Paper-based packaging provider Smurfit Kappa has agreed to provide a complete Bag-in-Box packaging system solution to French wine wholesaler Maison Johanès Boubée.

The filling and Bag-in-Box packaging line includes a case erector and weight-checking, closing and filling machines, and a Vitop handle insertion system.

Designed for large industrial production facilities, the filling machine is a BIB700 Double Head and a high-speed automatic machine.

The machine features a new filling valve with two separate circuits for nitrogen and vacuum.

The Vitop machine automatically inserts handles on a range of box styles and sizes.

With the filling line, Maison Johanès Boubée expects to optimise its oxygen management, increasing the shelf-life of its Bag-in-Box packaging.
