How Does a Bag-In-Box System Work?
Either in pillow format or a form-fit design, the bag-in-box system minimizes materials used in packaging, maximizes reuse and recycling potential, and delivers a great end-user experience. Some benefits which can be achieved by using bag-in-box for food and beverage include:
- Efficient product evacuation: With food costs increasing rapidly, end-users want to use the entire product they purchased. Bag-in-box systems maximize product evacuation more efficiently than rigid containers, and reduce the amount of inaccessible product.
- Supply chain efficiencies: Traditional packaging forms, such as cans, bottles, or jars, are bulky and heavy to ship. Bag-in-box components arrive flat at the plant, and offer better shaping efficiency when filled than jugs and bottles. The space reductions and reduced weight of bag-in-box packaging are very appealing, especially in light of high fuel prices.
- Material availability: Although the shortage of beer bottles in Germany may make for humorous news stories, the shortage of glass products is very real.
- Product freshness: With its increased ability to keep out air, bag-in-box for food and beverage packaging can significantly extend freshness and shelf-life.
- Cost savings: Bag-in-box packaging uses less material and replaces many rigid packages, thereby offering significant production cost savings.
- Eco-conscious: Materials in bag-in-box packaging are lighter-weight than other plastic packaging alternatives, with fewer greenhouse emissions and lower energy consumption required for production.
- Product safety: Because the product is dispensed directly into and from the bag-in-box, there is less opportunity for outside contamination from filling through end-use.
