The Sustainable Bottling Co. opens aluminium bottling facility
The Sustainable Bottling Company is the company behind soft drink disruptor Gunna drinks. The new facility will be the first in Europe to package soft drinks in aluminium bottles, according to them.
Based in Leicester, the factory is on a 8,000 square feet site funded by Gunna’s current investors.
As well as packing Gunna’s drinks into 470ml aluminium bottles, the facility will offer white label aluminium bottling to other beverage brands in a range of sizes including 330ml and 750ml.
Gunna Drinks founder Melvin Jay said: “We believe aluminium bottles are the future, adding it is incredibly exciting to be launching The Sustainable Bottling Co and be able to offer the industry access to significantly more planet-friendly bottling.”
He added, “There are far-reaching needs across the FMCG industry for aluminium bottling, and we can’t wait to start fulfilling these and helping to reduce the drinks sector’s reliance on harmful single-use plastic bottles.”
The founder is also behind a number of campaigns and pledges to encourage soft drink manufacturers to swap to eco friendly cans and bottles.
