Consett based Nampak Plastics, the UK’s leading producer of plastic milk bottles, has been awarded a Big Tick at the Business in the Community’s Responsible Business Awards.

Nampak is most well known for introducing Infini to the British market in 2012, a lightweight range of high density polyethylene (HDPE) milk bottles, resulting in the world’s lightest 4-pint 32g bottle, which contains up to 20% less material than a standard bottle, and up to 30% recycled HDPE.

The Big Tick award, widely recognised as an endorsement of responsible business, has been welcomed by the firm’s managing director Eric Collins.

He said: “This is a great testament to the hard work the team has been undertaking.

“At Nampak we work continuously to improve both our business processes and products in order to ensure we’re reducing our carbon footprint and impact on the environment wherever possible.”
