Exposure to light affects nutritional value (vitamins A and B2) and taste profile of milk. Fonterra’s Light Proof™ bottle innovation applies triple layer technology, ensuring the HDPE bottle is light weight and recyclable. The inside and outside layers are opaque; the middle layer; coloured black, blocks out 100% of light.
Anchor’s Light Proof™ bottle is made from the same high-grade, recyclable HDPE plastic as the old bottle thus, nothing has change in terms of kerbside pick-up or drop-off to collection centres. Capacity exists amongst recyclers to use 100% of recycled Anchor bottles in the manufacture of new products.
