Nampak Plastics looks to lightweight the milk industry


Nampak Plastics, a UK producer of plastic milk bottles, says it has created the world's lightest four-pint high density polyethylene (HDPE) bottle.

The bottle, which comes in a 32g four-pint, represents a 20% material savings on the standard four-pint version found in most supermarkets today, which weigh about 40g, according to Nampak. This lightweight bottle is currently undergoing trials with a number of Nampak's customers.

This recent advancement is the latest incarnation of Nampak's Infini bottle, which was officially launched in 2012 after four years of collaborative efforts from the Nampak team and following extensive trials, tests and market research. The Infini bottle claimed a World Star prize earlier this year and the Best Dairy Packaging Innovation at the Global Dairy Congress in 2012.
