Your Bottle Needs to Change…

01.
By changing your bottle… you incorporate new ideas and technologies to meet the needs of today’s marketplace.

For decades, designers and packaging makers have been trying to figure out how to create a cost-effective, one-piece, PET bottle with a handle for mass production. After 55 years of HDPE gallon and half-gallon jugs, it’s here. Introducing BottleOne, a standard grade PET bottle created on established manufacturing platforms, and blow molded with an integrated PET handle.

02.
By changing your bottle… the delicious taste and natural nutrition profiles will be preserved.

We know that multiple variables can influence product quality, including microorganisms, light, oxygen and temperature. PET barrier solutions improve product safety with good oxygen barrier properties – 50 times higher than HDPE. The same variables that ensure your products taste better also help them retain better nutrition than regular HDPE jugs. A Virginia Tech Study proves that 2% milk, packaged in PET, retains more nutrition and tastes better than products packaged in standard HDPE bottles.

03.
By changing your bottle… there are no leaks, no mess, and no smell.

Large bottles leak everywhere – in production, in transportation, in the dairy case (stinky!), in consumers’ cars, homes and refrigerators. If you drop a bottle, the bottle may split and the lid pop off (messy!). Customers expect more, and deserve more, from a container that delivers their family’s first drink of the day.

04.
By changing your bottle… 60% – 90% of the secondary packaging is eliminated.

The packaging required to get traditional smelly, messy bottles to retail is extensive: crates, cardboard boxes, stretch wrap, etc. Purchasing, handling, warehousing and disposing of these materials is all very costly, and they take a toll on the environment.

05.
By changing your bottle… you greatly improve your logistics operation.

The extraordinary strength and durability of BottleOne containers can be leveraged to stack more, and higher. One user went from 4 layers on a pallet to 5 layers on a pallet, and stacks of 2 pallets in the same space formerly used for 1 pallet of HDPE bottles. Product storage, handling and shipment is streamlined, and efficiency is improved at every step.

06.
By changing your bottle… milk, juice, laundry detergent and other products will be e-commerce ready and drone deliverable.

There is exciting growth happening in e-commerce, and that growth is in its infancy. Participating in that growth requires a package with the toughness of BottleOne. Most HDPE bottles do not have the performance characteristics to shine in the e-commerce industry, as even a small leak will contaminate other products, other shipments, and the delivery vehicle itself.

07.
By changing your bottle… self-manufacturing becomes an option.

BottleOne technology is designed for in-line, on-demand production. BottleOne PET containers can be made faster than HDPE to match filler speeds, with significant savings from space utilization, labor content, energy, waste, and work-in-process. Most customers find a favorable payback when adapting their production line to incorporate BottleOne containers.

Manufacturing

A revolutionary blow molding process

BottleOne Technology builds on the principles of injection and reheat stretch blow molding to create PET containers of extraordinary strength and durability. Using a preform with an integrated PET handle, BottleOne technology uses established manufacturing platforms to create large capacity handled containers at industry competitive speeds and economics.

Patented Technology

The development of BottleOne, a PET bottle with an integrated PET handle, took nearly a decade. Currently, there are eight US patents which have been issued, and three US patents that are currently pending. To date, there has never been a patent claim denied. The initial patent “Manufacturing Method and Device for a Container with an Integral Handle” has been approved in 8 countries and has been allowed and is now pending in over 20 countries.

Independent top load strength tests demonstrated BottleOne was far superior (>7x) to HDPE bottles in a side-by-side evaluation of one gallon bottles. Virginia Tech has validated BottleOne to have a higher retention of riboflavin (flavor), vitamins, and dissolved oxygen (potential for longer primary shelf life).
