About plastic juice cup

A juice cup is a round container for storing, packaging and drinking fruit juice. Each cup is usually made of food-grade material such as glass, plastic, foil, or laminated carton packaging. The purpose of the fresh juice cup is to hold the fruit juice in a safe, hygienic, and attractive container until the end user consumes the juice by drinking it directly from the plastic juice cup or with a straw.

Benefits of Using Plastic Juice Cups

Reusable juice cups with lids are lightweight, portable, easy to discard, and recyclable. Orange juice cups made of polypropylene can withstand high and low temperatures without getting deformed. Small juice cups made of plastic are more cost-effective than heavier glass juice cups. They cost less to transport and store. Juice cups made of plastic are also less likely to get broken than glass.

Why Plastic Juice Cups Can Serve as Effective Fruit Juice Packaging?

Juice cups with a lid can serve as effective packaging for fruit juice under certain conditions. As long as the juice is not going to be transported carelessly over long distances and transferred to and fro multiple storage locations, sealed disposable juice cups may be suitable. In such cases, the cup may require a soft inner seal and a hard plastic outer cover to boost food safety. Transparent plastic juice cups are also good for branding. Branded stickers may be placed on the cups and their designs may be changed without redesigning the juice cup. Various types of plastic materials are used for packaging juice, such as PE, PVC, PP, and PET. PET tends to be the most widely used for packaging because it can withstand high temperatures. PET is also an eco-friendly material because it can be recycled many times, and it has been tagged as a sustainable plastic option. However, PET cups need to be properly protected during transport to prevent them from getting cut or split.
