Details

The milk bag system offers a 75% less packaging weight advantage over the traditional plastic milk bottle –the normal way that supermarket milk is sold. 
Previously the main barrier to the adoption of pouches was the means of opening and pouring them. The JUGIT™ format was therefore especially developed to deal with this issue. Once placed into the JUGIT™, a spike perforates the bag so it is ready to pour. The top of the lid flips open to provide a handy, reclosable pouring spout.
 
Developed by Dairy Crest in association with the Sainsbury’s supermarket chain, JUGIT offers consumers a pouch-based format that uses substantially less packaging material than conventional plastic milk containers, allied to the convenience of an easy-to-pour, reusable jug manufactured by RPC Market Rasen
