CHOOSING A BOTTLE

By the time you are ready to place an order for your packaging, you should already have thought through the following factors.

different size olive oil bottles

Bottle Size

Glass olive oil bottles are typically sized in milliliters. Give careful thought to your marketing and profit strategy. Do you need multiple price points? Which size(s) will be most profitable for you? What is most convenient for your customers?

Olive oil bottles in different shape

Bottle Shape

Your olive oil label (carefully branded) may dictate your bottle shape. In addition, consider bottle height (does it fit average retail or kitchen shelves?), stability (will it tip over easily?), and its impact on shipping and packaging.

Olive oil bottles in different colour

Bottle Color

Bottle Color: All light sources are detrimental to olive oil quality, because light accelerates oxidation. Clear bottles that showcase your beautiful olive oil are tempting to the customer, but darker colors may be a much smarter play if you want consumers to actually like the taste of the oil.

CHOOSING A CLOSURE

There are three basic types of bottle closures commonly used in the olive oil industry: bar tops, screw tops, and Ropp tops. 

Bar Top Closure for olive oil bottle

Bar Tops

Bar tops are plastic discs with a natural or synthetic cork attached to the underside. Typically, the plastic disc is designed to have the same diameter as the outside diameter of the neck of the bottle. Bar tops are usually implemented with a shrink-wrap capsule in order to make them tamper proof. 

Screw Top Closure for olive oil bottle

Screw Tops

Screw tops, also called screw caps, come in a number of configurations but are almost always plastic. Some screw caps have the same outer dimension as the neck of the bottle, others are wider. They usually will have some sort of sealing wafer on the underside of the lid to ensure a tight seal once the lid is screwed down. 

Ropp Top Closure for olive oil bottle

Ropp Tops

Ropp Tops are the metal twist tops that one finds on many large production bottles. The defining characteristic of Ropp tops is that there is a tamper proof ring on the closure. When you first twist off the closure, you can hear it tear away from the lower portion and know that the bottle has not been opened since it was initially sealed. 

THE FINISHING TOUCH

Sometimes, a unique finishing touch can be the biggest point of difference on the retail shelf and may be the reason your oil sells over other options.

Schrink wrap capsule for olive oil bottle

Shrink-Wrap Capsules

Shrink wrap capsules are the most common finishing touch used to create a tamper proof seal on olive oil bottles. They are made of plastic and can be shrunk to fit with inexpensive equipment such as a heat gun or a shrink wrapper. They can be personalized if bought in large quantities.

Raffia wrap for olive oil bottle

Raffia

This is a beautiful finishing touch, a good drip barrier, and an excellent marketing tool but it has many drawbacks. It is expensive, difficult, and time consuming to apply. Some domestic raffia is dyed and may stain. This is only a practical option for small lots or home use.

Wax finish for olive oil bottle

Wax Finishes

Wax finishes are an excellent choice for marketing purposes. They are elegant, come in different colors, and can help create a beautiful finished product. They are, however, difficult to apply and to remove, and are more expensive than a simple shrink-wrap.

Foil Capsules

Foil capsules are made of metal. They are commonly used on wine bottles. A spinner is needed to apply them. They are more expensive to buy and to apply.

Bag-in-Box

Bag-in-Box preserves the quality and extends the shelf life of olive oil. It protects the olive oil from exposure to air and in-contact with oxygen upon opening.

Bag in Box 3 ltr
What is Bag-in-Box?
Bag-in-Box is a single use packaging solution ideal for preserving the content inside the bag. It consists of three elements:
- A strong bladder or plastic bag, seated inside a box, usually made of several layers of metallised film offering a barrier to light.
- A box usually made of corrugated cardboard preventing light from penetrating in.
- An air-tight dispenser or tap consisting a one-way valve preventing oxygen and moisture coming in contact with the olive oil.

What are the Enemies of Extra Virgin Olive Oil?
Light, heat and oxygen are three enemies of extra virgin olive oil. When it has prolong and constant contact with any of these, the extra virgin olive oil will go rancid or become bad very soon.
In a conventional packaging such as glass bottle, when we pour out the olive oil, we could expect an equal amount of oxygen and moisture goes into the bottle. Exposure to oxygen and moisture is compounded if the bottle is half empty or left uncapped.

UNOPENED

A tamper-proof tear strip blocks the tap in a closed position until removed.

TAP

It has been designed to reduce oxygen permeation and to insure a tight seal.

SIDE VIEW

The tap is made of special fins inside the pouring hole to better direct the flow of the oil.

OPENED TAP

A small amount of pressure either on the winged piston or both is sufficient to obtain a regular flow rate.

Bag-in-Box packaging solves two BIG problems – light and oxygen

The bag and its corrugated cardboard provide double protective layers for any possible light penetration to the olive oil.
When the bag is dispensing the olive oil through the tap, the bag collapses keeping the air away from the olive oil.
The push-button tap, which is attached to the bag, has a one-way valve design preventing air and oxygen from getting inside the bag and coming into contact with the olive oil.

Keeping Freshness & Flavour
Bag-in-Box hence can keep the freshness and aromatic flavour of olive oil consistently over a longer period of time versus if it is packaged in glass bottle or tin, in particular once it has been opened.

A study conducted by the University of Córdoba has shown that Bag-in-Box has the lowest oxidation in terms of its peroxide value, and K270 and K232 as compared to glass bottle, PET bottle and tin packaging, whereas PET bottle packaging has the highest oxidation rate.

Bag-in-Box preserves the quality and extends the shelf life of olive oil. It protects the olive oil from exposure to air and in-contact with oxygen upon opening.

Other Benefits
Noticeably, the advantages of Bag-in-Box are its weight, cost, size, and environment friendliness.

Bag-in-Box is light. For a 5 litre Bag-in-Box, it weighs 5 kg. For an equivalent 5 litre of glass bottles, it is a whopping 9.2 kg.
The packaging cost of Bag-in-Box, as compared to glass bottle or tin, is relatively cheaper and hence making the olive oil more affordable.
We can also decant just-enough of olive oil into a bottle we like for our everyday use, and refill the bottle again when it is empty. Unlike a glass bottle, once we open, we have to consume the olive oil within one to two month in order to savour its freshness and flavours.

Bag-in-Box holds higher volume of content, such as 3, 5 or 10  litre. Therefore, less packaging or labeling is required. The material used is lighter than the other plastic alternatives, reducing the carbon footprint during transportation.
Since the olive oil stays fresh longer, we will not throw away bottles we do not finish on time, reducing waste.
