AUS/JAPAN: Barokes steps up partnership with can producer Daiwa
Australian firm Barokes has signed a deal with can manufacturer Daiwa in a bid to expand the 'wine in a can' category globally.
The Victoria-based firm already has the global patent for the Vinsafe wine packaging system, while Japan-based Daiwa, which has a stake in Barokes, produces a resealable aluminium bottle known as the 'Slim Wine Bottle Can'. Barokes said it will be launching a new range of wine products in the slim wine can bottle "early in 2013", as a result of the deal.
Greg Stokes, Barokes' CEO, said: “We are excited to be entering the next phase of the Barokes business with a global partner whose history and mission is steeped in technical innovation through the delivery of high quality products that meet customer demands.”
