    New PET bottle is flavour of the month

    • RPC Promens

    RPC Promens Consumer Innocan is launching a 750ml barrier PET bottle for flavoured syrups for cold drinks. The new bottle provides a more cost-effective, convenient and flexible pack format compared to the metal can which has traditionally been used for these products.

    For the consumer, the PET bottle's lighter weight ensures ease of handling. For manufacturers, the bottles can be sleeved with individual branding and graphics as required, simplifying logistics and avoiding delays or unwanted stock as there is no need to buy-in and store pre-printed metal cans.

    The curved design of the PET bottle echoes the design of the metal can to help maintain brand familiarity and allows the bottles to be filled on existing lines and use the same cap.

    The multilayer construction incorporates a layer of oxygen scavenger (active barrier) and Polyamide (passive barrier), which provide an effective barrier against oxidation to prolong the shelf life of the syrups. In addition, this helps to maintain the flavour of the syrups in the bottle for longer.
