The newly added HDPE bottles are fully approved by the FDA for direct product contact and can be color matched to meet customer specifications. The range of bottles containing PCR can be paired with a 100% PCR polypropylene stand-up cap to deliver up to a 100% PCR package. Other closures options are available. “We have managed to overcome the innate challenges of 100% PCR to create a bottles that meets all the quality, performance, and processing standards of our non-PCR bottles,” says Mark Deutsch, Director of Product Development. Decorating options include silk screen, hot stamping, and pressure sensitive labeling.
