Recyclable wine packaging

New Winepacks are described as 100-percent-recyclable, molded-fiber bottle holder/shippers. Wineries, store operators, wine collectors, retailers and others can buy directly from the co.’s website. The shippers are manufactured at and distributed from one location and shipped directly to the end user, circumventing often costly distribution channels, the co. states. They can be purchased as a kit consisting of 10 Winepacks, 10 box inserts and one shipping container and can be accessorized with tissue paper. With a universal part that serves as the top, bottom and middle insert (for 6-bottle configurations), the Winepacks are ISTA 3A-certified for use in shipping by UPS and FedEx, says the co. Available in 1-, 2-, 3, 4-, 6- and 12-stackable bottle configurations, they’re made from 100-percent-recycled newsprint and require no tooling investment. They offer easy packout as a molded part and have minimal warehousing requirements, as they’re nestable.,
