BENEFIT FROM LIGHTWEIGHT PACKAGING AND SIGNIFICANT REDUCTIONS IN CONSUMPTION DURING WATER BOTTLE PRODUCTION
Water is life and it's needed all around the world. In 2011, it passed carbonated soft drinks as the most popular beverage worldwide, and it is expected to grow by upwards of 5% in the years to come. However, in today's price-conscious water market, staying competitive and improving sustainability are becoming of greater importance on a global scale.
In the market today, many bottlers are operating at low margins. Approximately 70% of your total costs relate to the water bottle itself with distribution and logistics at 20% and production at 10%. Material and energy prices are also rising at an incredible rate, making it ever important to cut costs through resource optimisation.
As the world's carbon emissions from coal, oil and gas combustion are estimated to escalate by around 15% and the average global temperature is expected to rise, climate change is increasingly a topic on consumers' minds. In fact, many consumers are now willing to pay a premium for organic, locally sourced, fair trade, low-carbon footprint and eco-packaged products. They also see recycling as a key to a greener world.
To exploit your needs for sustainability and cost-efficiency in all aspects of the value chain - from sourcing and production to transportation - you require packaging solutions that improve resource use (energy, water, chemicals and PET resin) as well as minimise your environmental footprint in terms of carbon and waste emissions. We can give your water line the best of both through lightweighting application and ecological, cost-saving equipment.
