Italian edible oil company Salov has introduced its first rPET bottle for the Sagra brand.
The company will use the new packaging for 1-litre bottles of seed oils, including maize, peanut, sunflower, high-oleic, frying, and grape seed oil.
The packaging, made from 50% recycled plastic sourced from other bottles, offers the same quality and safety as traditional bottles.
The 1-litre range is just the first step and will be followed by the 1.5- and 2-litre formats.
Gruppo Salov's commitment to promoting sustainable consumption habits is not limited to introducing rPET bottles but extends to the entire packaging.
The sleeve covering the bottle, essential for protecting the product from light, is made from an innovative recycled plastic material.
In addition, the new packaging that replaces the plastic protective film uses 100% recycled cardboard.
These solutions will reduce the introduction of new plastic into the environment and the CO2 emissions of the company.
