Sustainable Packaging Trends in Wine Packaging

11.12.17 // Heritage Paper

Wine makers must address a number of concerns when it comes to packaging, including appearance, protection and sustainability. As consumers become increasingly aware of the impact that packaging has on the environment, the need for sustainable packaging continues to grow. Below, find sustainable trends in wine packaging that provide environmentally-friendly solutions without sacrificing durability or effective branding.

  • Molded Fiber Shippers: These are excellent replacements for polystyrene and other rigid foams that are difficult to break down after disposable and not always easily recycled. Made from 100% post-consumer waste and recycled materials, molded fiber shippers offer the same protection and cushioning properties as other materials while providing a sustainable approach to wine packaging.
  • Corrugated Shippers: As one of the most recycled materials on the planet, corrugated wine shippers are strong, eco-friendly and extremely versatile. Corrugated surfaces offer increased space for high-quality printing and graphics, allowing wine makers to improve their image and message.
  • Paper Gift Bags: A bottle or a case of wine makes the perfect gift. Eco-friendly options for printed bags and boxes include paper materials made with high recycled content. These materials are strong and can produce high impact graphics.
  • Automation: When developing sustainable wine packaging strategies, materials are not the only big factors to consider. Automated packaging systems and processes help to reduce packaging material consumption and waste while increasing productivity. Wine packaging systems include fully automatic and semi-automatic stretch wrappers, inkjet printers and automatic case sealers.
