A key tenet of our packaging transformation plan is to provide consumers and customers with solutions beyond the bottle when they are on the go, at work, and in bars and food outlets. Developing solutions that offer sustainable hydration to consumers while reducing plastic remains key to transforming our portfolio.
This year, we introduced the Aqua Libra Co Flavour Tap. Ideal for workplaces, hospitality and retail – the sleek tap uses state-of-the-art technology to dispense still, sparkling and flavoured water with zero calories and reduces packaging waste by 99%. Each tap comes with technology that learns from consumers in real time and adjusts the flavours offered to meet their palate.
Over the year, we’ve continued to drive installations of our London Essence Freshly Infused founts in hospitality venues across Great Britain – with over 1,000 taps now in place. As we look to increase the availability of Britvic products on dispense, we’re trialling our Britvic Mixers range in a new dispense solution.
Transforming hydration at home, our French syrup brand, Teisseire, has added a new range to its portfolio in Belgium, exclusively for soda machines. With each 350ml bottle flavouring up to seven litres of sparkling water, the new range reduces the water and packaging transported on our roads – helping lower our carbon footprint. Water fountain company, Behring, is also trialling the use of Teisseire fruit concentrate in its water fountains.
