Seductive Spirits

As design and marketing professionals, we are tasked with the challenge of conveying the unique charm of a frosty beer, a ruby-hued Syrah, or a sublime single-malt Scotch to a fickle consumer who may only have a few seconds of shopping to spare. Often our goal of seducing the eye of passing strangers is made even more challenging when natural cues such as product color, taste and aroma are obscured by the package we are decorating.

Our solutions must be fluid and forward thinking, as we try and stay ahead of a wave of new product formulations, packaging formats and emerging product categories. Sometimes, we find inspiration in other consumer packaged goods markets.

The allure of clear
In the early 90s, marketers and consumers alike were in love with the novelty of clear products. This phenomenon began in the personal hygiene category with Ivory Soap and crossed over into soft drinks with products like Pepsi Clear.

At this same time, Miller Brewing Company, understanding that light beer sales were reaching a fever pitch, began tinkering with its filtering process and succeeded in producing a low calorie, low carbohydrate beer that had the lucky side effect of coming out of the process completely clear. Hoping that it had just the right product to tap into the Zeitgeist, Miller quickly began taste tests for its new miracle brew. As luck would have it, in blind tastings consumers claimed they enjoyed the product as much as the old-fashioned “beer-colored” stuff.

A plan for test marketing the newly dubbed Miller Clear was hatched with a product debut scheduled in Austin, TX; Minneapolis, MN; and Richmond, VA. Our agency was promptly engaged to work on the branding and packaging. The brief was simple—highlight the clarity of the beverage in an attempt to visually combat the negative image of beer as being overly heavy and too filling. In short, our design would telegraph lightness and refreshment.

Our not-so-secret fear was the positive associations of a clear product would be outweighed by the perception of neutrality in flavor, aroma and body. For years, we’d heard from worldly beer aficionados that American beers tasted like water. But our client had a mountain of research claiming lightness was king and that taste had been prevalidated.

To satisfy the brief, we used a brisk, electric blue background to reinforce the idea of lightness and refreshment. We developed elongated, faceted typography for the brand to suggest the purity of ice crystals and flanked the logo with sheaves of grain to dial up the beer cues. We added a beaded up water effect to add a greater sense of refreshment. Despite our attempts, the consumers weren’t impressed. Initial sales seemed promising but repeat trials were slim to non-existent. The product never made it out of the initial test market. It is true that we taste with our eyes.

Color has so much to tell us with beer. In packaging, the colors we choose can help us describe a beer style. Is it a light lager, full-bodied ale, or a hefty stout? We can use color to visually unleash aromas like the pungent whiff of hops or the heavy syrupy scent of malt. Color can help establish a sense of place—a technique that is used to great effect with the emerald forest green wrapping every bottle of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Thinking inside the box
First and foremost, a package is the vessel for delivering a product from the manufacturing facility to the home and it must offer flawless protection at every step along the way. Glass has earned its distinction as the premiere packaging material for wine because it creates an excellent oxygen barrier, enhances product stability on shelf, enables consumers to judge the product inside with their own eyes and offers an elegant look and feel.

On the negative side, glass’s strength-to-weight ratio is inferior to paper or plastic. Graphics are often printed on a secondary label, which increases the cost of goods and rarely takes advantage of the package’s full real estate.

Wine producers have struggled with finding alternatives to glass packaging for decades. The format that seems to be the best candidate for the solution is the bag-in-box or wine box, which has been around in some form or another since the late 60s. Despite the historically low quality reputation of boxed wines, there are many compelling benefits for distributing wine this way. The format offers good shelf- stability after opening, functionality is improved in large formats, there is less packaging waste, and yes, there are also cost savings that can be passed along to the end consumer.

But some companies have debuted boxed wines with promising results. The Wineberry wine box with its hand-applied label takes on the appearance of personal, wooden wine cask. Four Wine’s cylindrical tube, fine matte paper appearance and metallic gold detailing does a nice job of bringing traditional wine material cues to the category.

We are convinced, the consumer will become accustomed to a new form factor, but just like the introduction of well-crafted wines in screw top bottles, boxed wines will take some getting used to. It will be difficult work but if we use the color cues from the language of wine packaging to denote flavor, texture and finish, carefully applied details such as foil, elaborate die cuts and richly textured paper, we can underscore quality messages and reinforce a sense or rarity, care and wine’s idyllic beginnings on a wine box.

Designing for limitations in form can be just as difficult as designing packaging for a challenging new product. Without the ability to see the wine through the box, you have to work that much harder to represent what is inside of it.

By experimenting with new ways of integrating natural materials into box-in-bag structures that conjure up familiar cues such as cork, burlap and straw, we can get consumers to look beyond the workaday utility of a paperboard box and think about what is inside of it.

Novelis launches world’s first certified recycled-content aluminum beverage can





Posted by Lisa McTigue Pierce, Executive Editor — Packaging Digest, 5/3/2013 9:43:21 AM


Novelis evercan


Novelis, the world leader in aluminum rolling and recycling, has announced the commercial availability of the industry’s first independently certified, high-recycled content aluminum designed specifically for the beverage can market. With a minimum of 90 percent recycled aluminum, the Novelis evercan aluminum beverage can body sheet will allow beverage companies to deliver soft drinks, beer and other popular beverages in a low-carbon footprint consumer package. 

“We are excited to be able to deliver yet another tangible result of our commitment to sustainable aluminum product innovation,” says Phil Martens, Novelis president/CEO. “Our Novelis evercan high-recycled content beverage can body sheet, backed by the industry’s first independent certification program, represents tremendous progress in sustainable consumer products packaging. As the world’s leading supplier of aluminum beverage can sheet, this is an important step toward delivering on our ultimate vision of an aluminum can with up to 100 percent recycled content.”

Novelis evercan aluminum sheet has been certified for high-recycled content by SCS Global Services, a trusted leader in third-party environmental, sustainability and food quality certification, auditing, testing and standards development. Novelis is initially offering aluminum can body sheet guaranteed to contain at least 90 percent recycled content. When combined with the can end made of a different alloy during the can making process, the new Novelis evercan will enable beverage companies to market their beverages in standard 12-oz aluminum cans certified as made from a minimum of 70 percent recycled content. The Novelis evercan aluminum beverage can body sheet is commercially available now in North America and Europe, and will be available worldwide later this year.

The company’s efforts to increase the recycling of beverage cans is a key component of its plan to dramatically increase the recycled content of its products across its global operations to 80 percent by 2020. Already the world’s largest recycler of aluminum, Novelis has announced capital investments of close to $500 million over the last two years that will double global recycling capacity to 2.1 million metric tons by 2015. Recycling aluminum requires 95 percent less energy, and produces 95 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), than manufacturing primary aluminum. 

“This first phase of the Novelis evercan high-recycled content initiative serves as a critical catalyst for Novelis to work more closely with consumer brand customers, our supply chain partners and other community stakeholders to increase end-of-life recycling of used beverage containers,” says John Gardner, Novelis chief sustainability officer. “We encourage wide participation from other aluminum suppliers, beverage and packaging companies, retailers and distributors, recyclers, municipalities, environmental groups and consumers themselves in promoting the use of more sustainable consumer packaging through aluminum recycling.”

Quotes from partners and supporters:
• SCS Global Services managing director Stowe Hartridge-Beam:
“We are pleased to have independently certified the exceptionally high levels of recycled content in Novelis’ aluminum can sheet, which represents a new benchmark of performance in an industry that has been long known for its recycling efforts. Novelis’ proven performance is evidence of its commitment to preserving natural resources, reducing waste and advancing sustainability.” 

• Stuart L. Hart, SJ Johnson chair in sustainable enterprise professor, Cornell University, and author of “Capitalism at the Crossroads”:
“Novelis’ launch of the evercan is an important part of its larger strategy to de-link the production of aluminum from greenhouse-gas intensive bauxite mining and primary aluminum production. Through their imagination and collaboration across the supply chain, they are reinventing the aluminum industry.” 

• Jonathon Porritt, founder/director, Forum for the Future:
“This is a really exciting development. The benefits of using recycled rather than prime-based aluminum are well understood, and for Novelis to be able to guarantee 90 percent recycled content beverage can body sheet represents a real breakthrough.”

Pet Bottles : Safe Or Dangerous?

Pet Bottles : Safe Or Dangerous?

Polyethylene terephthalate or PET is a thermoplastic polymer resin that belongs to the polyester family and is mainly used in combination with glass fiber for the manufacture of synthetic fibers, liquid containers,thermoforming applications and engineering resins. It was in the 1970’s that PET bottles came to be rapidly manufactured using blow moulding techniques and thus it became an excellent material for beverage bottles. Some of the outstanding beneficial properties of PET include its lightweight, durability, strong material, extremely  good optical properties and sufficient gas barrier performance. PET bottles are made by employing a process called ‘injection stretch blow moulding’ which enhances  the properties of PET. Today, PET is used as a raw material for manufacturing bottles and containers for packaging a varied range of food products and consumer goods such as soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products etc.

PET bottles can be recycled so as to reuse the material with which they are manufactured and to lessen the amount of waste that goes to landfills. They are also recycled and reused for solar water disinfection in some of the developing nations.

However, environmentalists have raised serious concerns over the indiscriminate use of PET bottles. According to them, PET bottles have the potential to cause significant health hazards for users. Scientists and reserachers at the Goethe University in Frankfurt discovered that estrogenic compounds leach from the plastic in PET bottles into water. There is a strong probability thatcertain unidentified chemicals in these plastics have the extreme potential to interfere with estrogen and other reproductive hormones, causing disastrous health hazards.

Environmentalists and scientists recommend that PET bottles including single-use water, soda and juice bottles must not be reused. The Green Guide reports that such bottles could be safe only for one-time use and reuse should be strictly avoided. Studies reveal that they may leach DEHP(Bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate)  another possible human carcinogen, into water which could create serious health risks. The Berkeley Ecology Center has come up with a recent discovery that the manufacture of PET bottles uses tremendous amounts of energy and resources and releases toxic pollutants into the atmosphere that ultimately contributes to global warming.

A New Heat-Resistant Plastic "ring Treasure" Bottles And More Competitive

A New Heat-Resistant Plastic "ring Treasure" Bottles And More Competitive

The past two years in the domestic beverage supermarket shelves, in addition to domed stadiums Coke, Sprite and other carbonated beverages, non-carbonated health drinks (tea, fruit water, fruit juice) in the market is quietly rising. Tea beverages, for example, 1997 annual output of less than 20 million tons; in 1998 to reach nearly 40 million tons; in 1999, “the sun rose,” “Chef Kang” and “unification”, “Huiyuan” “Odyssey,” “Gatorade” “Bi-Cheng Lu “and some domestic power companies have to market high-quality, multi-flavored non-carbonated beverages. Is expected in the near future, non-carbonated drinks will become the mainstream of China’s soft drinks.

With the rapid development of non-carbonated beverages, packaged as a significant problem. The traditional glass bottles, two cans, three-piece cans and Tetra Pak packaging, etc., due to poor security, lack of intuitive and high cost of a range of issues such as weakening the competitiveness of the market and eventually phased out; market, the popular polyester (PET) bottles can not withstand high temperatures can not be high-temperature sterilization; and applied by the special treatment of heat-resistant PET bottles (PET or PET / PEN mixed), in addition to high costs, the hot filling of the large-scale application is also subject to many restrictions. For example: a narrow temperature range of hot filling, bottle storage life span of only 4-6 weeks to recover the high cost of acetaldehyde precipitate caused by chemical pollution.

The just concluded in Guangzhou, China International Packaging Industry Exhibition, the Central Symbol Technologies Group (Hong Kong) displayed by polypropylene (PP) materials, through a special two-way stretch blow molding process can be made of hot-fill and transparent “circum – treasure “bottles, the site attracted more attention beverage manufacturers and great interest in the trial. “Wan Bao” bottles for hot filling non-carbonated beverages.

Hot filling plastic lid, the label can use PP material, and the “ring treasure” bottle to form a unified trinity of recovery system, it will be hot-fill packaging is currently the best, most economical environmental protection system.

“Wan Bao” used in hot-filling bottle non-carbonated beverages, besides solving the long-term environmental requirements, compared to hot-fill PET bottles also have the following advantages: First, the cost lower than the hot-fill PET bottles is about 20-25%; two hot filling temperature range widened to 100 ℃; third is the storage period of the bottle no time limits; fourth bottle free acetaldehyde precipitates long-term use not harmful to health.

With regard to every other issue of oxygen, PET materials, Oxygen-PP materials, the sex ratio is superior, but the PP molding processing compartment through the two-way stretch properties of oxygen greatly improved. Southwest Agricultural University, Food Science Professor Liu Qinjin and others on the bi-oriented PP bottles for the shelf life of tea quality changes in the test results show that: PP hot filling beverage bottles with strict conditions of hot filling filling filled with tea, its shelf life as long as half a year. to “ring treasure” applies to non-carbonated beverage bottles to provide a scientific theory. In Taiwan, the “Ring treasure” has been commercially mass-produced bottles for juice and tea drinks.

Scientific Explaination: What’s filtered out of the water? Use a drinking glass just like the old days… Only Better! FACTS & FAQ’s: It is estimated that over a 70-year lifespan, a person drinking tap or mineral water will be ingesting about 200 to 300 pounds of rock that their body cannot use. While most of these microscopic rock minerals will be eliminated from our bodies regularly, some will be stored in our tissues becoming toxic. The primary culprits are calcium salts and over time they can cause gallstones, kidney stones, bone & joint calcification, arthritis, and hardening and blocking our arteries. The presence of other hard metal minerals (some are radioactive!) is suspected to cause other degenerative diseases as well including eye glaucoma, cataracts, hearing loss, emphysema, diabetes, obesity and cancer. These minerals available, especially in “hard” tapwater, are poorly absorbed, or rejected by cellular tissue sites, and, if not evacuated, their presence may cause arterial obstruction, and internal damage.(Dennison 1993, Muehling 1994, Banik 1989) Distillation systems are comparable in contaminant removal, however since many synthetic chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides and chlorine solutions have boiling points lower than water, these chemicals will vaporize and can be carried over into the product water container actually making the collected purified water even more concentrated in those

Pet Beverage Bottles Are One Of The Trends For Future Development

Pet Beverage Bottles Are One Of The Trends For Future Development

PET beverage packaging as the packaging aspect of food production enterprises, more than 30 years people have been exploring ways to replace Glass bottle And tin cans in the packaging materials and containers, and plastic is the best material currently available. It has the characteristics of light weight, can reduce transportation costs. But not every plastic are suitable for Food Packaging . Polyester (PET) food packaging material appears to be a rapid development. The first use of PET bottles soft drinks business in the United States Coca-Cola Company, they used to replace 1.5-liter PET bottles 1 liter glass bottles, resulting in increased sales by 27%. PET containers after the food and beverage packaging gradually become a popular “hot demand.” PET containers light weight and strong firm attracted customers by the market. There is also a big advantage of PET material that can form any shape (the applicability of good), but also can be processed into line with people’s habit of color, text and images can be Print .

PET beverage bottles are one of the trends for future development

Domestic PET bottle of mainstream products, initially limited to colas, mineral water, distilled water used in drinks like packaging container, the application of its excellent performance and reasonable price widely welcomed by users in these drinks packaging Based on the successful application of recent years has been in the heat-resistant PET bottle bottled drinks black tea, green tea, Juice And edible oil, cosmetics, medicine, pesticide and other industries to expand its applications. It is reported that in 1996 China’s production of PET bottle 3 billion in 1998 rose to 5 billion in 2000 to reach 8 billion, 9 billion in 2001, 2002, to reach 10 billion, 13 billion in 2004 to become Plastic packaging materials Largest increase variety. Particularly since 2001 with the sudden emergence of the domestic market of tea drink (tea production in 2001 reached 3,000,000 t), tea beverages 85 ~ 90 hot filling PET bottle PET bottle has become the fastest growing in recent years species. At the same time, PET aseptic cold filling bottle the trend of the rise in Japan and other countries, cause for concern. Aseptic cold filling PET bottle technology will reduce the number of applications the importance of hot-fill PET bottles, PET bottles to increase non-heat-resistant PET bottle production in the whole of GDP. Mentioned earlier non- Carbonated beverages Fruit juice, vegetable juice, various flavors of tea drinks, dairy products, coffee, etc., the traditional hot filling perfusion techniques are used, but this technology PET bottles require a higher (must use high-temperature hot-fill PET bottles ), it was reported that Japan already has one-third of non-carbonated beverages using aseptic cold filling technology, therefore, that the future development of PET beverage bottles are one of the trends. A report said the new nutrient-based drinks and flavors added products can help revitalize the stagnant special drink bottled water market, and PET resin and PET bottle suppliers to bring new opportunities.

Recession in the global economy environment, the 2009 pairs of plastic food and beverage packaging industry in China will no doubt be a cold winter, but the ability of PET bottle industry is expected to warm more than other plastic packaging industry stronger. This is mainly the Chinese beverage market in recent years, especially fruit juice and tea drinks market growing rapidly. As the most mainstream of the current beverage packaging materials will also benefit from this PET bottle, so, PET bottles will have greater market opportunities.

Two Music Was Abandoned Bottling Plant Model Win

Two Music Was Abandoned Bottling Plant Model Win

Shift in consumption, the pressure of cost control over the rapid occupation of the market demand today, Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola The bottling plant model is unique worldwide shaky.

This week, the world’s largest Soft drinks Manufacturer Coca-Cola announced its U.S. headquarters to 15 billion U.S. dollars acquisition of its largest bottling plant and distribution subsidiary of Coca-ColaEnterprisesInc (CCE) has been successful trading business in North America. Last year to 7.8 billion acquisition of Pepsi-Cola’s bottling plant, after the two largest Coca-Cola followed suit, so that once the world Cooperation Examples of bottling plant system suffered heavy losses.

Direct the concentrated solution by the manufacturer will sell the joint venture or cooperation concentrated syrup bottling plant, followed by distribution and channel partners responsible. This model confirms the cola concentrate profits as the mysterious magic of water status, also reflects the music of the bottling plants of two full trust and decentralization, in the given responsibility, but also will bring a lot a lot of profit partners.

Especially in the two-time music first entered the overseas market, can be selected as the local bottling plant manufacturers undoubtedly oligarchies overflow??? This is not just profit, but also in practical operating experience on imitation of multinationals and reference. Music from the two also have access to, although some loss of direct profits, but as long as the mysterious formula in hand, quickly open the market, the natural rolling in profits. Focus on large office, give up the petty profits is the elephant-class multinational companies should horizons.

The so-called long period of division will be divided for a long time together, the two broad-minded music with partners to create the future has finally officially announced the collapse in the 2010s. The reason’s observation seems to have two. One does not like non-canned concentrate Carbonated beverages Is so complex and high investment, rapid intervention is the background of the bottling plant. But time goes by, the popular soft drinks for decades to finally stop the declining once Juice And tea more popular than Coke, bottlers around the face of a 20 million non-carbonated line of investment, it is inevitable not Cu Qimei head. Although the proportion of non-carbonated is up to three percent, however, is a large multinational precautions consistent style. Bottling plant has been alienated with consumer trends, or changes in the promise years.

Second reason are much more direct, cost! Pepsi-Cola bottling plant was willing to purchase price will be 6 billion U.S. dollars from the price increase to 78 million, is expected in the next annual cost savings of 300 million U.S. dollars.
