Europe knows about honey in PET

While injection stretch/blow molding of PET bottles for honey is something of a novelty in the U.S. European blow molder PET-Power (Etten-Leur Holland) has been producing such containers for about five years. A sampling of its output is shown here.

PET-Power uses reheat-and-blow equipment and relies on Eastapak® PET resin from Eastman Chemical (Kingsport TN). According to Kees Killestijn managing director at PET-Power the material is clear lightweight and easy to process. It also produces a bottle with especially high gloss says Killestijn which makes the gold-colored honey all the more appealing on the shelf.
