History of yogurt packaging in China

The past decade has been a decade of rapid development of the Chinese dairy market. From homogenized milk to fresh yogurt, China’s fresh milk market has gradually entered a relatively concentrated state after brand integration. In various supermarkets, Mengniu and Yili’s yogurt dominate.

From a global perspective, yoghurt is also considered to be a relatively small milk variety in commercialization. For our country, yogurt was just used as the embellishment product of various local dairy companies more than ten years ago. The yogurt of the 1980s was sold in milk bottles, and the yogurt in Beijing’s porcelain jars almost became the spokesperson of the yogurt of that era.

At present, the common packaging forms of yogurt on the market are mainly glass and ceramic jar packaging, plastic packaging, Ecolean packaging, composite packaging and metal packaging. Nowadays, yogurt packaging can provide different packaging forms to meet the needs of different groups of people, and achieve personalized design.

Plastic-bottled yogurt is generally made of HDPE and PET materials. Because of its excellent mechanical properties, impact resistance and non-fragility, it is widely used in yogurt products with low capacity, such as recyclability and low cost.

3. Yogurt in composite packaging.
