MODESTO, Calif. (March 25, 2019) – With summer fast approaching and more wine consumers moving towards alternative wine packaging, StackTek is preparing for a hot summer ahead as it continues to line up key logistic and winery partners.
“StackTek is perfectly positioned for today’s wine market as it offers multiple benefits to many different audiences including wine lovers, retailers and wineries,” said Burke Eiteljorg, president of StackTek. He added, “With our partners, we are uniquely-positioned to consistently provide an unparalleled container for any use and any experience.”
StackTek consists of 4 pre-filled, stemless ‘glasses’ that snap together to form the equivalent of a traditional 750 mL bottle of wine. Single-serve wine options are growing increasingly popular among consumers as it allows consumers to take premium wine on any adventure whether they are hiking, tailgating or concert-going. StackTek ensures the wines maintain freshness with the eco-friendly, convenient and hassle-free pre-filled ‘glasses’ that are 100% BPA-free plastic. The individual single-serve 187ml resemble an elegant and stylish Reidel stemless glass proving popular with consumers.
The company has announced a new partnership with G3 Enterprises to handle bottling and logistics. This includes a fully automated, state-of-the-art, dedicated bottling line capable of filling 150 glasses per minute as well as the flexibility to handle co-packing services through G3’s bonded facility in Modesto. The bottling line utilizes a modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) method enabling StackTek to extend the shelf life and ensures maximum freshness of its products.
“We are really excited by the response to StackTek both in the wine industry and with consumers,” said Mihailo Panovich, Vice President of Sales for G3 Enterprises. He added, “Given the packaging design and versatility, we are working with StackTek to explore a wide variety of uses for customers who want easy-to-use single serving packaging.”
For now, wine is the focus of StackTek, and its design possesses several critical attributes that further lend itself to the needs of both consumers and retailers. Benefits such as portion control and a stylish aesthetic provide a substantial lift in efficiency and incremental sales at retail, venues, and events. StackTek’s vertical multipack of shatterproof, light-weight PET containers and one-of-a-kind patented snapping mechanism makes it easy to store.
