Sweet design for Breitsamer's honey

Sweet design for Breitsamer's honey

Breitsamer + Ulrich GmbH & Co KG worked together with Greiner Packaging International and a renowned closure manufacturer to modify the packaging of its honey bottles. Grenier developed a new PET honey bottle using a stretch blow molding process which helped alleviate the total packaging weight.

"We use our exclusive kavoblow technology for this. It facilitates a highly efficient implementation of individual designs and combines flexibility with productivity. It is therefore particularly ideal for innovative bottles and containers for the food industry,” explains Günter Ausserwöger, head of the Kavo Division at Greiner Packaging. The look and handling of the bottle were enhanced. And thanks to the new base design, the packaging is more stable during the filling process. 

Having honey in plastic bottles is a hygienic alternative and allows for clean handling without dripping as a result of precise dispensing. This is also a convenient option for on-the-go consumers.

The new dose cap with membrane plays an integral part in the bottle’s design. It is fitted with an integrated, tear-off tamper-proof band and is made of polypropylene. Coupled with a highly transparent PET bottle, the system achieves the highest demands for precise dispensing of viscous products.

German-based Breitsamer + Ulrich GmbH & Co KG is known as one of the top-leading European honey bottlers and its products are viewed as high quality with a blend of tradition and are sold in both glass and plastic packaging. Consumers can now find these bottles on store shelves.
