Lewis Road Creamery’s 100 percent recyclable (rPET) milk bottle has won a global packaging accolade at the 2020 WorldStar Packaging Awards.

The Awards is run by the World Packaging Organisation to recognise companies for packaging innovation across six categories including food, beverage, labelling & decoration, health & personal care, household and packaging materials & components.

Lewis Road, in partnership with its rPET bottle producer PACT Group, took out top honours in the international beverage category off the back of winning gold in the Australasian Packaging and Innovation Awards for the same category in May this year.

The award reflects the innovation in the category and the positive impact switching to rPET bottles has had on the environment, saving approximately 310 tonnes of new plastic being created each year.

Since October this year, Lewis Road’s entire white milk, flavoured milk and cream range has been bottled in the award-winning packaging which is made entirely from recycled plastic.  The bottles are 100 percent recyclable and accepted by every council recycling collection nationwide.

Lewis Road’s rPET bottle is also a contender in the 2020 WorldStar Packaging Awards for sustainability, with the winners of this award being announced later this month.
