HEALDSBURG — Truett-Hurst, Inc. (Nasdaq: THST) on Thursday said it signed a deal with an Oakland-based maker of paper bottles to take over supplying the shelf-bound vessels for the PaperBoy wine brand after the previous United Kingdom-based supplier of the unique wine container recently encountered financial problems.
Truett-Hurst said the closer proximity of that plant will help the company manage production better and have more efficient transportation. Strong sales for PaperBoy have been key to Truett-Hurst’s reported growth, and the company recently alerted investors to the hiccup in the paper bottle supply after UK-based GreenBottle in late February filed for administration, that country’s equivalent to bankruptcy.
At the time, Truett-Hurst said it had found a new supplier.
