Q: Is your cherry juice bottled in glass bottles?
A: Yes, we have never packed out product in plastic bottles. The reason is food that is packaged in plastic bottles experiences something called “plastic leaching”.

This occurs when the food that is packaged in plastic bottles actually starts to pull, or leach, plastic molecules from the bottle back into the food. This can affect the taste, quality, etc. of the finished product. Since we only bottle in glass bottles you don’t have to work about any sort of plastic leaching with our products.
