When Cornwall’s largest independent cyder-maker decided in 2020 they wanted new packaging for their soon-to-be launched line of Still Rattler fruit cider - Flattler, they turned to Barnstaple’s Smurfit Kappa to provide a solution.

Healeys Cyder is one of the fastest-growing cider-makers in the UK and you will already find Rattler Cornish Cloudy Cyder and Cornish Gold available on draught and in bottles at pubs and venues up and down the country.

By introducing Bag-in-Box cider to their packaging options, Healeys Cyder can now offer Rattler Cyder in more settings and in a still format, complimenting their existing carbonated range.

The Bag-in-Box offers an efficient and ease of use with its ‘pull and pour’ format, ideal for use in pub gardens, BBQ’s and at events.

“We wanted our cyders to be as accessible as possible, which includes catering for a variety of pack formats and usage scenarios” Lee Maidment, Marketing Manager of Healeys Cyder.

“We love our new Bag-in-Box® packaging from Smurfit Kappa Barnstaple,” said Lee.

“Rattler Cornish Cloudy Cyder is well-known for     standing out in the cider industry, particularly when it comes to our use of vibrant colours across the Rattler brand, and I am pleased to say that the boxes for Flattler that Smurfit Kappa have delivered meet our very high standards!

“The box itself is quick and easy to assemble, and most importantly, the structure of the Bag-in-Box is strong and robust, which means none of our delicious cyder will go to waste through damages!”
