South Africa: Namaqua Wines chooses SIG as preferred carton packaging supplier

Namaqua Wines, one of the largest wine producers in the Southern Hemisphere, has chosen to partner with SIG as its preferred carton packaging supplier for its low alcohol wine selection. This is the first time the Namaqua company has invested in its own filling machine for aseptic carton packs, having previously used a co-packer to fill its wines.

Located on the west coast of South Africa, and with a passion for producing exceptional wines, Namaqua Wines is a pioneer in the country’s wine industry, with a focus on sustainability and innovation. The company has opted for a SIG Slimline Aseptic filling machine and has already started filling its wide range of low alcohol wines into SIG SlimlineBloc 1,000 ml carton packs.

Namaqua is convinced that with this modern and fresh product and packaging concept, it will help to meet growing consumer demands and also boost its business.

Gabor Rapolthy, Head of Marketing and Analytics at Namaqua Wines: “By investing for the first time in our very own filling technology for aseptic carton packs, we aim to set the course for further growth, starting with our low alcohol wine range. We’ve been producing wines for more than 75 years and have the fastest growing wine brand in South Africa for the past two years with our Raindance brand. Our close partnership with SIG will help us to continue our robust growth, increase production volume, and expand our presence in the South African market even further.”

South Africa is renowned for wine production and Namaqua Wines has established itself as an outstanding brand that consistently delivers exquisite wines. By utilizing its expertise in winemaking and working with local winemakers, Namaqua ensures its wines reflect the unique richness and characteristics of the region. Its winery offers a diverse portfolio, catering to a wide range of tastes and usage occasions. According to Namaqua Wines, they produce almost one in six liters of wine in South Africa.

Abdelghany Eladib, President & General Manager India, Middle East and Africa at SIG: “SIG has been established in South Africa for many decades and this new investment by Namaqua Wines is another step forward for us in the country. As a leading supplier of carton packaging for wine in South Africa, we’re looking forward to growing our partnership with Namaqua, starting with its low alcohol wine selection.”

Over the last year alone, Namaqua has received awards for its Shiraz, Pinotage, Sauvignon Blanc, Red Muscadel and Hanepoot Jerepigo wines – including awards from Gilbert & Gilbert, Veritas, and Platter.
