Trend Topics at ProWein 2023
Bag-in-Box and other packaging alternatives
The wine industry is undergoing a packaging revolution, and ProWein 2023 is the perfect place to learn about the latest trends.
With the rising cost of energy and a shortage of glass bottles due to the war in Ukraine, producers are looking for alternative packaging options that are more cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
In California, for example, winemakers are turning to bag-in-box packaging, which has a 84% lower carbon footprint and a 60% lower distribution footprint than glass bottles. It also keeps wine fresh longer and is more compact and lightweight.
Consumers are also more open to alternative packaging than ever before, and producers in Germany and Scandinavia are already using bag-in-box packaging. Other alternatives include stainless steel kegs, PET bottles, and cardboard packaging.
Whisky is growing in popularity
ProWein 2023 in Düsseldorf, Germany is a great place to learn more about the diverse world of whisky, with around 500 of the almost 6,000 exhibitors showcasing their spirits ranges, including almost 100 whisky suppliers.
The market for whisky is evolving, with new brands and distilleries popping up all over the world and a focus on targeting younger consumers with entry-level products and a more laid-back attitude towards how to enjoy whisky.
Distillers are also experimenting with different malt types, yeast types, and cask handling techniques to create new and diverse aromas in their whiskies.
The History of ProWein
ProWein has been around for more than 25 years, and it’s grown significantly since its inception. The first ProWein took place in 1994, and it featured just 321 exhibitors from 10 countries and had only 1,517 visitors.
Fast forward to today, and ProWein has become a global powerhouse, with more than 6,600 exhibitors from over 50 countries.
