When it comes to packaging dairy products, the highest priority is keeping your product fresh. While some milk cartons can maintain freshness for weeks, other packaging designs like thin wraps can only keep products fresh for a few days. When choosing the best-suited packaging material for a dairy product, other factors to consider include sustainability, cost and ease of packing.
Many dairy products require specific types of packaging to meet FDA standards, so it’s essential to know which products fall into those categories.
At Innovative Packaging Co. (IPC), we have years of experience supplying packaging products to the dairy industry. Our expert staff has the knowledge to help you choose the most practical and efficient design for your product, whether you’re packaging milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream or another food.
The type of packaging you need for your dairy product depends on several factors. The introduction of thermoformed plastics has enabled stores to keep yogurts and puddings fresh for months. Ice cream cartons in a store’s freezer section can maintain freshness for several weeks at a time.
The most common types of dairy packaging include:
Regardless of the type of dairy product you need to package, IPC can provide you with the best design option to ensure your product’s freshness.
In addition to the basic cartons and bags required to pack dairy products, there are many secondary types of packaging for the dairy industry. Labels are essential for specialty shops looking to market their product and set their brand apart from the competition. If you’re using an overpack to package several boxes, you’ll need moisture-resistant tape to seal the cartons.
IPC has customization processes available for companies looking to personalize their tape with their corporate message or logo. We also offer flexographic printing on the outside of your overpack or folding carton.
