Bag-in-Box® is gaining popularity among consumers who appreciate its long shelf-life after opening and its convenience. Thanks to the great technological features of the system, including quality bags, the Vitop tap, the world number one tap and the outer boxes, the quality/properties of the wine are kept during several weeks after opening. One of the trends of the wine and grape industry is the soar of premium wines in Bag-in-Box® packaging and Smurfit Kappa, has been relentlessly working on improving the quality of Bag-in-Box® wines.

In Argentina, Bag-in-Box® is very successful. Between 2014 and 2015, sales had been multiplied by 14. Today, it is very easy to find high-quality wine packed in Bag-in-Box® and the consumer recognizes all its advantages. In this very dynamic context, SITEVINITECH is an occasion to talk about our Bag-in-Box® solution and machines.The Semi automatic Filling Machine, the AP-1 manufactured in Argentina will be presented on the stand.

The Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box team will be at your disposal from October 27 to October 29, 2016 at stand n°235 in the Arena Maipú Hotel.
