RICHMOND, Va., Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Liqui-Box, a world leader in flexible liquid packaging, has designed a new dispensing tap, Liqui-Top™, which will revolutionize the bag-in-box wine market for years to come. Their new Top-Tap development elevates the tap to the top of the box allowing the consumer to place a standard glass directly under the tap for pouring. Liqui-Top™ eliminates the need to lift the box over a glass to dispense, or pouring over the edge of a countertop. This new tap design is manually activated; therefore the consumer no longer has to contend with slow pour rates as the bag nears depletion. In addition to an improved experience for the consumer, the Liqui-Top™ has been designed entirely from plastic components for improved oxygen barrier performance while maintaining recyclability.
"The bag-in-box wine industry has been asking for something new and exciting, and the Liqui-Box team is proud to continue with its strong culture of innovation and bring this new design to the market," commented Greg Gard, Senior Vice President R&D at Liqui-Box.
