Nampak moves further ahead with Infini

Nampak Plastics is claiming a new record for its Infini bottle: the world’s lightest four-pint high density polyethylene (HDPE) container.

The new bottle, currently undergoing trials with customers, weighs 32g, significantly lighter that the standard 40g four-pint version and 2g off the previous Infini model.

Nampak estimates that if it moved its entire annual output of two billion bottles to the lighter Infini, 15,000 tonnes of resin would be saved each year.

If it was to become the bottle of choice, the overall amount of resin used in UK milk packaging would be cut by 30,000 tonnes – a 25% saving.

Nampak MD Eric Collins said: “Since its launch in 2012, Infini has been responsible for a paradigm shift in milk packaging, using considerably less material and more recycled plastic than has ever been achieved before.

“Feedback on Infini from milk processors and retailers has been extremely positive – and we know from extensive research that consumers also prefer the design to the standard bottle. With HDPE lightweight savings of 20% on the industry’s current bottle, it’s greener and more affordable, and performs extremely well in all aspects of the dairy supply chain.”

The bottle was judged the best dairy packaging Innovation at the Global Dairy Congress in 2012.
