Brands pursue to create an emotional bond with potential consumers. That is one of the reasons why so much attention is paid to packaging design. Wine bottle capsules have the same important purpose: to attract attention and talk about the product. Consumers research confirms that people prefer packaging that not only guarantee the product safety, but also has an aesthetic appearance and is easy to open.

Sparkling wine capsule is a part of wine culture. It presents the brand and talks about winemaking traditions. Capsules were first used in the 18th century to protect the cork in the bottleneck during storage, transportation, and aging. This was especially important for wines that were intended for long cellaring before consumption. At first the capsule served as a barrier between the cork and the environment: it protected the cork and the wine in the bottle from deterioration due to mould, insects, and rodents. Capsules also helped to identify wines during horizontal storage in wine cellars. Later, it became a tamper-evident device against adulteration of wine and an element of bottle identity, with the help of which brands still communicate with their customers.

Why do winemakers use sparkling wine capsules today?

1. Saves the bottleneck from the direct contact with dirt, moisture and protect the cork from deterioration and desiccation.

2. Guarantees the quality purchase, proving bottle integrity from the bottling place to consumer hands.

3. Provides better brand awareness as create a total-look brand identity together with the bottle label.

Environmental protection and sustainable development are the priority vectors of development for TECHNOLOGIA GROUP. Under present-day conditions it is extremely important for business not only to develop production and invest in the development of the local community, but also takes care of environmental safety and nature protection. Building of modern cleaning system for industrial emissions at the plant of flexible packaging production was a significant step to meet the growing society demand for a healthy and clean future

In 2019 with the support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and a grant from the European Union the company “GUALAPAK UKRAINE”, which is a part of TECHNOLOGIA GROUP, built and put into operation a modern solvent recuperation station. This installation allows to implement a closed cycle of raw materials usage and recovery, reduce harmful emissions into the air by almost 100%, increase energy efficiency and improve production technology.


The project was implemented in 1 year and 3 months. All installation work was performed by local engineer-constructors from Sumy city. All the requirements of Ukrainian and European standards regarding the cleaning level of industrial emissions were maintained during construction. The station operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is managed by only one person. The operator can control the mechanism even remotely, using a special software installed on a phone.

By means of the installed solvent recovery system, we minimize emissions into the atmosphere and reuse recovered raw materials in production. The recuperation process is an effective solution to maintain the environment clean and to implement the principles of sustainable development for TECHNOLOGIA GROUP generally, since GUALAPAK UKRAINE LLC also supplies recycled solvents for the other plants. TECHNOLOGIA JSC regularly purchases secondary solvents from the recuperation station for its production needs.

Using the solvent recuperation system, 99% of chemical waste is re-used in production cycle again, when previously was disposed.

Solvent recuperation system advantages:

This project is aimed to increase the efficiency of resource consumption and prevent climate change. Its implementation became for the TECHNOLOGIA GROUP one of the significant step forward the UN Global Sustainable Goals. Maximum reduction of harmful emissions into the atmosphere, raw materials recycling, willingness to invest in high-cost and long-term solutions is our way to build circular economy in Ukraine today.

Environmental concerns become more visible among contemporary consumers, so more and more people consider if the product and its packaging is eco-friendly when making a purchase decision. TECHNOLOGIA JSC as sustainable packaging manufacturer applies the principles of sustainable development in its production process, doing everything possible to minimize waste, reduce energy and non-renewable resources consumption. Eco-friendly packaging solutions allow us to contribute to nature protection, while drawing the attention of food & beverage as well as technical manufacturers to look at the environmental sensitivities of their customers as well.

Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies indicatively estimates stand-up flexible packaging the market leader among packaging materials in 2022 due to the demand for light, compact and convenient packaging among end consumers. The Super Pouch market had the highest growth rate among all packaging types. Read full research of flexible packaging market trends in our blog.

TECHNOLOGIA JSC has been producing Super Pouch since 2017. Closed production cycle, starting from own production of polyethylene film, combined materials and closures to the end packages manufacturing and printing, is the guarantee of our product quality, because we carefully control all technological processes at every stage and test the end products in our modern laboratories. When manufacturing Super Pouches, we focus on such important elements as strength and tear resistance, food safety, product shelf-life extension and freshness preservation, as well as its protection from environmental influence.

Super Pouch VS Traditional rigid packaging

We produce our products thinking about sustaining the nature for future generations, but at the same time we strive to maintain the high efficiency of the packaging.

Eco-friendly benefits of Super Pouch packaging

1. Less plastics consumption

Comparing production of different packaging types, Super Pouch manufacturing requires less plastics, because flexible packaging has more compact size and less weight, while containing the same amount of the product. For example, production of 1L Super Pouch package uses 57% less plastic compared to the production needs for 1L plastic bottle. And to produce T-Tap Low we use up to 44% less plastics due to the size reduction without losing functional properties.

2. Reducing the transport impact on the environment

Our packaging is made in Europe, so it travels shorter distances to the end consumers, with lower fuel costs and a lower carbon footprint than other traditional packaging options. Moreover, Super Pouches are light and flexible, that allows us to transport much more packages in one truck. Flexible packaging allows to minimize the number of trucks for delivery compared to rigid packaging.

3. Innovative materials

Flexible Super Pouch packaging was designed to minimize the use of packaging materials. Developing the projects of Super Pouch packages for each client, we select the most suitable materials to meet the needs in packaging for each product. We use materials such as PE, EVOH, PET, metPET to create highly efficient but sustainable packaging solutions. We manufacture combined materials based on these components, thus controlling that your product inside our package is perfectly protected from sunlight, oxygen, moisture, UV rays, microbiological contamination, and other environmental factors.

Furthermore, our R&D department is constantly working to find solutions to reduce the impact of Super Pouch production on the environment:

4. Extending the shelf life of the product – reducing the amount of food waste

Together with the development of innovative materials, we are improving our technologies to produce mechanisms for dispensing system. Our T-Tap dispenser provide convenient portioning and hermetic capping that help preserve products longer and reduce food waste.

T-Tap closes immediately after you stop affect the lever. A special mechanism inside ensures minimum oxygen permeability, increasing the shelf-life of your product. Also, we offer T-Tap with foil membrane to prevent dirt and bacteria contamination.

5. Investments in innovation promote waste sorting

We offer our customers the production of standard black T-Tap using an alternative NIR-Detectable black pigments. We also started manufacturing T-Tap Natural without using carbon black pigment to facilitate the sorting and recycling of our dispensers.

SUPER POUCH: eco-friendly packaging production


Responsibility in such fields as honest business conduct and uninterrupted supply, creation of decent working conditions and environmental protection are the basis of our corporate culture on the way to sustainable development and building circular economy. We aim to preserve the essential functions of the packaging while minimizing the impact on the environment throughout its life cycle. Lower use of resources, easier transport, barrier properties that protect the products, sorting and recycling have a positive effect on the sustainability of flexible packaging.

In 2022 TECHNOLOGIA JSC as a responsible packaging manufacturer for the food industry received the highest AA grade to produce Bag-in-box and Super Pouch flexible packaging under BRC Global Standard for Packaging Materials.

Welcome to read our annual Sustainability Report and follow us at social media!

One of the youngest and at the same time oldest among the Flensburg rum manufacturers is the Castenschiold Vestindien Rum Company. The Owner and brand founder Sönke Castenschiold, is a direct descendant of Jørgen Carstensen, who sailed to the Caribbean Island of St. Thomas in 1694 and established the very first sugar plantation and started exporting the most exceptional, aged rums to Europe. Today we want to speak with Sönke regarding Castenschiold brand development and cooperation with TECHNOLOGIA JSC.

castenschiold rum

To begin with, we would like to briefly share the Castenschiold Rum story. In the Flensburg city, where Castenschiold Rum brand takes its roots, we can look back on a long tradition of rum manufacturers. The precious sugar cane for production sourced directly from the Danish colonies of St. Croix, St. Thomas, and St. John. When the city was a part of the Danish kingdom, there were over 200 rum companies that benefited from trading with the Caribbean colonies. Unfortunately, now there is hardly anything left of this glamor of the 18th and 19th centuries.

A father of Castenschiold rum, Jørgen Carstensen was a 16-year-old Flensburg orphan, when he sailed to the Caribbean Island of St. Thomas in 1694. There he worked for his uncle, the governor of the island. It wasn’t long before the first pots of Kildywel – the early form of rum, were exported to Denmark under the supervision of his uncle. By purchasing the Mosquito Bay estate and other profitable decisions, Jørgens son Johan Lorentz consolidated the family’s influence in the sugar and rum business. Johan Lorentz was knighted in 1745 for his services to the Danish Crown, taking the family name Castenschiold.

Based on long family tradition in the sugar and rum business, Castenschiold developed a rum that should prove to be proud of its long history. Yes, first it was legendary Castenschiold Signum Rum. Further rums have followed. Today, Castenschiold has four spirits in its portfolio: The Castenschiold Signum Rum, Castenschiold Governors Rum, Castenschiold 1864 Rum as well as the Castenschiold Hjemkomst Rum.

Castenschiold Rum launched its Castenschiold Signum Rum at Christmas time 2017. We used a small but exclusive way to show our customers that we are available by using companies that liked our idea to revive a family history of rum manufacturers after 325 years.

To be honest, I have never heard about you before your manager contacted me one day since he knew about our very professional graphic designer from Argentina. He saw that our label could be enhanced to a «superb» level, which we then did together. I’ve just took a chance and trusted your team.


TECHNOLOGIA JSC has demonstrated that there is always a way of improvement in label design. We already had a very luxurious appearance of our brand and label, but special “touch” of your professionals to the design pushed our existing and new label to a new level.

At the very beginning of our cooperation TECHNOLOGIA JSC showed a number of high-end label projects – we were fairly impressed. Especially ALU embossed and debossed labels, which we think JSC TECHNOLOGIA has unique production experience in.

From the first moment the work with JSC TECHNOLOGIA was very friendly, positive and target orientated. We developed warm personal relations with our contact person during our first mutual project. We are confident that further projects with TECHNOLOGIA JSC will follow in future.


The collaboration between Castenschiold Rum family brand and TECHNOLOGIA JSC began in 2020 when our manager spotted some weak points in the existing packaging and immediately put forward the idea to improve the sharpness of Family Coat of Arms, which is now an embossed aluminum label with delicate details and polished golden foil. We also printed a paper label using offset printing on a textured paper, decorated with gold foil stamping and high-build varnish.


Wants to make your product design special? Write to us at label@technologia.com.ua.
We have a number of outstanding ideas for your label design!

Every manufacturer aims to catch clients’ first impressions. That’s why product visual plays an important role in the creation of brand appearance and is a unique message to the buyer, which helps to identify the product and increase brand awareness. Sometimes it is difficult to remember the brand name of a liked drink, but buyers will remember its original packaging.

Creating an attractive packaging is one of the most effective ways to encourage a buyer to buy your product among dozens of competitors. Marketing research shows that the packaging design of a new product at market plays a decisive role in making a purchase decision for more than 60% of buyers. This indicator exceeds the result of the influence of television advertising in several times.

Packaging design for wine & spirits industry has its own characteristics. A happy blend of color, shape, materials, and fonts makes the spirits bottle visual more expressive, recognizable, and eye-catching for true brand fans.

TECHNOLOGIA JSC has many years of experience working on packaging projects for world leaders in sparkling wines production. Our design bureau, together with production technologists, develops the exquisite decorations for champagne bottles of various shapes, colors, and structures using only high-quality materials of our own production. Our professionalism in film extrusion and foil lamination, as well as extensive experience in the production of sparkling wines capsules and wirehoods, self-adhesive labels printing, allowed us to become one of the world leaders in packaging for wine & spirits industry.

Wine & spirits packaging design trends

Modern trends in the development of packaging for wine and spirit beverages help manufacturers to emphasize their individuality and create a strong emotional connection between brand and its fans. Designers, marketers and packaging manufacturers work together to ensure that the shape, color and decoration of the bottle are harmoniously combined and reflect the history and character of the drink inside the bottle in the best way.

Recent years show that global trends in sparkling wine bottles designing are developing in two directions:

1. Maintenance of the classic style of the champagne bottle, which emphasizes the brand loyalty to the long-standing winemaking traditions. It is based on an elegant color scheme, a lot of gold or silver, heraldic elements, decorative or Gothic fonts. The idea of this trend is to create a special mood, a feeling of touching history, balancing between the past and the present.

2. The development of a modern champagne bottle design style, boldly demonstrating the brand’s commitment to innovation and experimentation. The modern design uses bright or pastel colors and trendy elements and images that are unconventional for the wine industry, which evoke bright associations and play out a whole show on store shelves. Creating such an emotional connection arouses the buyer’s curiosity and encourages him to buy.

To predict the future of the packaging market, it is wise to investigate the development history and analyze the current market trends to see the vector of the packaging market movement. There are many obvious market trends today that have both positive aspects and those that need to be improved. For client-oriented suppliers, market trends analysis can help to forecast the guidepath of the packaging industry.

Three key trends of the flexible packaging market development are evident today. Let’s analyze them together:

1. E-commerce upswing

Long-term COVID-19 pandemic isolation forced people to switch to online shopping for large volumes of long-lived commodities as well as fresh food and daily necessities on an ongoing basis. The overgrowth of the e-commerce market forced manufacturers and sellers to look for new options for convenient and reliable packaging. As a result, the demand for flexible packaging in the food sector has quickly increased during 2020-2021. The industry continues fast-growing: from food safety assurance and shelf-life extension to innovative barrier solutions, strong printing, easy-to-use, and recycling.

As an example, manufacturers of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages started to use flexible Bag-in-box and Super Pouch packaging. Moreover, large volume packages became very popular. Such a solution ensured packaging safety and eliminated the problem of glass bottles breaking and spilling liquid products during transportation to the client, as well as reducing packaging waste.

ENG Bag in box

2. Sustainable brand loyalty

Eco-friendly packaging is the biggest trend in the modern market. Consumers vote with their money for environmentally friendly products, showing loyalty to brands implementing sustainable development standards for their manufacturing. Therefore, consumers drive packaging suppliers to minimize manufacturing waste, maximize the usage of recyclable materials and focus on producing packaging that leaves a smaller carbon footprint.

The life cycle of flexible packaging demonstrates many sustainable advantages:

TECHNOLOGIA JSC works daily to achieve the global goals of sustainable development via a continuous process of business development and support of three key directions: “people” – “innovations and investments” – “saving the planet”. In 2021, we reduced plastics usage up to 44%, cut carbon footprint and solvent emissions up to 98%, and saved up to 40% in electricity consumption. Beyond that, we have increased the recycling of polylaminate and aluminum waste by 130% over the past 3 years.

ENG Sustainabilty

3. New design concepts

Design solutions are critical to creating cost-effective, easy-to-use, and sustainable packaging. The main trends in the design of flexible packaging on the market during the last few years are as follows:

A package that can be easily opened, but still guarantees safe storage, takes the first place in the design lay-out. Brands continue working on the implementation of high-quality standards for their products including assuring the packaging integrity throughout the entire logistics chain. Using tamper-evident liners and labels, caps & closures, termoshrinkable capsules, etc., manufacturing companies guarantee that the product inside hasn’t been touched since it was packaged. Moreover, brand owners try to protect the originality of their products with special labels and smart tags at the very beginning of new design concept planning.

TECHNOLOGIA JSC has its own manufacture of T-tap with a protective tear-off tape to ensure the integrity of its Bag-in-box and Super Pouch flexible packaging and guarantee that the contents of the package have been preserved originally.

Tear-off T-tap ENG

Space-saving packaging will also be the rule. Companies are increasingly using minimalist design for their packaging as consumers look for products with less packaging material to reduce waste, enabling them to have an impact on environmental issues.

Transparent packaging is increasingly appearing on shelves as packaging designers want to emphasize the importance of interactive experience for the shoppers. When customers can easily see the product inside and feel its texture, they are more likely to buy it.

Super Pouch is the most popular flexible packaging in 2022

The market segment of stand-up Super Pouch is expected to have the highest growth rate up to 20% in 2022. Due to the growing popularity of ready-to-eat foods, as well as the demand for lightweight and flexible packaging, Super Pouches are going to become the leader among packaging options this year.

Pouch demand ENG

In the light of such market trends, manufacturers are improving their technologies of pouch production.

Increasing consumer demand for convenient, easy-to-use, and sustainable packaging for food and beverages is driving up the growth of the flexible packaging segment.

Flexible packaging is a popular trend in recent years, and there is an essential reason. Innovative materials and technologies make flexible packaging suitable for many more consumer products than when rigid materials were preferred.

The key idea of flexible packaging is to abandon the use of rigid materials in packaging production and make it lighter, space efficient and cheaper. Flexible packaging combines all the advantages of plastic, film, paper, and aluminum without losing its barrier properties, good printing properties, usability, and sustainability.

The most popular flexible packaging is roll stock packaging, pouches, bag-in-box packages, heat-shrink and stretch film, heat-shrink caps and labels, sachet packaging, mixpap lids for multipacks and bundles, bags and envelopes. Such packaging has many advantages compared to rigid ones:

• Production needs less material, energy, and water
• Barrier properties of the material extends the product shelf life
• Has a convenient and practical opening system
• Has an eye-catch appearance on the retail shelf
• Less volume and weight save storage and transportation costs.

Flexible Packaging Market Overview

Grand View Research Inc. estimated the volume of the world flexible packaging market at $252 billion in 2021. It is expected the flexible packaging market continues growing at 4.5% annually during 2022-2030. In 2024 the flexible packaging industry is forecasted to reach a total value of $269 billion.

Analyses from The Smithers also shows global flexible packaging market size was estimated at 31.5 million tons in 2021. Compared to the 2016 assessment, when the market size was recorded at 26.9 million tons, the world flexible packaging market has been increasing annually by 3.3% over the last 5 years.

By different estimates, the global market will reach 37.5 million tons in 2026, if the annual market growth rate stays at 3.4% (Georgy Cameron. The Future of Flexible Packaging to 2026, Smithers). This report also considers several factors that are expected to impact the flexible packaging market over the next five years, including:

• Economic and demographic changes,

The Flexible Packaging Association reports that the largest market for flexible packaging is the food industry (retail and HORECA), accounting approximately 58% of sales. Other popular markets for flexible packaging are pharmaceutical goods – 14%; personal care – 5%; pet food – 3%; consumer goods – 2%; tobacco – 1%; other non-food products – 5% and industrial needs – 6%.

Innovations on the flexible packaging market

One of the reasons for the rapid growth of flexible packaging in the packaging market is the development of materials. For many years, the most flexible packaging material was polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These plastics did not break down or decompose, making it hostile to the environmental. Today, polyethylene (PE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or polypropylene (PP) materials are primarily used in the production of flexible packaging. These high-tech plastics have high durability over its lifetime but is more conducive to recycling and final disposal. Furthermore, new recycling programs for used packaging are increasingly popular and contribute to the popularization of flexible packaging and the growth of the market.

The Flexible Packaging Market Size, Share & Trends report from Grand View Research Inc. confirms that plastics dominated the flexible packaging industry in 2021 with a 70.1% market share. Modern plastic raw materials are so popular because they can be easily modified by co-polymerization to meet the complex requirements of different packaging as well as their accessibility and cost-effectiveness.

While soft plastics (PE, PET, PP) are the best packaging material for weight, cost, and efficiency, expanding the innovative materials market is essential to address rising levels of pollution due to high levels of plastic usage. Experts predict that the bioplastic raw materials market segment will experience the highest growth rate of 6% from 2022 to 2030. The introduction of strict government regulations, especially in North America and Europe countries, is expected to have a positive effect on the demand for sustainable materials, thus stimulating the growth of the bioplastics segment.
