How to pack olive oil bottles – The Packaging Doctor

By Carl Board • Thursday 26th July 2018

Here at Kite, we understand that packaging dilemmas come in all shapes and sizes and the packing area in particular often proves challenging in terms of efficiency. That is why we make sure we offer a wide range of packing solutions that give our clients a choice rather than just one option. The Packaging Doctor is on hand to assist with all your packaging protection questions.


Dear Doctor,

I own a local growing business which sells a variety of products, one of those being glass bottles of olive oil which I need to package extremely carefully to avoid breakage. I’ve currently been using your air shock bottle packs to send them to customers in, these have worked great but now due to an increase in sales I need a more efficient packing method for the larger quantity. What do you suggest I use?
Best wishes,


Hi Michael,
Thanks for reaching out to us – let’s see how the packaging doctor can help.
We understand how challenging it can be to meet an influx in demand which is why we offer a whole range of packaging solutions which allow you to find the perfect packing method for you.
We suggest you try using some more traditional boxes like our double wall cardboard boxes. These have a heavy duty, double layered corrugated cardboard composition which is specifically designed to offer superior strength and reliability. These teamed with the right internal protection will safeguard your olive oil bottles with the care and cushioning that they need.
Regarding the inner packaging protection we recommend our low cost, ready to use Speedman box paper void fill system which offers the ultimate environmentally friendly cushioning for parcels. It is very easy to handle and enables efficient, consistent practice in the packing area.
Paper voidfill is an increasingly popular method of protecting goods prior to despatch and our paper dispenser box solution is favoured by a wide variety of companies where packing and despatching are critical parts of day to day operation.
We hope that this has helped with your packaging query, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need anything else.
Best wishes,
The Packaging Doctor
