Vitop Taps for quick liquid dispensing

Vitop® is a range of taps, closures, and dispensers for Bag-in-Box® packaging. Vitop® dispensing solutions are suitable for a wide range of liquids such as wine, milk, fruit juices, edible oils, syrups, and concentrates. The Vitop® tap and gland (which connects the bag and tap together), are therefore suitable for food contact.

Vitop® taps prevent air from entering the packaging during dispensing, which extends the shelf life of the liquid after opening for up to eight weeks perfect for the occasional consumer. Vitop® taps are tamper-proof and come with a tear strip that blocks the tap in a closed position until removed by the end-user, thereby ensuring product integrity. Once opened, the tap is easy to use and requires only a small amount of pressure to obtain a regular flow rate.
