It is definitely a segment that we need to keep on exploiting.”

The company allows customers to work with a single partner throughout the whole process of packaging liquid products. While Bag-in-Box® improves the shelf-life of the wine - thanks to high-quality barrier bags-, it is also a cost-saving alternative and undeniably an eco-friendly packaging with a low carbon footprint.
