The 10 flat bottle transit case holds ten full-sized, 75cl flat wine bottles in a compact case which would otherwise carry approximately just four traditional, round glass bottles of the same volume. This will cut greenhouse gas emissions and business costs from the transportation of wine by about 60%. The launch received extensive pick up across UK and international media outlets and further cements Garçon Wines’ commitment to providing significant innovation in wine packaging and logistics, while prioritizing sustainability to protect the health of our planet.
Just three weeks after its launch, the case with the flat bottles – made in the UK from 100% post-consumer recycled PET – won ‘Best Sustainable Packaging’ at the World Food Innovation Awards 2019. Here, Garçon Wines took home a double win, also winning ‘Best Packaging Design’ for their innovative, flat bottle.
The multipurpose bottle then went on to scoop ‘Innovation of the Year’ in the Onboard Hospitality Awards 2019, where the revered panel of travel industry judges noted it as “a really great idea” with “great potential for the onboard market”. Most recently in April, Garçon Wines, together with their manufacturers RPC M&H Plastics, were crowned winner of the Plastic Packaging Product of the Year at Plastics Recycling Europe Awards 2019, triumphing over industry giants such as Procter and Gamble.
