We would love to make our cartons easier to open. However, due to the limited packaging technology currently available, in order for us to keep on producing shelf-stable bone broth that retains all its health benefits, we cannot change the carton type at all, not even the size.
There is “method in our madness,” our Tetra Pak carton ensures we are able to ship you the healthiest, most environmentally friendly bone broth product available. We even decided against adding a plastic pour onto the carton in order to keep the environmental footprint as small as possible. You see, we really did try to think of everything.
To make it easier to open, we recommend using scissors to cut along the top. Then, once opened, simply store it in a mason jar. (This is a handy hint we got from our customers. It helps to prevent spilling and they find it easier to store once opened.) Remember if you are not going to use it immediately or within seven days, we recommend that you freeze it. Here is a great recipe from The Kettle & Fire Blog on how to make Bone Broth Ice Cubes.
