In a move targeting growing consumer demand, Namaqua Wines, a leading South African producer, has selected SIG as its preferred supplier for carton packaging of its low-alcohol wine range.

This marks Namaqua’s first investment in its own aseptic carton filling technology, previously relying on co-packers.

The company has opted for SIG‘s Slimline Aseptic filling machine and production has already begun for Namaqua’s low-alcohol wines in SIG’s SlimlineBloc 1 litre cartons.

Namaqua believes this new packaging solution, combined with its modern low-alcohol wines, caters to evolving consumer preferences and strengthens its market position.

“By investing for the first time in our very own filling technology for aseptic carton packs, we aim to set the course for further growth, starting with our low alcohol wine range,” said Gabor Rapolthy, Head of Marketing and Analytics at Namaqua Wines.

“Our close partnership with SIG will help us to continue our robust growth, increase production volume, and expand our presence in the South African market even further.”
