How to pack olive oil

The general guidelines for packing olive oil are similar to those for shipping wine. Follow these simple steps:

  • Choose the bottle that can withstand low and high temperatures.
  • Surround it by absorbent pouches.
  • Secure the bottle with bubble wrap.
  • Put it in a plastic bag.
  • Put the bottle into a small carton box.
  • Use cushioning materials to fill empty spaces inside the box.
  • Place the smaller box into a slightly bigger one.
  • Fill the bigger box with cushioning materials.
  • Seal the box.
  • You can add warning labels saying “Fragile” or “Handle with care”.
  • Prepare the pallet for large olive oil shipments. Stack the boxes one onto another.
  • Fix them with a packaging rope and wrap them in plastic foil to make sure they cannot move on the pallet.

Yes.
