Hagelswag Packages Its Cocoa Nibs in Reusable Glass Chocolate Bottles

Rather than packaging its cacao nibs in a plastic pouch or a box, Hagelswag makes use of a reusable plastic-free chocolate bottle instead.

The glass bottle system allows the product to be seen from the outside, while also providing space for branding and batch numbers to be handwritten on the side. The result is a packaging solution that's ecologically responsible, as well as rustic and artisan-inspired in style. In order to keep the cacao nibs in place for transportation and storage purposes, a cork closure is secured to the bottle with a string.

Like this project, many manufacturers are switching from plastic packaging for single-serve products like yogurt to glass pots that can be reused or repurposed after the contents have been emptied.
