Coca-Cola Label-Free PET Bottle
Coca-Cola Tokyo Research & Development Company, Limited
Country: Japan
Category: Non-Alcoholic Beverages
Our iconic Coca-Cola contour bottle was launched in 1915 with the concept of being recognized even if it was shattered or touched in the dark. The new Coca-Cola contour has evolved from this tradition by adding an element of "sustainability" with label-free feature. Also, the PET bottle is made from 100% recycled PET and the weight has been reduced by 2g. The product is drinkable size of 350ml, mainly at e-commerce channel.
By removing a label, the PET bottle doesn’t require a flat area to roll a label, which gives us more bottle design flexibility. It reproduces the unique curved shape of the traditional contour bottle, and the Coca-Cola spencer logo is dynamically placed for bolder band appeal. The logo visibility is enhanced by utilizing mold technology. We achieved to develop the next-generation PET bottle having brand equity and sustainability.
