Choosing plastic or glass bottles for your new juice business is an important decision, and there may be more factors than you consider. I will explore some of the advantages and disadvantages of each method:


Small Plastic Juice Bottles
advantage:
Inexpensive-16oz/500ml (when purchased in bulk) the landed cost per bottle is usually less than $0.60.
Light-cheaper to transport and easier to move and store.
Durable-fewer broken bottles.
Disadvantages:
Not so premium look and feel.
Pollution-worse for the environment.
Toxicity-Most plastic bottles do not contain BPA, but some reusable rigid plastic bottles (think baby bottles) contain BPA, which may be harmful to humans [FDA].

Glass juice bottle

advantage:

Quality look and feel. It is very important for the image and marketing of high-quality juice brands.
Reusable-more environmentally friendly.
Return plan-If a customer brings back an empty bottle, some juice companies will provide a $1 credit. This will bring the customer back to the store where they might buy.
Non-toxic-glass does not contain potentially harmful chemicals.

Disadvantages:

Expensive-depending on the quantity purchased, a standard 16oz/500ml glass beverage bottle can easily exceed $2.00 per bottle. When ordering large quantities (thousands), the landed cost (including shipping) can usually be reduced to approximately US$1.00 to US$1.50 (in the United States).
Labor costs-If you run a return plan, removing labels, cleaning and disinfecting the bottles will increase labor costs and require additional space and equipment to clean the bottles.
Damaged-glass bottles may break during transportation and storage, causing some waste.
Once you decide whether to use plastic or glass, you need to find a supplier.
