Tethered caps are the latest additions to our range of openings and closures, allowing you to achieve your ambitions in three essential areas – food safety, food waste, and the environment – simultaneously. We are introducing them now, well ahead of the legal obligation, as part of our ambition to deliver the world's most sustainable food package.

Preventing plastic litter

The EU Single-Use Plastic (SUP) Directive, which mandates that single-use beverage containers made with plastic will only be allowed on the market if their caps and lids remain attached, will come into force in 2024. The directive is an integral part of the EU's wider approach announced in their Plastics Strategy and an important element of the EU Circular Economy Action Plan. By starting the deployment of our tethered cap solutions portfolio, we plan to convert 30% of the total installed base in Europe by the end of 2022, before working towards full compliance by July 2024.

LightWing™ 30

The LightWing™ 30 is a new flip cap concept with a self-locking hinge, developed to provide convenience for in-home consumption. The closure snaps shut for later consumption. The neck of the closure is moulded in the filling machine directly onto the packaging material using the direct injection moulding concept (DIMC). It is moulded flat against the product side of the packaging material, creating a large flat pouring area of 30 mm that delivers excellent pouring. The lid is applied downstream. Available in several different colours, there is also a plant-based option using polymers derived from sugarcane, increasing the product's overall renewable content.
