On-The-Go Ribena And Lucozade 500ml Bottles To Be Made From 100 Percent rPET By End Of 2022

May 30, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Suntory Beverage and Food GB&I has promised that all its 500ml on-the-go bottles will be made from 100 percent recycled PET by the end of this year. Brands include Lucozade Sport, Lucozade Energy, Orangina and Ribena. This is a challenge, not least because the UK today only produces around 1.3 million tonnes of food-grade rPET annually, and rPET currently costs almost 40 percent more than virgin PET in Europe. In fact, some of the product lines are already 100 percent rPET, but it needs more rPET to transition Lucozade Energy. Liz Nieboer, head of sustainability, said that although reaching the milestone is “a cause for celebration, much still needs to be done in terms of recycling infrastructure. There has been a historic under investment in the UK’s recycling and collection infrastructures, meaning less than a third of bottles are turned back into bottles.”
