Smurfit Kappa will exhibit its range of packaging solutions for wine and fruit juice at the Intervitis Interfructa trade fair held in Stuttgart, Germany from November 27th to 30th.
The International technology trade fair for wine and is held every two years. It is regarded as the leading international event thanks to its combination of a trade fair, a congress and machine demonstrations and showcases the entire process chain from cultivation through to marketing on an exhibition area of 60,000 square metres.
Smurfit Kappa is one of the few players offering a complete Bag-in-Box® packaging system solution. From bags and taps, through to boxes and accessories, to complete filling lines, the company allows customers to work with a single partner throughout the whole process of packaging wine and juice in Bag-in-Box® solutions. Besides the complete Bag-in-Box® system, a special emphasis will be put on the self-standing flexible packaging Pouch-Up®.
Florence Decock, Pouch-Up® product manager at Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box, explains, “The Pouch-Up® is a young, modern and innovative free-standing packaging for wine and juice since we have developed special technology for hot filling and aseptic filling. It is perfectly suitable for the actual consumer thanks to its numerous advantages: a long shelf-life, 6-8 weeks with guaranteed quality and organoleptic properties of the juice thanks to the film and the Vitop® tap technology. It is a user-friendly packaging solution - very easy to open, to use, to handle and serve; and last but not least, the Pouch-Up® is environmentally-friendly, with a carbon footprint equivalent to only 20% of a traditional glass bottle.”
The Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box team will be at your disposal throughout the fair – from 27 to 30 November – in the Messe Stuttgart, Halle 3, Stand 3B71.
