Danone converts to light weight Bericap closure in Turkey

07-Sep-2009

Danone Turkey has become the first company to use the recently launched HexaLite 29/11 SFB 3T from Bericap, having switched to the closure for its Hayat water bottle brand.

Suitable for use with the light weight neck finish 29/25, the HexaLite closure was launched in April this year and is designed to cut resin use and therefore costs.

Danone has now modified most of its existing lines producing the Hayat brand in Turkey from HEXACAP 30/17 3T to HexaLite 29/11 SFB 3T.

The overall cost saving to convert from a 30/25 neck and closure to HexaLite 29/25 will save more than 30 per cent in resin for the neck and closure weight, according to Bericap.
