Loop Industries, Inc. announced it has entered into a multiyear supply framework with Coca-Cola system’s Cross Enterprise Procurement Group (CEPG) to supply 100 percent recycled and sustainable Loop PET plastic from Loop’s joint venture facility with Indorama Ventures Limited in the United States to authorized Coca-Cola bottlers who enter into supply agreements with Loop. Indorama Ventures is a global chemicals company, specializing in PET and fibers.
“We are very proud to become a supplier of Loop-branded PET resin to the members of the Coca-Cola system’s Cross Enterprise Procurement Group,” said Daniel Solomita, founder and CEO of Loop Industries, in a statement. “We are especially pleased to be able to assist Coca-Cola’s authorized bottlers as they work to meet their recycled content ambitions.”
“Like all responsible companies, we need to be selective in choosing our packaging materials so that we continue to eliminate waste and work to reduce the environmental impact,” said Ron Lewis, chief supply chain officer at Coca-Cola European Partners, a bottler member of CEPG, in a statement. “Investments like this one with Loop Industries support our goal to ensure that at least 50 percent of the material we use for our PET bottles comes from recycled plastic and will help us divert more materials from landfills and build a stronger circular plastic economy.”
This arrangement continues the progress being made by Loop as it commercializes its depolymerization technology, which will help reduce global plastic waste and enable major global brands to meet their sustainability goals.
