You’re ready to buy your first supply of juice bottles before launching your new product line but what should you be looking for in a bottle? Selecting the right juice bottle shape and size can feel overwhelming. There are a lot of choices to consider and not all bottles are right for the job.

When selecting Food Packaging Bottle, there are a few areas you need to concentrate on. This is especially important for juice bottles and other beverage or food containers. You want to ensure your bottling supplies are durable and safe for your products and the consumers buying them.

Here are some important tips for selecting and handling your first inventory of juice bottles:

Bisphenol A, or BPA, is an industrial chemical used to make plastic products and resins. This chemical has been used since the 1960s but more recent research has shown the chemical can leach into food and liquids contained in affected plastics. Exposure to BPA can pose possible health risks, especially for unborn children and infants so juice manufacturers are opting to stay away from BPA bottles to ensure the beverage’s safety.

After purchasing your juice containers from, they will need to be properly cleaned before filling. While we work hard to maintain a clean storage facility, the normal warehousing and shipping procedures can never be totally sterile. Bottles will need to be cleaned according to the recommended guidelines at the state or federal level.

If you are planning to use PET plastic bottles as your juice container of choice, know they can only be supplied in full cartons. After PET plastics are removed from the mold, they are immediately packed into polybags to prevent the attraction of dust and other debris. For this reason, only full cartons are sold to keep the original packout intact and the PET bottles safe.

After receiving your supply of bottles, conduct your own personal inspection of each bottle. Look for areas of broken or cracked glass, mold marks, or any other physical issue. Some damage can occur during the shipping process. If you wait until after filling bottles with juice to inspect for signs of damage, you’ll end up losing product. Our team always performs a spot check on products for such quality issues before they are shipped to you. However, if any products arrive in damaged condition, such as chipping, watermarks, or signs of mold, will replace the product at no charge.
