Scholle IPN releases bag-in-box packaging for beverages
Scholle IPN partnered with Georgia-Pacific’s corrugated packaging solutions to develop, test and certify three patent-pending, bag-in-box package formats for liquids according to Amazon’s stringent SIOC certification process. The package range includes a consumer-friendly dispensing tap design; a pour-out style solution; and a large-format dispensing tap design for large-volume use cases.
The bag-in-box packaging ranges in sizes from 2- to 23-L, and requires no exterior shrink wrapping as a part of the solutions. The e-commerce-friendly packaging is suitable for products, such as cleaning chemicals, laundry care chemicals, lawn care chemicals, automotive fluids, and beverages like wine and water.
Brent Haynam, commercial engineering manager for Scholle IPN, said, “In e-commerce, we’re using existing—oftentimes rigid—packages that can work fine for certain applications but not necessarily for this channel. With rigid packaging, distributors find that they need to add secondary and tertiary packaging to these products, which increases costs and doesn’t guarantee that the products are going to survive delivery.” Haynam continued with the environmental benefits of bag-in-box for ecommerce, “Switching to an efficient, flexible pack reduces the overall packaging weight, has a better product-to-package ratio, and, with this SIOC packaging, there is no need for wasteful, additional packaging in distribution.”
