Worldwide confidence in PET

Since the first PET bottle was developed in the 1970s, the popularity of PET has grown around the world. Consumers demanded a safe, light and unbreakable alternative to the glass bottle. That's why brands continue to switch to PET making it the preferred material for packaging foods and beverages.

  • Does notcontain Bisphenol A (BPA), phthalates or DEHA, which misleading unscientific articles have suggested
  • Biologically inert if ingested

  • PET brings many advantages  

    Supermarket_western_womanPET has a well-proven safety profile, is resistant to attack by micro-organisms and is fully recyclable. Also, unlike glass and other traditional packaging materials, PET is extremely lightweight, energy-efficient to transport, easy to carry for on-the-go activities, resealable and virtually unbreakable.

  • The sustainable packaging material  

    Lightweight and shatterproof, PET reduces transport costs, carbon footprint and wastage caused by breakages. Compared with glass bottles, a truckload can contain up to one third more PET bottles because they are light and can utilise the full space of the truck without overloading[1] 


    reducing PET weight

     

    The weight of PET bottles has significantly reduced in the past several decades due to technology developments. For example the weight of a 0.5 litre PET bottle for still water has reduced by 71.6% between 1985 and 2014. In average, a PET bottle weights around 10 times less than a glass bottle.

  • Renewable and fully recyclable  

    Value chain

    India faces many challenges taking a new product from design, to production, then to reach the consumer.  However we see your supply chain as a continuous opportunity to create value. We begin by helping you design uniquely striking packages using less PET and thinner labels. We then enable efficient yet flexible production while minimising consumption. These durable and light, high-quality packages are both able to withstand the harsh conditions of transportation using less fuel, and also look great at the point of sale. They offer a drinking experience in line with consumer expectations, leading to increased sales and repeat purchases, and can be recycled to be used again and again.
