Smurfit Kappa will showcase its large range of packaging solutions and expertise for wine at the United Wine and Grape Symposium trade fair from January 27-28. The Unified Wine & Grape Symposium is a yearly trade fair, held in Sacramento, California, which hosts more than 700 booths, has 28 large vineyard and winery machinery areas, and includes a wide range of products related to the wine and grape industry. A large number of international representatives will also be present at the various sessions and exhibits.

Christophe de Carbonnières, General Manager Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box in Canada, says, “We have developed unique expertise in the domain of wine packaging in Bag-in-Box®. For instance, our Vitop® tap is the tap that is most used for Bag-in-Box® solutions. Its excellent oxygen barrier, zero leak rate and premium quality are the reason for its success and explain why it has become such an essential element of Bag-in-Box® solutions.”

Smurfit Kappa, one of the world’s leading paper-based packaging companies, 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 liquid products.

The Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box team will be at your disposal on the 27th and 28th of January 2016 at booth 1700 in the Sacramento Convention Centre.
