Own-Brand Paper Wine Bottles – Supermarket News

UK | Made from 94 percent recycled paperboard, the Cambalala South African Shiraz and Cambalala South African Sauvignon Blanc will land in stores nationwide this month.

Aldi has launched the UK’s first, supermarket own-brand paper wine bottles. Made from 94 percent recycled paperboard and lined with a food-grade pouch to contain the wine, the new bottles are fully recyclable and five times lighter than a standard glass bottle.

By replacing glass bottles with paper and stocking in stores nationwide, Aldi has generated a carbon footprint reduction that is equivalent to driving around the planet 5.8 times – giving eco-conscious wine lovers even more reason to say cheers this spring. Not only do Aldi’s new bottles deliver impressive green credentials, but the easy-to-carry, shatterproof bottles are a great option to take on the go and land just in time for the UK summer.

“Shoppers are striving to become more sustainable in their everyday lives, looking for small ways to make a big difference for our planet, said Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK.

“Our Buying Teams are continuously thinking about how we can evolve our ranges to offer greater value and greener choices. We are proud to be the first supermarket to launch an own-brand paper bottle, helping to drive sustainable change.”

Aldi has worked with FrugalpacTM on the supermarket-first initiative. The Ipswich based company is on a mission to reduce the impact of carbon on the planet through engineering sustainable packaging, using recycled paper, which is both light in weight and easy to recycle again.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Aldi on this landmark new line. Our ambition has always been to allow more people the opportunity to enjoy our paper Frugal Bottles, giving them greener choices. “Launching in a major UK supermarket means more shoppers can now drink responsibly and sustainably and we are so pleased to be part of that journey,” said Malcolm Waugh, CEO of Frugalpac.

Alongside the paper bottles, Aldi is reducing the wine label size across its popular Grapevine range. Available on bottles in stores now, the labels are FSC certified and made from 100% recycled paper fiber. The initiative is due to roll out across all core lines by 2026.
