What is the perception of the wine in a box vs. the wine in the bottle?
You might think that wine that comes in a bottle is a better product than what is inside the box. But let’s look at the actual packaging break down.
- Better Oxygen Barrier
The wine within the box is sealed in a bag which is a better oxygen barrier. This means the wine will taste better for a longer time after opening.
- Better UV Barrier
A box provides a better light (UV) barrier than a bottle.
- Better Sustainability
Finally, the box contains 4x times more product than a similar size bottle (more sustainable packaging).
So when it comes to packaging do aesthetics matter? Yes, absolutely! But, beyond looks, your approach to total packaging management can also make sure your product stays safe during transport. Packaging provides the first impression we have with products. The packaging generates the perception of the product inside, both good and bad.
Mold can even change your customer’s perception. (If a customer perceives that the packaging around their product has been compromised, then they also will wonder if the product itself has been compromised.)
