The packaging material is commonly used to package soft drinks, oils and alcoholic drinks. The glass is covered with a tight bottle top and a seal that should not be broken unless the product is opened for use.

  4. The glass is the perfect packaging material for the product. This is because it makes effectively protecting the wine from any air, in an airtight package. In addition, the glass is transparent to allow the customer to look at the drink, and separate between different types of wine, that is black wine and white wine. In addition, the bottle package is appropriate for other uses if it is reused after the primary packaging.

  3. The package is primarily made up of steel. The packaging material is used in the canned food industry and in dairy and supplement industries. Steel is also used to pack non-food products that are not solids or liquid, existing as semi-liquids in their finished form.

  4. The use of steel packaging is excellent for this type of product. This is because steel forms a light metal packaging material that does not increase the weight of the finished product. In addition, the steel used in packaging is mostly stainless steel, which makes it suitable for food products. The package is also strong and prevents any tampering from outside, even if the ordinary pressure like falling is exerted on the product.

  2. I found this packaging in a departmental store at Meijer, East Lansing, Michigan.

Mostly, the cans made of aluminum are used in the soft drink industries to package sodas and non-alcoholic drinks. Moreover, the package is used in alcoholic industries to package beer and other alcoholic drinks.

  4. I believe that this package is excellent for the Diet Soda. This is because the aluminum package is non-toxic and does not corrode.

In addition, the metalized packaging offers proper protection of the salmon and sweet potato recipe. The packaging cannot be destroyed by normal pressure of general handling such as falling.

  4. This is an appropriate packaging for the product being packaged. I believe that the light nature of the packaging material and the simplicity in packaging make this package an excellent material for other products. The paperboard can also be carried empty by folding it appropriately over the edges and using it when needed. However, paperboard is not resistant to water, and absorbs water when exposed. Despite that, the paperboard material is light, therefore does not make the package heavy.
