APPE Packaging, Wrexham, United Kingdom, has won the prestigious 2013 Horners Bottlemakers Award for its ThermaLite hot-fill and pasteurisable PET jar.

Established in 2002, the award is run jointly by the Worshipful Company of Horners (an ancient Livery Company of the City of London) and the British Plastics Federation (BPF). It celebrates innovation in the manufacture of a plastic bottle, jar or hollow container by any process, with significant UK content in design, manufacture and materials, and a proven record of commercial success.

The ThermaLite jar can withstand filling and processing temperatures of up to 95°C and offers food manufacturers and retailers a variety of convenience and sustainability benefits over more traditional packaging formats such as glass. In terms of sustainability, the jar is up to 85 % lighter than glass equivalents with a smaller footprint, delivering huge savings in transport costs both before and after filling. It is also fully recyclable. In addition, the jar uses less energy during the filling process, as well as reducing noise levels and avoiding the risk of breakages on the line.

The ThermaLite jar has already won a number of awards this year. It was named as one of Spain’s top 100 ideas by Actualidad Económica magazine and received two Highly Commended certifications in the Starpack Awards, in the Food, and Environment & Sustainability categories.
