Olive Oil Packaging Tips
Storage and packaging is a very significant step of any food, including olive oil. In fact, olive oil shelf life can be influenced by different factors, from olive quality to processing technologies; however, the selection of proper storage conditions, including packaging, can be of great importance. Hence, the time you start the olive oil packaging process, you must have a thought about the following factors.
- Study the products that have already gained shelf space. What makes one stand out from the others?
- Check about what kind of packaging is used and why. The answers might surprise you. Often times, it is how attentively the oil is packaged that makes the difference between moving off the shelves and gathering dust on them.
- Equally important is that your package protects the product. A clear bottle might show off a pretty harvest-fresh color, but it certainly won’t protect the integrity of the oil from damaging exposure to light. So check what kind of bottle you would want to store the olive oil. What kind of closure would you want to seal the bottle? etc
- Dimensionally accurate
- Leakage proof
