Guala Closures Group has recently released its new line of ROPP (roll on pilfer proof) screw caps sporting a TE (tamper Evident) band, the result of more than one year of dedicated firm research.
"Even if the concept is quite simple, the technology behind it certainly isn’t," explains Marketing Manager Anne Seznec. "We’ve introduced a coloured plastic ring that appears in the narrow space between the glass bottle neck and aluminium skirt once the screw cap has been opened."
A slightly different aesthetic in the tamper evident area differentiates this new closure from the standard one, but the application, glass finish and pour, remains unaffected by the new technology and the price difference will be negligible. A bespoke design service is available for this and the other closures produced by Guala Closures Group.
"Wine counterfeiting is a growing concern," - Seznec comments- “some experts estimate that up to 5% of fine wine sold today is fake. Traditionally, these producers have shied away from alternative closures, but if they can help provide a solution to what is a very real problem then they have to be worth considering." Guala Closures expects an immediate take-up on this product and Seznec also anticipates that there will be interest from the fine spirits sector also.
