Alcohol manufacturer East Africa Breweries (EABL) has issued a tender for the supply of used 250ml and 350ml glass bottles, which will be used as packaging for its beverage range.

The brewer said it requires at least 15mt or 50,000 bottles a week and expects the manufacturers to use crushed glass as raw material to make new bottles, reports

The move follows the enactment of Alcoholic Drinks Control Act 2010, which bans the use of sachets and plastic bottles in the sale, packaging or distribution of alcoholic drinks.

The act, known as the Mututho law, also prohibits the sale of alcohol in bottles of less than 200ml.

EABL sells the Smirnoff, Richot and Bond 7 spirit brands in glass bottles.
