Liquid Packaging Material And Design Solutions

Bag-in-Tube® is an innovative packaging concept for liquids such as wine, spirits, olive oil, or detergents. Bag-in-Tube® is comprised of a composite cardboard tube with a tinplate lid and base. The tube contains a double-layered bag, and liquid is dispensed through a high performance Vitop® tap. Once opened, the Bag-in-Tube® protects the product from oxygen, offering extended shelf life perfect for the needs of the occasional consumer.

Ideal for gift and promotional markets, the tube has excellent shelf presence and customer appeal at point of sale. The tube can be high quality printed to your exact requirements and embossed or foil blocked as required. Lids and bases can be produced in any color and embossed to further enhance product presentation. A soft plastic handle can be attached to the lid to provide ease of transportation from the point of sale to the customer’s home.
