Widely comprising glass bottles, PET bottles, polyethylene pouches, paperboard cartons, tetra packs and aluminum cans, these solutions also offer relevant and pertinent product information to the consumers, such as nutritional value, ingredient list, manufacturing date, expiry date and directions for usage. Apart from this, they can also be used as a marketing tool to promote the uptake of the packed product.

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing health consciousness among the masses. This has led them to incorporate protein-rich food products in their diets, thereby boosting the sales of dairy products across the globe. Coupled with the growing preference toward the consumption of fresh dairy products, this is creating a positive outlook for the market. The market is further driven by the numerous initiatives undertaken by the key players to introduce innovative product variants in the market.

They are also introducing eco-friendly packaging solutions in the market that are gaining widespread prominence among the masses on account of an enhanced focus on sustainable development. Numerous vendors have also launched completely recyclable paperboard containers for packing dairy products, which is acting as a major growth-inducing factor.
