In the ever-evolving landscape of plastic packaging, innovation remains a driving force behind transformative change. SIPA, an industry leader in packaging solutions, achieved a new milestone with the development of the world's first PET bottle designed specifically for sparkling wine. This innovation has garnered significant attention and acclaim within the wine industry and beyond. PET bottles for sparkling wine provide, infact, numerous advantages, including lightweight design, durability, and sustainability.

PDG on the forefront of the packaging business in Europe

The first player to recognize the potential of SIPA's PET bottles for sparkling wine was PDG Plastiques who stands out as a leader in converting this innovative packaging solution into a reality. Recognizing the numerous advantages these PET bottles offered, PDG Plastiques made a strategic investment in SIPA's preform mold with 32 cavities specifically designed for the production of sparkling wine preforms. This strategic move positioned PDG Plastiques to be at the forefront of the wine packaging industry's transformation. PDG Plastiques invested not only in SIPA's preform molds but also preform systems and blowing molds. Their commitment to serve the wine packaging markets across Europe and their adoption of SIPA's sustainable packaging solutions exemplify their dedication to excellence.

Expanding Their Reach

PDG Plastiques' vision and investment in SIPA's technology have enabled them to serve the wine packaging markets not only in their home country of France but also in Spain, Germany, and Italy, where the appreciation for fine wines runs deep. Their commitment to innovation and quality has allowed them to make a significant impact on the wine packaging landscape.
