The new PET bottle from Sidel is designed to offer an increased competitive advantage for liquid dairy manufacturers.
This mini-size has been designed for products such as drinking and probiotic yoghurts with capacities between 65ml to 150ml and is ideally suited for ambient and cold chain processes. The bottle would also suit applications within the juice, nectar, soft drinks, isotonic and tea sectors.
“This new format has been launched to support the liquid dairy product industry where the use of PET packaging has increasingly become an attractive alternative,” comments Laurent Naveau, Packaging Innovator Leader at Sidel. “Part of Sidel’s continuous packaging optimisation programme, this bottle is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and costs while also offering new marketing opportunities and high production performance for manufacturers.”
With Sidel’s new ultra-light bottle, manufacturers can benefit from PET’s heightened sustainability credentials. Not only is it the most affordable plastic on the market, but it is also the only food-grade bottle-to-bottle recycled plastic.
By switching to PET, manufacturers can achieve up to a 40 per cent cost reduction when moving from polystyrene to PET and a 20 per cent reduction from HDPE (high-density polyethene).
