Next Bottling Solutions

About Next Bottling Solutions: 

Next Bottling Solutions was born out of the COVID-19 pandemic after discovering that wineries across Ontario were facing major glass wine bottle shortages as a result of supply chain disruptions around the world. As a result, wineries are facing longer lead times and an increase in prices, which has negatively impacted their operating model.

Next Bottling Solutions is one of the pioneering Canadian distributors to offer an innovative and sustainable solution to address this supply shortage: the paper wine bottle. The paper wine bottle will be the first one of its kind introduced to the Ontario market and aims to help wineries move away from traditional bottling avenues to stabilize inventory, lower shipping costs, and meet the changing demands of consumers.

Our distributed bottling solution is 94% recyclable with a paperboard outer, 5x lighter than a normal glass bottle, produced with a carbon footprint 6x lower than a glass bottle, and uses up to 77% less plastic than a plastic bottle.
