Smurfit Kappa has expanded its range of Bag-in-Box packaging solutions by launching a Thermo Bag. Bag-in-Box is a disposable packaging solution suitable for liquid, semi-liquid food and non-food products.
The Thermo Bag has been designed to adhere to the specifications of a hot filling processing method involving pressing, filtering, pasteurising, heating and filling the product at a high temperature to enable sterilisation. The product is then immediately cooled for preservation and taste.
Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box CEO, Thierry Minaud, said: “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 and Smurfit Kappa relentlessly continues to develop higher performance materials for the drinks market.”
