Packaging Tip

Elevate Your Food Packaging Product Line

There are many ways to bring food product packaging to the next level. One example is tamper evident packaging. When packaging food products, offering a layer of tamper evidence in the form of shrink bands, induction liners, or plastisol lined caps can provide a higher level of security and comfort for customers. It's also important to make FDA approved packaging choices for food product lines. FDA approved packaging often gives customers peace of mind when purchasing, which could elevate you above competitors. Incorporating convenient dispensing caps is another excellent way to win customers over. If you are packaging salad dressing, cooking sauces, marinades, honey, and more, dispensing caps allow customers to pour products with ease. Finally, after choosing the container that best showcases your product, create an eye-catching custom label to elevate your food packaging to a professional level. Custom labeling is an easy way to display your ingredients, food allergy warnings, nutritional facts, and more while blending in your company logo and branding for the greatest design impact.

Traditional glass syrup bottles are available in both 8 oz and 12 oz sizes. These glass bottles come paired with black polypropylene ribbed plastic caps with PE liners or white metal plastisol lined caps. The PE liner in the plastic cap is an excellent general-purpose liner with a broad application base. The plastisol liners included in the metal caps will adhere to the rim of the syrup bottles creating an airtight, tamper evident seal when heated and cooled correctly. The syrup bottles feature a sturdy base, rounded sides, and a small handle on the neck, providing a functional and stylish look for your packaging. Choose these classic syrup bottles for products that could include birch syrup, cooking oils, dessert toppings, and more.
