Back Cover

This guide is a tool for industrialists, investors, production and maintenance executives, economists, etc., wishing to develop new projects in the packaging of fruit juice and non-carbonated, non-alcoholic fruit beverages.

The guide addresses the following questions:

What kind of packaging to choose?
Which type is best adapted to the target market?
Which is the cheapest?
How long can the beverage be preserved?
What would be the equipment investment cost?
Which supplier to contact and where?

The guide gives details of the various packaging possibilities, their respective cost, the investment necessary, addresses and fairs/exhibitions useful in the development of a fruit processing enterprise.

Twenty-one different packaging solutions are presented, from the pre-formed plastic pouch to the tin can and the glass bottle.

Classification is made by investment cost for packaging machinery and by packaging cost per unit produced so that each promoter can select the system best adapted to the financial means available and to the target market.
