Coca-Cola awarded for PlantBottle packaging
ATLANTA Coca-Cola was saluted for its recyclable, PET plastic packaging at the 22nd annual DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation.
Coca-Cola’s PlantBottle packaging — which was launched in December 2009 — earned a gold award for demonstrating breakthrough packaging innovation, Coca-Cola said. The DuPont Award is the packaging industry’s longest running, independently judged global award program. Made of up to 30% plant-based material, PlantBottle packaging is made from renewable sources that is 100% recyclable, like traditional PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic. PlantBottle packaging can be recycled in the existing commercial recycling infrastructure, Coca-Cola said.
“Our journey has only just begun, but the initial success we have seen in the marketplace along with highly credible recognition like this from DuPont show that we are making progress and delivering packaging innovation in response to consumers, customers and our franchise insights and business needs,” said Scott Vitters, PlantBottle business lead at Coca-Cola.
