UK-based plastic milk bottles manufacturer Nampak Plastics has completed trials, testing and supply of its new Infini plastic milk bottles in sizes of one pint, one liter and two pint.
The new bottles are made with 15% recycled high density polyethylene (rHDPE).
Nampak is launching the new bottles in summer 2013 and has further plans to increase this up to 30% by 2014.
The launch of new bottles will result in a combined material saving of 4,500t, and a combined carbon saving of 12,000t annually.
Nampak Plastics managing director Eric Collins said, "We are thrilled with these developments. Infini has continuously been responsible for a paradigm shift in milk packaging, using considerably less virgin material and increasing quantities of recycled plastic."
According to Nampak, more than 180 million Infini bottles were sold through retailers including Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose, till date.
