Visy has partnered with Australia Post to launch a two-bottle cardboard WINEpak for the safe distribution of wine throughout Australia Post’s national network.
Visy Specialties and Australia Post developed the unique two-bottle WINEpak following the successful launch of the single-bottle WINEpak earlier this year. The solution provides an innovative and environmentally friendly alternative to polystyrene packaging.
Visy Specialties account manager Steve Cochrane said the new pack is unique to the market and made from recycled and recyclable cardboard.
“The WINEpak protects just as well as other alternatives, is cost effective and even better - it is 100% recyclable,” Cochrane said.
Debbie Williams, National Category Manager Communications and POSTpak for Australia Post, said WINEpak is a custom-made solution for customers wanting to send wine home or as presents through the postal system.
“Wine is a great gift and with the development of the double WINEpak, consumers, vineyards and wine clubs now have a range of practical and simple solutions to sending wine through the post,” Williams said.
The two-bottle WINEpak is available at all Australia Post participating retail outlets from August 2005 at $5.25 although bulk discounts are also available.
