Colored bottles are a popular way to add function and beauty to bottling, and each color has a unique purpose. Orange, white, and black plastic bottles are popular in the medicinal packaging industry to keep light from affecting the potency of medication. Blue, amber, and green glass bottles are traditionally used to bottle beer and spirits to preserve taste and filter out harmful UV rays.

Benefits of Colored Glass Bottles for Food

Edible products such as syrup, various cooking oils, and sauces also benefit when packaged in colored glass bottles. Olive oil, fruit juices, and savory items like balsamic or red wine vinegar store well in amber bottles as they help preserve taste. Smaller square colored glass bottles in amber or clear are also used for soy, steak, or hot sauces. Glass not only preserves taste, it keeps food free of chemical leaching.

Traditional Colored Wine Bottles

Colored wine bottles with high-quality corks and stoppers protect contents from air that could affect flavor and bouquet. Major wineries prefer to use green or blue wine bottles for their natural light-filtering and temperature-control properties. Traditionally, the bottles have long necks and varied shoulder shapes, base sizes, and punt depths.

Bottling With Colored Plastic

Colored plastic bottles are recyclable, pliable, available in several colors, and provide UV filtering. While water, soda, liquor, and juice bottling companies still use glass bottles, many have switched to aluminum cans or colored bottles. Used for packaging solid and liquid medications, colored plastic bottles are often combined with manufactured child-resistant caps.
