Rapak® Develops Bag-in-Box Packaging Solution for Liquid Detergent
[ROMEOVILLE, ILLINOIS. September 19, 2019]. Rapak, part of DS Smith Plastics, has developed a durable Bag-in-Box solution in response to an increase in the e-commerce demand of laundry detergents and other Consumer Packaged Goods (CPGs).
According to Information Resource Inc. (IRI), E-commerce sales of CPGs hit $58.9 billion in 2018, a 35.4% increase from the year before. Just behind pet food sales, household laundry was one of the fastest growing CPG categories online.
Not surprisingly, CPG companies and packaging goods manufacturers like DS Smith Plastics, Rapak, are responding to the rapid growth in demand and developing new solutions to cater e-commerce sales & distribution channels.
Rapak’s specially-designed bag for Bag-in-Box laundry detergent is comprised of a Biaxially-oriented Nylon (BON) lamination, providing good barrier and high puncture-resistance. Rapak bags are available with the Detergent tap, an industry leading top-push dispensing tap used on rigid liquid laundry containers today, or the VINIflow™ tap, a commercially successful self-closing, top-pull dispensing tap. Both taps are manufactured by Worldwide Dispensers and offer user-friendly dispensing, excellent directional flow and no post-drip.
Bag-in-Box is the perfect solution for liquid detergent and shipping liquids in the e-commerce world, compared to traditional rigid bottles.
- Reduced risk of damage or leaks in transit
- Less environmental impact
- Logistical efficiencies with reduced fossil fuel consumptions and CO2 emissions
- Convenience with single-handed tap dispensing
- Enhanced branding impact for retail displays
