The Vitop® tap occupies the No. 1 position in the world for wine taps and has revolutionised the Bag-in-Box® system. The Vitop® tap quickly grew in popularity due to its tamper-proof design and high oxygen barrier which provide extended shelf life and product freshness. Tests on the Vitop® tap have revealed it to have a leak rate of just 1 in 5 million, a key contributor to its industry-leading position. To reach such high standards, each tap is individually tested under rigorous quality control standards. Ease of use has also contributed to its global appeal as it requires little effort to obtain a regular flow rate and is self-closing. Click Read More below for additional information.
UPM Raflatac is committed to developing labelling solutions with other industry leaders to support brand owners in eliminating unnecessary plastic packaging and achieving their target of 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable plastic packaging by 2025. Reaching these targets requires the cooperation of players on the whole packaging value chain.
Innovative solutions such as the RafCycle recycling programme, thin film materials, wash-off adhesives and label materials containing recycled content are some initiatives UPM Raflatac has undertaken to promote a circular plastics economy.
UPM Raflatac signed the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment among 250 organisations, including many of the world’s largest packaging producers, brands, retailers, recyclers and NGOs. The Global Commitment is led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF) in collaboration with UN Environment.
Targets will be reviewed every 18 months and become increasingly ambitious over the coming years. Businesses that sign the commitment will publish annual data on their progress to help drive momentum and ensure transparency.
