Tecnocap win Metal Pack of the Year
Tecnocap’s Re:Water bottle, the world’s first made from 100% recycled aluminium, was named the ‘Metal Pack of the Year’ at the UK Packaging Awards.
The UK Packaging Awards is among the sector’s most prestigious prizes in Europe and worldwide, judged by a panel of the most influential packaging buyers and specifiers.
Experts from many of the biggest household names, including Coca-Cola, Heineken, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, and Nestlé, assessed this year’s entries.
The ‘Metal Pack of the Year’ category is sponsored by the Metal Packaging Manufacturers Association, the lead voice of the UK metal packaging industry with direct links into a European market employing 70,000 people across 200 companies producing more than 70 billion containers each year.
UK spring water brand Re:Water, which comes in reusable bottles manufactured in Italy by Tecnocap and made from 100% recycled aluminium, achieved a high profile when it was served to global leaders at the COP26 Conference – UN Climate Change in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021.
Last Friday, the aluminium bottle obtained unanimous recognition as the ‘Metal Pack of the Year’ for its stylish impact on the shelf and its special Sustainability credentials.
The judges said: “A fabulous design, lightweight sustainable solution moving away from other less sustainable packaging formats. Great shelf appeal and great consumer appeal.”
