Coca-Cola has selected rigid packaging provider Ardagh Group to manufacture a special limited edition 25cl aluminium bottle.

Ardagh has produced new aluminium bottles for Coca-Cola at its specialist plant in Beaurepaire, France. Besides offering infinite design opportunities, metal packaging is 100% recyclable and offers protective qualities.

The new aluminium bottles with various designs have been manufactured using Ardagh's high-definition, high-resolution printing.

Ardagh Group metal division chief commercial officer Woep Möller said: "We have been associated with some memorable limited edition Coca-Cola bottles over the past few years."

Ardagh had initally supplied the first aluminium contour bottle, known as Magnificent 5 (M5), to Coca Cola in 2006.

This comes after Coca-Cola approved the original contour shape, designed by the Root Glass Company of Terre Haute, Indiana, in 1915.

Ardagh Group currently operates 89 manufacturing plants in 21 countries. It employs 19,000 people and offers rigid packaging, producing metal and glass packaging solutions for food, beverage and consumer care brands worldwide.
