Berry, Coca-Cola collaborate to implement tethered PET caps in EU markets

EVANSVILLE, IN, January 26, 2023-

After winning a prestigious sustainability award at PACK EXPO International last month for this circular solution, Berry Global Group, Inc. (NYSE: BERY) is the first plastic packaging manufacturer in Europe to supply The Coca-Cola Company with a lightweight, tethered closure for its carbonated soft drinks in PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles. Bolstered by the European Union (EU) Single-Use Plastics Directive, Berry’s new tethered closure for Coca-Cola is designed to remain intact with the bottle – making it less likely to be littered and more likely to be recycled.

Over 400 million closures have been successfully applied to date on Coca-Cola bottling lines in Germany, Spain, and the UK, with the rollout to continue to the company’s other European plants.
