aim of Ramseier Suisse AG is to make replacement investments to ensure that production processes are more sustainable by preserving resources”, explains CEO Christoph Richli in the press release. “The new plant allows us to pursue this aim”, he adds.


In addition, Ramseier is planning to expand its range with the addition of a reduced-sugar Sinalco variant during the current financial year. Ramseier Milde Moscht will be available in a 330ml non-returnable glass bottle. For this purpose, an additional fermentation tank is to be installed on the premises of the firm’s proprietary brewery by the end of 2021.


In the 2020 financial year, Ramseier processed just under 50,000 tons of cider apples and pears. Gross sales at the company fell by 2.9 percent year on year to 151.8 million Swiss francs. A high sales volume was posted for the retail sales channel, Ramseier states in the press release. However, due to restaurant closures on account of the coronavirus pandemic, sales in the gastronomy sub-market were down on the previous year.
