Expanded polystyrene (EPS) manufacturing company ACH Foam Technologies has gone in for a redesign in a bid to offer added packaging options and increased protection of bottles during transit.
The 2-, 6-, and 12-pack EPS foam units are contained within a corrugated cardboard outer carton and use specially designed pockets that hold frozen gel refrigerants and allow internal airflow.
These refrigerants, which are tested to meet ISTA-7E temperature standards, are designed expressly for the maximum amount of wine possible in the package, keeping the wine at or below 800F for up to 72 hours.
ACH architectural products VP Frank Kiesecker said they are eying on extend this award-winning take-back program to the wine industry with our WineLoc summer wine shippers.
"WineLoc is ideal for protecting wines from the summer heat, as well as breakage, during transit. Now, environmentally conscious California wineries can participate in an award-winning recycling program that’s proven to be successful," said Kiesecker.
