Award winning packaging of 2018

by Admin

We’ve looked back at the UK Packaging Awards of 2018 and found this innovative flat wine bottle and box worth a mention.  The bottle itself was inspired by the “Amazon generation” of shoppers and created to fulfill online orders of wine that can be delivered seamlessly into the home.

Not only is it a new shaped space saving bottle, it’s inventors claim it’s made from 100% recycled PET and is slight and strong enough to be sent by post. 

Considering 33 billion bottles are consumed globally per year, the space saving design of this bottle could have an immediate and positive impact on reducing carbon emissions through logistics. 

You can see it here packaged into a corrugated postal box with a die cut fitting to hold it perfectly in place.


What’s this go to do with Packaging Supplies?

Well apart from loving the flat wine bottle concept, we produce postal packaging for all types of products that are sent through the post by online retailers.  We can make boxes and fittings to perfectly suit your product and we can either supply these branded or left plain Kraft or white.
