WorldStar-dust settles on ANZ packaging innovators

Coca-Cola Europacific Partners (CCEP)  won the pinnacle Gold for its work in producing Australia’s first 100 per cent recycled PET (rPET) bottle for carbonated beverages – a world-first in the Coca-Cola bottler system to make the change at scale.

The increase in the use of rPET reduces the amount of new plastic resin used by the company by an estimated 10,000 tonnes per year in Australia.

It is not clear though if they are using recycled content from Australia or are importing the recycled resin.
