In February 2007, San Antonio Farms, San Antonio, TX, began club-store marketing of double-packs of salsas in 48-oz-volume, six-layer PP/EVOH barrier jugs with .015” wall thickness and 82-g empty-bottle weight. Shelf life of the bottled salsa is 12 months. Average retail price of the salsa twin-packs is between $5.00 and $6.00.
Nature’s Way Purewater fills 180 1-gal containers/min and packs them into 3-count cases at a rate of 60 cases/min. New $4 million, 2000’-long line includes a case packer that accepts 2.5-gal containers, too. See in-plant video
