If you are a manufacturer that produces a liquid good, it can be difficult to determine the best type of packaging for your product. There are a variety of packaging options available including bottles, pouches, and cartons. Each of these methods help to maintain freshness and offer convenience to consumers. Read on to determine what the best method of packaging is for your product.
Packaging Liquids in Bottles
One of the options available for packaging liquid products is a bottle. There are a variety of goods packaged in bottles such as soda, bottled water, beer, and wine. When determining if packaging your product in a bottle is the best fit for you it is important to consider the contents of your package as well as the placement of the label. Bottle labels can be placed on the side, wrapped around the bottle, or positioned on the top of the bottle.
The type of label you choose for your bottle will depend upon the information you want to communicate such as your branding, nutrition information, ingredients, coupons, and more.
Packaging Liquids in Pouches
Another option for packaging your liquid products is a pouch. Stand-up pouches are a popular method for holding liquid contents due to their flexibility, ease of use, and the ability to keep substances fresh. These pouches can accommodate products such as soups, juices, and laundry detergent.
After deciding upon the best type of packaging for your product, the next step is to evaluate the best labeler for your good.
One of the conveniences of stand-up pouches is the ability to place the label on the front or back of the pouch. Resealable labels can also be applied to stand-up pouches in order to preserve the freshness of the good by resealing the pouch after it has been opened. Pouch packaging also requires a labeler that can handle products with great care, such as the pressure sensitive labelers offered by WLS.
Packaging Liquids in Cartons
Milk and juice are two items that are often stored in traditional cartons. In addition to large, full-size cartons, there has also been an emergence of products being packaged in smaller cartons. These products include broth, juice boxes, and soup.
One of the advantages of storing liquids in cartons is the ability to recycle this packaging. This is beneficial to consumers who are concerned with sustainability. Offering packaging that appeals to environmentally minded buyers also allows your brand to reach a new audience. Another advantage of packaging liquids in cartons is the option to place a label on the front or back of the package.
