S KOREA - Lotte Liquor BG Co Ltd is converting to a mini 28mm closure for its popular Soju line of Korean liquors for greater cost efficiency and environmental benefits.
The wide variety of Soju from Lotte Liquor is available in both 600ml and 1.8L PET bottles. By converting to Closure Systems International’s (CSI’s) AS-Lok mini 28mm closure system designed especially for PET 1881 short-height bottle finishes, Lotte Soju liquor packages are now more environmentally friendly and cost efficient.
The lightweight AS-Lok mini 28mm is a one-piece linerless, tamper evident closure, ideal for liquor and other non-carbonated beverages, including aseptically-filled beverages.
Noting that raw material reductions in both the bottle finish and the closure have yielded significant environmental and economic sustainability benefits, CSI said, “Lotte is dedicated to developing and manufacturing products that reflect the constantly evolving needs of customers.
“Lotte has recognized the growing importance of sustainability in today’s marketplace, and CSI is pleased to have been selected to partner with Lotte to address this need. “
