PACK EXPO International 2018 served as the launching pad for Dromo, a new PET bottle system designed specifically for liquid or semi-viscous products sold through e-commerce. The first-of-its-kind system is ideal for personal care, household chemicals, foodand a wide range of other CPG products, according to PTI, the manufacturer of Dromo.
PTI developed the Dromo bottle and dispensing system to support growing e-commerce product demands, survive the distribution channel with limited secondary packaging and reduce dependence on raw materials.
Dromobottles have also passed burst tests of up to 173 psi and drop tests (both base and sides) of 6 feet to ensure that they will be able to handle the rigors of ecommerce distribution.
“Consumers have never been more vocal about reducing plastic packaging consumption. Along with this has come the significant shift in buying habits, moving away from retail stores toward ecommerce,” says Thierry Fabozzi, president of PTI. “Different times call for different packaging solutions, and that’s what this innovation represents.”
