Guala Closures Group attended again this year PROPAK EAST AFRICA, the biggest fair of packaging and processing of plastics, which took place in Nairobi, Kenya, from 27th February to 1st March.
The teams of GC India and GC South Africa have been at the disposal of the several visitors to provide informations about the wide range of products dedicated to the spirits, wine and beverages markets. The main focus was once again about the anti-counterfeiting products, equipped with anti-refilling and tamper evident systems. Counterfeiting is a globally widespread problem, but remains most of all in Africa, a matter of high importance: it is estimated that more than half of the consumed alcohol every year in the sub-Saharan Africa is counterfeit (source: World Health Organisation).
Among the latest products introduced in Africa, the Nip Cap has caused a particular interest: a simple solution, affordable but safe due to the tamper evident patented system, that allows the consumer to interact with the bottle by removing a tear-off bend during the first opening.<< News
