In the Dark about New Light-Blocking Dairy Packaging?
Our dairy customers have a lot to think about when it comes to product packaging. Not only do they need a great looking label; they are also faced with challenges that aren’t factors in other industries such as:
- Extending shelf-life
- Vitamin and color protection
- Light-Blocking capabilities
- Helping to keep off-flavors from forming
Existing packaging to address these concerns have numerous disadvantages. White-pigmented HDPE bottles, multilayer-HDPE bottles with a black middle layer, or highly pigmented PET bottles can be expensive. Plus multilayer-PET bottles lose their recycling advantages, so what’s the point?
No need to cry over spilt milk! We work extensively with Eklipse™ shrink sleeves, a new product that provides light protection and extends the shelf life for milk, cream, drinkable yogurt, protein beverages and some juices. This shrink sleeve has a light transmission rate of <1% and does not require 100% ink coverage to achieve light barrier. This is a significant innovation because moving the light barrier from the bottle to the label helps save on container costs and allows consumers to recycle.
Eklipse™ shrink sleeves also offer the brightest white opaque film technology available today. This means that your product will be a stand out on crowded dairy shelves.
Seeing is believing! For more details about the benefits of Eklipse™ including a sample, email:
