The packaging process is described as a sequence of operations from the purchase order to shipment of the product to the customer. The characteristics and performance of glass, metal and plastic containers in the packaging of extra-virgin olive oil are presented and compared in terms of cost, protection from light and oxygen, possibility of recycling and reuse, mechanical resistance and inertness. Various filling and closing techniques are described. Finally, the limitations and possibilities of labelling are discussed.
