Jet Technologies has launched a cask solution suitable for all types of drinks, which can be custom-printed to maximise branding on shelf.

The company claims its preservation quality is superior to bag-in-box systems

The cask allows companies to brand their drink products without the need for additional external packaging.

The bags are flexible, self-supporting, and come in 1.5, 2, 3 or 5 litre sizes with a choice of aseptic options. They allow liquid or beverage suppliers to maintain the quality of their product beyond a traditional bag-in-box product.

The shaped pouch provides a modern look, with a carry handle that also helps with pouring.

“We are excited to be offering the Australian and New Zealand drinks marketplace access to a new innovation in the packaging of liquid products,” General manager Daniel Malki said.

“Our innovative cask can help extend the shelf life of a range of beverages when compared to using bag-in-box systems.”

“Shelf life is extended due to the film structure of the packaging, which provides an important barrier to oxygen and ensures the preservation of the product for a longer period of time.

"For example, this permits wine to be kept for up to eight weeks in ambient environments after opening, and up to six weeks after opening for many other drinks including fruit juice.”
