Rigid packaging supplier Berlin Packaging is set to introduce moulded fibre bottles suitable for liquid and dry products.

The eco.bottle, a product of Ecological Brands, uses up to 70% less plastic than traditional plastic bottles, with a moulded fibre shell that is 100% recyclable and compostable.

The line is available in a 50oz size and a 32oz size with a detergent-style dosing cap or twist cap and a 64oz size with a 38mm spout suited for orange juice and dairy products.

The bottle can be used for a wide range of consumer products ranging from pourable goods to beverages, personal care products and even paints and stains.

The new line will be available from January 2012 and can be supplied fully assembled, requiring minimal filling line modification and can also be supplied unassembled to the filler.
