MEDIA RELEASE

SIG Combibloc Group AG ("SIG")

SIG wins major contract in Germany


SIG has been chosen by Hochwald, one of the largest German dairy
cooperatives, as its preferred partner for a new dairy production site.

Hochwald's project includes the construction of a new plant with capacity to
process more than 800 million litres of milk per annum. Milk will be
processed and sold as UHT milk, cream, condensed milk and flavoured milk for
the European market and for export to China, the Middle East and Africa,
starting in 2022.

SIG will supply 15 new aseptic filling machines for the new plant, which
will be based in Mechernich, Germany. SIG's flexible filling technology will
enable Hochwald to offer a variety of aseptic packaging solutions in five
different carton formats, with a wide range of volumes, closures and straw
solutions.

Thorsten Oberschmidt, COO at Hochwald, commented: "Our close cooperation
with SIG will make a significant contribution to our major European
greenfield UHT project, providing the most flexible and innovative packaging
solutions of their kind. In a competitive market environment, efficiency and
flexibility in our production is as crucial as it's ever been."

Martin Herrenbrück, President & General Manager Europe at SIG, commented:
"We are honoured to be selected as a preferred supplier by one of the
leading dairies in Europe. Our strong partnership with Hochwald started back
in 1994 and to this day we continue to adapt and change together, creating a
benchmark for the optimised filling of UHT milk."
