Recent Tech Innovations in Wine Packaging

It’s no secret that emerging technologies have disrupted industries of all kinds, including food and beverages. This is true not only in their manufacturing but also in their packaging. The wine industry, in particular, is not exempt from these developments as there is now a high demand for new and innovative packing tech. Today’s wine packaging addresses consumer, societal, and environmental needs – while still retaining the product’s intended quality. Designing packaging for wine can be a very technical process. Aside from form and aesthetics, the function of these plays an equal role of importance. In some ways, it resembles designing for testability with circuit boards. As printed circuit boards are what allow devices to run efficiently, packaging is what keeps the wine fresh and helps it retain its taste. The back-end of production – what consumers don’t see – is what becomes integral in the overall product. A lot of it has to do with thinking and planning ahead – you need to consider which materials will ensure maximum freshness and protection, while also thinking about the flexibility and rigidity of its container. Designing for testability and functionality ensures that resources are not wasted. This can be aided by tech innovations as w
