Firm delivers lightest ever milk bottles
NAMPAK Plastics, the Stonehouse-based producer of plastic milk bottles, says it has created the world's lightest ever four-pint, high density polyethylene bottle.
Weighing in at just 32g, the bottle – which is currently undergoing trials with a number of Nampak's customers – represents a 20% material saving on the standard four-pint version.
The breakthrough is the latest incarnation of Nampak's multi-award-winning Infini bottle, which claimed a coveted World Star prize earlier this year and the Best Dairy Packaging Innovation at the Global Dairy Congress in 2012.
The Infini bottle, which is stocked in a number of major retailers including Marks & Spencer, Morrisons and Sainsbury's, is already the lightest and strongest bottle on the market.

If the company was to move its entire annual output of two billion bottles to the new lighter Infini 15,000 tonnes of resin would be saved each year. And if the lighter Infini was to become the bottle of choice, it would reduce the overall amount of resin used in UK milk packaging by 30,000 tonnes – a 25% saving.
Eric Collins, managing director of Nampak Plastics, said: "Feedback on Infini from milk processors and retailers has been extremely positive – and we know from extensive research that consumers prefer the design to the standard bottle.
"We believe we've reached a new pinnacle with the creation of a 32g four-pint Infini bottle."
