Natural mineral water brand Valvert in Belgium launches its new bottle made entirely from recycled PET, a first for Nestlé in Europe. This step is intended to support Nestlé’s commitment to circular economy and to increase the rPET content in its water bottles to 35% globally by 2025.
Valvert claims to only use already used bottles to produce the new bottle. The company has been able to secure a reliable supply of the high-quality, food grade rPET. This will allow not only the launch of the 100% rPET bottle of 150cl, but also a 50% rPET bottle of 50cl at the same time. The goal is to have the 50cl bottle also made entirely of rPET by the end of 2019.
