Amcor designs lightest 900-ml PET bottle
Amcor has adapted its leading-edge engineering and design technology to develop the lightest 900-ml polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottle for edible oil in Brazil. The custom- designed container for agribusiness and food producer Bunge, in São Paulo, is 22% lighter than competitive bottles while providing greater productivity and increased sustainability benefits. The new bottle for Bunge’s Oleo de soja Soya brand represents Amcor’s entry into the edible oil market in Brazil. Amcor responded to Bunge’s industry-wide challenge to suppliers, developing a 14g container which weighs four grams less than standard bottles.
Amcor modern PET bottle concepts
New concepts in PET bottles are the next big thing in wine and Amcor is unveiling its most recent designs at the Unified Wine and Grape Symposium, February 4-6 at Cal Expo in Sacramento, Calif. In addition to custom designs, Amcor is announcing its collaboration with British multi award-winning start-up Garçon Wines to make their signature and more sustainable flat wine bottles available to the U.S. market. Amcor’s polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and Garçon Wines’ flat wine bottles will be on display at booth A111.
