Smurfit Kappa, an expert in complete bag-in-box packaging solutions, has renewed its partnership with the Concours International Wine in Box contest, an international competition that aims to promote high-quality wines in bag-in-box packaging formats.

The second edition of the contest will take place in Toulouse, France on March 18.

The first contest took place in March 2015 and was a huge success, drawing 250 wine producers from 12 countries. Among them, 74 wines from all over the world were rewarded “Best Wine in Box.” The concept is quite simple: each wine producer can participate and send in samples of their wine in bag-in-box formats, which are blind-tasted by a professional jury and by enlightened amateurs, who choose the best boxed wines.

The wine and grape industry has recently witnessed a soar in premium wines packaged in bag-in-box due to its popularity among consumers who appreciate its convenience and long shelf life after opening. Thanks to the great technological features of the system, including quality bags, the Vitop tap and outer boxes, the quality and properties of the wine are maintained for several weeks after opening.
