Jugs with built-in handles provide large-capacity packaging that is practical and easy to handle. Some gallon jugs feature a helpful grab-and-go handle on the side that is long and thin, while others, such as growlers, have finger loops for easy carrying. Wholesale jugs are made from either glass or various plastics and are available in colors like clear, white, or amber. They can be used to store a variety of products, including liquids such as beverages, cleaners, or oils.
Benefits of Using Plastic Jugs
Plastic is a cost-effective, lightweight material that is easy to stack for storage or transport. Many plastic containers are made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is strong and durable. It's also impact-resistant, making plastic jugs easy to ship without incurring damage. Plastic is a recyclable material that protects products from outside contaminants.
Benefits of Using Glass Jugs
Due to its nonporous nature, glass prevents pollutants from reaching your products. It maintains its shape and strength over time, even after being reused or recycled, making glass jugs a durable packaging option. Glass does not form chemical reactions and is therefore good for storing beverages or other consumable items.
Using Jugs to Store Beverages
With their large capacity, jugs with lids are a popular way to package beverages such as milk, juice, and beer. Growlers are traditionally used to store beer and are usually either clear, offering some transparency to better see content levels, or amber to prevent ultraviolet radiation from altering product flavor. Growlers can be fitted with bale wire closures or bar top corks that protect products from air exposure. Gallon-sized milk and juice jugs can be paired with tamper-evident caps that reinforce product integrity.
