MUNCIE, Ind. – Verallia North America is pleased to announce success in developing new containers for wine customers in the United States and Canada that meet the Liquor Control Board of Ontario’s (LCBO) new lightweight glass strategy for wine products. In an effort to reduce the carbon footprint of products while also providing ergonomic benefits through reduction in overall case weights, the LCBO announced, a new national standard of 420 gram maximum weight for table wine packaged in glass and priced at or below $15.00. The LCBO’s April 29, 2010 announcement followed its February 8, 2010 communication establishing a new 18.9 kilogram maximum case weight standard for all products, effective September 30, 2010. “After receiving notice of LCBO’s new glass standard and of their intent to make it mandatory, we immediately began working with our wine customers to develop a wine bottle that met the new lighter weight standard,” said Bob Parise, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Verallia’s Wine Sector. “We were pleased to get ahead of LCBO’s timeline by creating two bottles that already meet the lighter weight standard and we were equally excited to create a luxurious look for consumer appeal.” To date, Verallia has successfully reduced the weight on two stock bottles without compromising the quality of the glass package. The ECO Impulse and the ECO Impulse Stelvin® are specifically designed for the Canadian market. Prior to the re-design by Verallia, the bottles had a design weight of 475 grams (16.75 ounces). With customer input and precise engineering, the new bottles have a design weight of 411 grams (14.5 ounces) reducing the carbon footprint and improving the ergonomic benefits for the entire industry. “The two stock bottles fit nicely into Verallia’s company-wide sustainable development initiative which provides a vision to continue designing high quality glass packaging with improved sustainability or less environmental impact,” said Steve Rhea, Senior Vice President Strategic Development for Verallia North America. Both Claret style ECO Impulse bottles are produced at Verallia’s Port Allegany, Penn. plant and are available to wine customers in both Flint and Champagne Green colors.
