Give Your Dairy Sales A Boost

Switching to PET packaging can breathe new life into dairy sales and margins. At a stroke, appealing features like bottle shape, premium finishes, color, design and sleek labeling (no sleeve) mean a PET bottle can be cool in ways that regular milk packaging never will be.

Packaging milk in PET bottles also offers real benefits for consumers. PET bottles are robust and easy to open and close, even one-handed (try that with a carton!), and both pouring and drinking from the bottle are a snap. Result: greatly improved handling and in-store appeal.

We also have an-depth podcast if you want to know more about switching to PET.

Problem solving solution

Preserve the taste, improve branding

The flavor and nutritional characteristics of long shelf-life milk deteriorate over time when exposed to light. However, by adding a light barrier, this issue can be solved. And until the introduction of Holcomer in 2005, no real-world light barrier additive had been developed for PET.

Holcomer rewrites the rules by creating a powerful barrier that prevents light penetration in a monolayer PET bottle. So, no metallized inner layer is needed. No black inner layer. No opaque sleeve and bottles can be laser-marked without the need for additional lasermarking additives.
