European packaging manufacturer Smurfit Kappa has created a corrugated mail order pack for wine bottles.

The 'Protektapak' box, designed to withstand the "gruelling" postal environment, provides transit protection for bottles, the paper-based packaging company said today (20 November).

Smurfit Kappa created the pack following a briefing by winehound.co.uk to develop an environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to protective mailing packs currently used in the market.

The resulting corrugated box design aims to replace environmentally unfriendly and expensive polystyrene.

"Our design team at Smurfit Kappa Display & Print worked hard to create the new 'Protektapak'," said Paul Cahill, sales director at Smurfit Kappa Display & Print. "Part of this process was to put the product through vigorous testing to ensure it provided the necessary protection."
