Officials of Voltic and EPA taste water from the new twist bottle
VOLTIC (GH) Limited introduced its new twist bottle to consumers on Thursday at a colourful ceremony in Accra.
The launch was part of the company’s goal to drive the recycling message and invite consumers to be a part of our eco-friendly journey.
The new twist bottle which has 7% less plastic gives consumers the ease of twisting the bottle after consumption as Voltic continuously develop sustainable ways to manufacture, distribute and sell its products.
Speaking at the launch, Francois Gazania, Managing Director of the company, indicated that “when we grow our business the right way, not just the easy way, we help create opportunity for our communities, our customers, our employees and our shareholders.
“With the growing concern about the spate of plastic pollution in the world over culminating in the recent launch of the Ghana National Plastic Action Plan, it has become obvious that the more sustainable way to manage plastic waste is to collaborate with all stakeholders along the value chain. This starts with an action to encourage segregation and recycling of post-consumer plastic right at source.
“As a business who has made environmental sustainability part of its quality brand offering, Voltic has in line with its unbridled commitment to recycling, remodelled its bottle into an eco-friendly pack affirming The Coca Cola company’s 2030 commitment towards a World Without Waste.”
Raymond Mensah-Gbetivi, Sales & Marketing Manager of Voltic, added that “the new TWIST is now our identity at Voltic as we respond to the ever-changing consumer needs and position Voltic as a brand with purpose.
The Coca-Cola Company and all its bottling partners are leading the industry to help collect and recycle a bottle for everyone we sell by 2030. We’re working to bring people together to help us collect and recycle a bottle we sell.”
He further added that “the Twisty journey is summed up in the tagline: “Drink, Twist and Recycle”, which is a call to consumers to be part of the recycling agenda of the brand”.
The colourful event brought together key players in the recycling industry, the media, influencers and Stonebwoy, who was introduced as the brand ambassador of Voltic to champion the brand’s agenda of sustainable plastic management in line with the SDGs.
