Leading beverage company Frucor Suntory has taken another significant step in its commitment to sustainable production with the introduction of 750ml glass bottles for its NZ Natural Still and Sparkling water.

In store early September, the sustainable and 100 percent recyclable packaging is the latest in Frucor Suntory's commitment to plastic reduction.

Senior brand manager, hydration at Frucor Suntory, Katherine Minchin said bottled water is the world's most popular purchased beverage, and it is continuing to grow on a global scale. "With sustainability and 'New Zealand-made' key shopper drivers in NZ, the introduction of glass bottles for NZ Natural is one that fits well with the brand's provenance," said Minchin. "It's exciting to have a stylish glass offering families can enjoy at the dinner table that is also better for the environment."

NZ Natural still and sparkling artesian spring water is sourced from pristine Southern Alps, and bottled at source in New Zealand-made glass. Every bottle is 100 percent recyclable and contains up to 55 percent post-consumer recycled glass.
