Blue Ocean Closures, a start-up with a worldwide mission to reduce plastics in packaging closures, now announces partnership with Coca-Cola’s EMEA R&D Center in Brussels.

The innovation Blue Ocean Closures is bringing to market is a fiber-based packaging screw cap, that is biobased and recyclable as paper.

“For us to succeed with this groundbreaking move, away from fossil-based plastics, it is extremely important to have global brands onboard, with the ambition and ability to truly making a difference, says Lars Sandberg, CEO of Blue Ocean Closures. And he continues; “We are thrilled to announce our explorative partnership with Coca Cola’s EMEA R&D Center today, focusing on innovation to bring new and more sustainable products to use.”

In line with its ambitions to advance sustainable packaging while reducing the use of non-renewable material, and support its ambitious World Without Waste strategy, Coca-Cola is joining Blue Ocean Closures’ community of pioneering partners.

“We are excited to be part of the pioneer community and to help test and develop this innovation during its continued development. It fits both our sustainability strategy and our on-going exploratory work with future packaging technologies which may complement other, existing types of packaging in our packaging mix,” says Daphné Ronat, Packaging Engineer at the Coca-Cola EMEA R&D Center in Brussels, Belgium.
