Description

Abstract

"Olive Oil in PET vs Glass Bottles" is the second published study within our EES of Packaging™research series. These studies emphasize the Economic impact and the Environmental impact of specific products, packages, and processes."

In this study, we examine the alternatives for packaging olive oil in a PET bottle or a glass bottle. We include a complete value chain and life cycle analysis in the research.

Undoubtedly, you have read or heard diametrically opposed economic and environmental claims about packaging from sources with equally good reputations. This common occurrence leaves industry participants, prospects, and customers frustrated and uncertain as to which results should be believed. We solve this dilemma in the EES of Packaging™ research series.

Our SavvyPack® Index is at the heart of this solution. Our SavvyPack® Index complements our SavvyPack® Analysis Service. Primarily, we analyze the economic and environmental impacts of packaging through our Analytical Service and compare the results utilizing our SavvyPack® Index. We also include package performance results in the index.

With this new study you can:

  • Understand the points of view of competing industries
  • Learn, quantitively, how competing claims are constructed by their sponsors
  • Break free from the stalemate caused by competing claims
  • Discover a powerful and independent service and methodology designed specifically for package industry issues
