Less ecological footprintPackaging is one of the major concerns for the safety of our planet. At Philippos Hellenic Goods we put great effort daily, to stand up to environmentally friendly solutions.
Bag-in-box is the answer. Philippos Hellenic Goods uses 3L bag in box for Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Designed to store and transfer liquids, it is made of multiple metalized film layers, to be filled with food products and withstand temperatures up to 85 degrees Celsius. Bag-in-box is, in fact, a double packaging. It comprises of a bag made of a special material suitable for food and of an outer freestanding recycled cardboard box with the list of lawful requirements.
The disposal of the empty bag-in-box is also more environmentally friendly than any other packaging: when empty, transport costs are reduced since there is less volume and weight and when used, the recyclable cardboard wrapping the bag, separates easily, so the various components are sorted out and recycled separately, reducing environmental impact.
More qualityAnother advantage of bag-in-box packaging is that it preserves, even more, the quality and flavour of its extra virgin olive oil.
Using this particular packaging is beneficial to both our company and our customers. To begin with, it protects the olive oil from altering factors, such as light, oxygen and moisture and helps to maintain all its nutritional and organoleptic properties. The bag remains sealed inside the box, while the little tap on the bottom adjusts the flow and prevents the air from entering, keeping the olive oil intact and making easy and convenient to refill the Philippos Premium glass bottles. The bag and tap work together to prolong the shelf life before and after the package is opened.
