Cartons: Better Beverage Packaging
A quick stroll down the beverage aisle of any grocery store in the U.S. will reveal the prevalence of plastic packaging in the beverage industry. Jugs of milk, juice carafes, and soda bottles dominate the shelves. Plastic is so ubiquitous that many manufacturers use it by default without giving a single thought to possible alternatives.
Are you in the business of beverage manufacturing? Have you been using plastic by default? Have you considered switching to liquid carton packaging? We think you should! There are a lot of advantages to using liquid carton packaging instead of plastic packaging. Beverage cartons are efficient, dependable, and lend themselves well to graphic design.
Beverage Cartons are Efficient
Beverage cartons come in a practical shape, with flat, even sides all around. They can be snuggly stacked and stocked without wasting any space, which makes them easier to ship, store, and shelve than irregularly shaped plastic containers. A pallet that can hold 450 plastic carafe bottles can hold up to 576 beverage cartons, and a standard retail shelf that can hold 12 plastic carafe bottles can hold up to 15 beverage cartons.
Beverage Cartons are Dependable
Liquid carton packaging is durable, and can easily withstand potentially challenging environmental factors. Beverage cartons are also completely opaque, which makes them better for maintaining product quality than plastic alternatives. Light-sensitive beverages like milk last longer when packaged in paper cartons than when packaged in plastic, because paperboard offers more protection from the environment than translucent or semi-translucent plastic.
Beverage Cartons are Aesthetically Appealing
Liquid carton packaging comes with inherent advertising capabilities that plastic liquid packaging lacks. Beverage cartons are made of paperboard, which means they can be printed on directly. This opens up a host of graphic design opportunities that are not available when using plastic packaging. Being able to customize your packaging with eye-catching graphic design and useful information is a huge asset, as it will help your product stand out from the competition.
