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 one 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 choosing the packaging are linked to considerations of different nature, such as the weight, the sustainability at the origin of the materials, the recyclability of the same and the conservation properties of the oil.

In choosing the right packaging for Boniviri oil, we have rethought traditional choices, keeping only the necessary components and simplifying the complexity that is often created by marketing needs. Our choices started with 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 for storing oil because it is inert and does not allow the passage of components. between the container and the contents (such as plastic does).

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

The second choice concerns the cap .

We have chosen one 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 guarantees 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 it could cause more defective bottles and therefore more product waste. Above the cap, as a seal, we have chosen a transparent PET capsule (instead of the classic one in PVC), to be recycled in the plastic separate collection, together with the cap.

The label is perhaps the most distinctive element: it is in FSC paper from the Favini Crush line, made with by-products of agro-industrial processes (in our case olives) that replace up to 15% of cellulose from trees. Its carbon footprint is reduced by 20% compared to a traditional label. We have chosen to avoid ink waste and to concentrate information in a single central label, so as to reduce print waste and simplify labeling operations.

Finally the box . We often find the bottles inside shockproof plastic protections. We tried to avoid this by choosing a cardboard box with a special beehive technology that allows you 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 from year to year, together with our suppliers and together with you.
