Bag-in-Box Packaging

Vitop® Taps

The n°1 leader worldwide in taps for Bag-in-Box®

First designed in 1989 and produced at the Smurfit Kappa state-of-the-art facility in Alessandria, Italy, the Vitop® tap has revolutionised Bag-in-Box® packaging through a combination of its tamper-proof design and high oxygen barrier that significantly contributes to extend product freshness and shelf life.

Combining science, design and convenience, its success is also partly due to the fact that it is extremely easy to use.

With an impressive leak rate of only 1 in 85 million since its launch, the Vitop is now available in different colours for different applications: aseptic, water and dairy, edible oil and detergents.

The Vitop® Original is also available in a compact version, with the same technology and same level of quality
