This study was conducted to qualify potential synthetic cork vendors for sale within the United States. Saxco International, a leading supplier of packaging to the Wine, Spirits, and Brewing industry, has noticed a recent increase in demand for an alternative to natural cork. As with other packaging products, introducing a new synthetic cork requires due diligence on the part of the supplier to ensure the product meets the safety and functional requirements of the industry.
