Blue Waters bottles are everywhere in the south-eastern English-speaking Caribbean.
With their wide packaging range, Blue Waters took the sleepy Trinidad water market by storm in May 1999. Besides the 0.4l, 0.65l and 1.5l typical consumer bottle sizes, Blue Water also offers bigger 6l and 8l containers.
Confident of its products and global presence, Blue Waters decided to partner with and source closures from BERICAP in 1999.
As the market in general moved towards the PCO 1881 neck, Blue Waters followed this trend in 2011 and converted to the light-weight neck, again using closures from BERICAP. For bottles bigger than 0.65l, Blue Waters use the DoubleSeal SuperShorty, saving up to 40% in weight compared to the previous closure types and necks.
BERICAP’s new 28mm push-pull closure for PCO 1881 allows for lighter-weight, smaller packages for on-the-go, whilst still providing consumer convenience and safety.
For their 6l and 8l containers, Blue Waters is using BERICAP’s SK 38/15 S 3T MO closure for safe sealing, whilst still providing consumer friendly opening closures.
Lately, Blue Waters became Pepsi co-packer for Trinidad and Barbados, in association with Cabcorp, the anchor Pepsi bottler in Central America, Ecuador, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. Blue Waters selected BERICAP DoubleSeal SuperShorty CSD closures for its carbonated beverage range after a very successful test at a Pepsi co-appointed independent lab in Mexico.
Working with BERICAP for more than a decade, Blue Waters always maintained its edge in packaging innovation, under the advice of BERICAP. The new light-weight closures from BERICAP support Blue Waters’ efforts to produce on a reduced cost base at their 20,000mSQ bottling plant in Trinidad.
BERICAP frequently delivers closures to Trinidad, a country of 1.5 million inhabitants with the highest income per capita in Central America and the Caribbean.
