Abstract

The packaging of fruit beverages-both non-carbonated and carbonated is a complex technological branch in the food processing/ packaging industry. The traditional returnable glass bottle has given way to newer metal and plastic containers as well as cartons. The current trend is to improve the conventional containers, extend their share in the large market, to extend the shelf-life of products, provide greater consumer convenience and utimately to produce economic packages. The choice of the beverage container is decided by the factors such as shelf-life required under distribution and use condition, safety and hygiene of the food and containers, consumer appeal as well as environmental concerns of disposal and recycling.
