Smurfit Kappa, renowned for its Bag-in-Box packaging solutions, recently expanded its range of packaging solutions for the fresh apple juice market.
Smurfit Kappa Bag-in Box developed the Thermo Bag to meet the specifications of hot filling, which is a commonly used processing method in the drinks industry. Bag-in-Box packaging is an attractive option for both consumers and producers because in addition to maintaining the product’s quality it is eco-friendly and cost-efficient.
The Thermo Bag is a barrier bag made from special coextruded PE film (MDPE for thermo-resistance and LLDPE for flexibility) and EVOH for oxygen barrier.
‘Thanks to their low carbon footprint and extended shelf life, our Bag-in-Box products offer a more sustainable choice of packaging for many industries. Smurfit Kappa relentlessly continues to develop higher performance materials for the drinks market,’ said Thierry Minaud, CEO of Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box.
‘The Thermo Bag brings a competitive advantage to producers and enhanced quality to consumers.’
