The Pouch-Up® of Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box Wins at Worldstar Packaging Awards

The Pouch-Up®, already winner of the Starpack in the UK and holder of the Packaging Oscar, keeps on reaping the prizes. The World Packaging Organization (WPO) has decided to grant to Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box the Worldstar Packaging Award 2011/2012 in the category of packaging beverages for the successful Manchester Drinks cocktails Mojito and Cosmopolitan.

It is a very nice recognition for this innovative packaging which keeps gaining ground on the market of wine, cocktails and juices. Indeed, the WorldStar Competition is, since 1970, the flagship event of the WPO.  This year, the jury made up of 23 representatives of WPO and a representative of the International Organization of the Packaging Press considered the candidacy of 243 products from 32 countries in seven different categories. The jury compared the registered products with other similar packagings of the market and rewarded those they considered superior in terms of performance or innovation.

The Pouch – Up® convinced the jury with its attractive design, his film performance, ease of use and its low carbon footprint. Available in 1.5 L and 3 L, all of its surface formats can be printed in high resolution flexo allowing a perfect identification of the brand on the shelf. The innovative film and the Vitop compact® tap ensure the barrier to oxygen and, therefore, a perfect quality and a long conservation of the drink after the opening. The Pouch – Up® responds to the growing needs of nomadic consumption: lightweight, unbreakable and very convenient to use. Thanks to the Vitop compact® tap, positioned on the packaging, the pouring is easy and safe.

It is an economic, convenient and environment-friendly packaging which confirms the efforts of Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box in the field of innovation and service for the wine, spirits and other beverage markets.
