Benefits Bag-in-Box Packaging

Proud to be made in Ontario

Geissberger Farmhouse Cider's award winning Bag-in-Box packaging keeps your cider fresh without refrigeration or preservatives for up to 1 year. This allows us to press the apples at the peak of freshness.

No refrigeration helps the environment as refrigeration is the third contributor to greenhouse gases.
This also allows our customers the option to sell their own cider in the stores.

Our high temperature - short time pasteurizer heats the cider to 79'C for 15 seconds and then the cider is placed in the BPA free bag where a vacuum seal is created to prevent fermentation.

We are also please to announce that the process and material used to make the cardboard box is Forest Sustainable Certified (FSC).

~ Introduction
~ How It Works
~ Pricing Apple Pressing


a) Cider is packaged with no perservatives

b) Save Refrigerator Space - Bag-in-Box cider does not require refrigeration. Leave it on your counter to enjoy or you can chill it in the refrigerator. Bag-in-Box cider cannot be frozen.

c) Stays Fresh Longer! - Unopened Bag-in-Box cider has a shelf life of 1 year. Once the valve is opened the cider must be enjoyed within 3 months. (refrigeration still not required.) Cider is placed hot in the bag and the spout prevents air from entering the bag and contacting the cider to start fermentation.


We are very proud that our bag-in-box packaging is made in Ontario. With the awareness of single use plastics, bag-in-box packaging 75% of our packaging is recyclable working towards 100% by 2025 but that is only a small part of reducing carbon footprint:
~ 8 X lower carbon footprint then glass bottle
~ Less Food Waste - Longer shelf life (without required refrigeraton)
~ 4 x less space required for shipping compared to 3L plastic juice bottle
