When it comes to packaging, nothing can be left to chance

When it comes to packaging, nothing can be left to chance

For the packaging we started from a goal: to choose the best materials for quality and safety, with a view to sustainability and waste reduction.

The packaging of extra virgin olive oil represents an interesting challenge in terms of sustainability.

 

In this regard, the criteria for the choice of packaging are linked to considerations of different nature, such as weight, sustainability at the origin of the materials, recyclability and conservation properties of the oil.
 

In choosing the right packaging for Boniviri's oil, we have reconsidered the traditional choices, keeping only the necessary components and simplifying the complexity that is often created by marketing needs. Our choices started from a goal: to choose the best materials for quality and safety, with a view to sustainability and waste reduction.

The first choice concerns the container par excellence: glass.

 

Although a heavier material than plastic and aluminum (and therefore more impacting in terms of greenhouse gas emissions related to transport), glass is the best material to preserve oil because it is inert and does not allow the passage of components between the container and the contents (as for example plastic does). 

In this case our choice was based on quality and safety. However, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we chose to buy the bottles from the closest possible glassworks: in Marsala, Sicily, so as to reduce the impact of transport. To reduce the ratio between content and container (product-to-packaging ratio), compared to the half-liter bottle, we chose a 750 ml bottle, which weighs just over 500 grams, with a high percentage of recycled glass. A compromise that combines quality and sustainability.

 

The second choice concerns the cap.

 

We have chosen one made of plastic material that allows you to pour the oil comfortably, light in color and therefore easily recyclable. It is a cap certified for use with oil and ensures optimal and safe storage, reducing the risk of defective bottles. The choice of a cork stopper is in fact potentially more sustainable at the origin, but could cause more defective bottles and therefore more waste of product. Above the cork, as a seal, we have chosen a transparent PET capsule (instead of the classic PVC one), to be recycled in the plastic separate collection, together with the cork.

The label is perhaps the most distinctive element


It is in FSC paper of the Favini Crush line, made with by-products of agro-industrial processing (in our case olives) that replace up to 15% of the cellulose coming from trees. Its carbon footprint is reduced by 20% compared to a traditional label. We have chosen to avoid ink waste and to concentrate the information in a single central label, in order to reduce the printing waste and simplify the labelling operations.


Finally, the box. Often we find the bottles inside plastic shockproof protections. We tried to avoid this by choosing a cardboard box with a special hive technology that allows to protect the bottles transported inside.


Packaging is a challenge that we have taken up, but we have not yet won: our search for the best possible packaging for quality, safety and sustainability evolves year after year, together with our suppliers and with you.
