Suntory To Install High-Speed Bottling Technology At U.K. Factory

January 15, 2019: 12:00 AM EST
Fulfilling a pledge to limit its water consumption in line with planetary boundaries – and meet a 2020 target of reducing its overall water footprint by 15 percent – Lucozade Ribena Suntory (LRS) announced it is investing $17 million in new high-speed bottling technology for its Gloucestershire (U.K.) soft drink factory. The innovative technology could reduce the factory's overall water footprint by 4.4 percent. The faster bottle filling devices will reduce the amount of water required to produce each soft drink bottle by 40 percent, delivering a 40 percent reduction in the amount of energy used during the manufacturing process at the same time. It will be installed in the spring and come online before the end of 2019, LRS announced. The technology purchase is supported by a $17 million grant from Suntory headquarters in Tokyo.
