Light weight, high quality bottles
Over the past year we have been working closely with our suppliers on the development of new lightweight products and we're now delighted to announce the launch of our two new lightweight 500ml beer bottles. Produced in the UK these bottles are 15% lighter than traditional bottles and weigh in at only 300 grams. A lighter weight gives the benefit of an environmentally friendly product in terms of raw material use, and lower delivery costs, while at the same time maintaining the quality of the bottle.
At present they are amongst the lightest available to the trade and over the coming months the range will be extended to include both a 330ml and 750ml variant.
Although both our 500ml bottles weigh only 300 grams, one has a diameter of 69mm while the other remains at the traditional 73mm. The rationale behind these two diameters is firstly, on the 69mm the desire by the high street multiples to maximise their shelf facings and secondly, the 73mm is a more traditional style which can be accommodated on many filling lines without the necessity for changing parts. We intend to have sufficient stock available to meet the forecast demand. Initially this will be in Amber and Flint however, and there will be the facility to produce in Green if there is sufficient demand.
