10 GOLDEN RULES TO FOLLOW WHEN SELECTING THE BEST PACKAGING SOLUTION FOR LIQUID PRODUCTS
Here is a list of tips to help you select the best plastic packaging solution that meets your needs. Read on Let us help you make the right choice.
1. SUFFICIENT CAPACITY
Choosing the right storage capacity for a liquid product is the first step.
If a plastic container is half empty, it could impact the preservation of the product, and from a marketing perspective, it could give the impression that there is less product than there should be.
2. THE RIGHT MATERIAL
The plastic packaging should be made from materials that best meet the characteristics of your liquid products.
Consult our product technical data sheets to see if the product offers the right elasticity, air- and water-tightness, barrier, etc.
Our PET HB PE, PET ALU PE, APET PE HB and PE HB ECO materials are the best solution to package any type of liquid products. Contact our team to discuss which solution is the best for you.
3. USER-FRIENDLY OPENING AND CLOSING SYSTEMS
Don’t forget to consider ergonomics when selecting a plastic package solution for liquids.
Consumers want user-friendly, hassle-free containers that are easy to open and close. This is why you should not ignore what the right design could do for you in terms of consumer attraction and retention.
4. THE BRAND AND PRODUCT DESIGN
Each company and product has its own brand identity and the design of the packaging should echo your VBI. There is no better way to make sure your product marketing and promotional initiatives meet the demands of consumers.
Plastic packaging is an excellent communication medium. What better to make sure the consumer journey starts on a high note as soon as a consumer picks up your product?
5. DIGITAL PRINTING CUSTOMISATION
The best way to make your product packaging stand out is to make sure it is tailor-made to your brand. Digital printing is a highly popular solution because of user-friendly, razor-sharp results it offers.
By customising your packaging, you can more effectively market your brand and products so that they stand out among the competition.
6. SHELF LIFE
A plastic packaging solution for liquids must be able to ensure the shelf life of a product.
It should be made from materials that properly protect the contents against odours, light, oxygen and any other type elements that could directly and quickly impact a product’s shelf-life
7. SAFE TRANSPORT
The packaging you choose should ensure the safe transport of the product. Product integrity should be maintained throughout the chain of custody. The packaging solution should be robust enough to ensure the transport of the product from the factory or warehouse to the point of sale without it being damaged.
While ensuring product integrity as at the heart of our packaging solutions, we also believe in the importance of offering sustainable packaging solutions. This is why we are constantly striving to reduce the thickness of our materials so that they are lighter and more environmentally-friendly.
9. PRICE POINT
Packaging represents a significant investment but spending more does not necessarily mean you are getting more bang for your buck.
There are several elements that will inform how much you spend on packaging. However, you should always keep top-of-mind your product’s unique characteristics so you are getting a packaging solution that truly meets your needs.
10. THE MARKET LANDSCAPE
