Foreword

This document is intended for all manufacturers, investors, production or maintenance directors, economists, etc., who intend to develop a new method of packaging fruit juices, uncarbonated fruit drinks, or non-alcoholic fruit drinks.

The document explains the different possibilities for packaging, their respective cost and corresponding investment, as well as the addresses or exhibitions useful for the efficient development of the project.

Twenty-one different packaging types are individually introduced (Technical filing-cards 1 to 21 in Chapter III); this list is not exhaustive, the world of packaging being in constant evolution.

A classification has been made according to the cost of investment of each packaging machine and according to the packaging cost (see Chapter II).

When one or more types of packaging have been selected, it is useful to check the list of suppliers (packaging materials and packaging machines) in the appendices; this list is also not exhaustive and it is advisable to investigate further in order to obtain technical and financial offers from each supplier; it is important to contact the packaging material suppliers present in the country of investment and a visit must be paid to each of these suppliers in order to check their production capacity, the quality of end products, costs, etc.

The abbreviations used throughout the document are explained in the glossary (see Table of Contents).

Which type of packaging to choose?


Which is the best-suited to the market?
