"We chose PetainerCooler because it is well suited to the retail environment, offering real shelf-appeal, thanks to its high quality appearance."

Prik & Tik sales director Johan Braekers said: "We chose PetainerCooler because it is well suited to the retail environment, offering real shelf-appeal, thanks to its high quality appearance.

"It was important that we found a BPA-free water cooler to ensure we are ahead of any potential legislative changes as uncertainty continues around the potential effects of BPA on health.

"PetainerCooler is the answer to this, combined with its durability, strength and compatibility with our filling partner, Evidel."

Designed to be fully recyclable, PetainerCooler is compatible with existing filling equipment and washing machines.

Compared to traditional polycarbonate coolers, Petainer’s BPA-free coolers eliminate health concerns with regards to chemical use.

The cooler is shrink-resistant to less than 40 washing cycles at 63°C / 145°F, and can survive horizontal and vertical drop tests from 1.5m.

PetainerCooler is transparent and features a blue handle with high scuff resistance.

Evidel operations manager Niko Claeys said: "Petainer’s water cooler can be filled in the same way as existing polycarbonate bottles and can be washed at a lower temperature which results in energy savings but without compromising sanitisation."

Petainer noted that BPA is a harmful synthetic compound usually found in plastic packaging made from polycarbonate.
