Nampak has reached its billionth sale

Nampak Plastics, the UK’s leading producer of plastic milk bottles, has today announced that sales of its multi-award-winning Infini bottle have reached one billion.

 

This significant achievement has been reached in just over two years, with Infini flying off the shelves of several major retailers such as Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose.

 

Infini is, currently, the lightest and strongest bottle on the British market. The increasing demand for more sustainable and cost effective products in the market means the designers and engineers at Nampak continue to strive to be innovative with their design. To date, Infini has saved 34,000 tonnes of carbon and 16,000 tonnes of material per year since launching in 2012.

 

Eric Collins, Managing Director of Nampak Plastics, commented: "We are thrilled about the announcement of our billionth Infini bottle sold. It’s great to see the efforts of the whole team at Nampak highlighted by customer sales. It is clear that the Infini bottle is an innovative, sustainable and cost effective product – which, evidently, consumers enjoy."

 

Kevin Vyse, Primary Foods Packaging Technologist and Innovation Lead at Marks & Spencer also commented "Having witnessed Nampak continue to push the barriers around performance and sustainability over the last few years, it is great to hear of the announcement of the billionth Infini bottle sold. I’m looking forward to further hearing about the advances Nampak has planned for developing this groundbreaking product."

 

Nampak has secured a myriad of prestigious awards since the launch, including the DuPont Award for Packaging Innovation, Sir Peter Parker Award for sustainable business leadership and, most recently, The Cream Award’s prize Judges’ Award for Packaging Innovation.
