Bag-In-Box Packaging

Show off your beverage innovatively with bag-in-box packaging! Great Northern Packaging uses a laminated paperboard with structural integrity to hold up through every production stage and our printing process also allows for multilevel embossing, ultraviolet (UV) coatings, metallic inks and more. Other advantages include:


  • Strong enough to be palletized without additional packaging
  • Less bulge leads to easier stacking and cleaner shelf presence
  • Withstands the rigors of filling and shipping


  • Smaller carbon footprint than typical sheet-fed operations
  • Less energy is used to produce packaging than glass bottles
  • Packaged flat to save storage and shipping space

Why Choose Bag-In-Box Packaging?

Bag-in-box packaging offers many benefits over other package types:

  • Extended shelf life: The carton keeps out light, and the bag inside contracts to keep out oxygen.
  • Strength: You can stack these cartons without any additional packaging. They also hold up to jostling during shipping.
  • Sustainability: Bag-in-box packaging requires less energy to produce than glass bottles, and it saves on shipping space because it ships flat.
  • Easy dispensing: Opening features on the carton allow users to push the spout through and pour the beverage easily.
  • No broken glass: With bag-in-box packaging, you don’t have to worry about shattered bottles and lost profits.
  • Custom display: Our in-house design team can work with you to create a design that highlights promotions and seasonal products. Plus, you have more space to display your brand on a carton than on a bottle.
