Answer
In my opinion aseptic packaging like tetra pack or combiblock is cheaper and easier to produce. No label application is required the cartons are preprinted.

The Pet packaging requires more involved processing and packaging and is complex to run in a manufacturing facility.

The product quality is the same for each.

Also it also depend what is more acceptable in the market you are in.

Thanks

Best regards
