Nestlé Waters unveil the UK’s lightest weight water bottles

January 12, 2012

Nestlé Waters UK recently announced an investment of over £35 million in a new state of the art bottling  and warehousing facility in Buxton . Opening in Spring of 2012, the factory  will make lightweight bottles of Buxton Natural Mineral Water and Nestlé Pure Life, using an average of 25% less PET plastic across all still water formats.

The new lightweight bottles will be launched across  Buxton Natural Mineral Water (25cl, 50cl, 75cl and 1litre) and Nestlé Pure Life (33cl and 50cl) formats. The environmental credentials of the new bottles will be exposed on the refreshed packaging, highlighting the changes to consumers. 

The new lighter bottles  have a shorter neck and a sturdy, ergonomical shape that requires less plastic and fits comfortably the hand.  The bottles,  made with  reduced PET plastic, remain  completely recyclable.

Nestlé Waters UK Country  Manager, Paolo Sangiorgi, stated: “We are delighted to be unveiling the lightest weight water bottles produced in the UK. This significant investment clearly demonstrates our commitment to our market-leading portfolio of bottled water and to ensuring the category remains relevant and exciting for our customers and consumers.”

Nestlé Waters UK bottle innovation does not stop here. The company will  launch a new sports cap that includes a tamper evident seal which stays within the lid when opened. The new sports cap will be available on the Buxton Natural Mineral Water 25cl, 75cl and 1 litre formats, as well as the Nestlé Pure Life 33cl formats.
