(packagingnews) -- Packaging
giant Tetra Pak and Greencroft Bottling Company, part of the Lanchester Wine
Group, are claiming a UK first after packaging wine in cartons.
was revealed at the London International Wine Fair. Both firms state that
the UKТs first facility for packaging wine in cartons will "bring benefits
across the industry".
Last month, Tetra Pak revealed to Packaging News
that it was eyeing food and wine markets and would be working with Durham-based
wine bottling firm Greencroft.
Greencroft Bottling Company managing
director Mark Satchwell said: "The Tetra Pak carton is a really credible
alternative to the glass bottle. The materials are much lower cost and the final
product is extremely space-efficient, meaning more products can be merchandised
on-shelf, maximising return per square foot of selling space".
