The Beverage Company is delighted to announce our membership of The PET Recycling Company, trading as PETCO (via Little Green Beverages).

PETCO takes Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for the end-of-life solution for the PET bottle sector on a collaborative basis, both financially and operationally.

As an industry-driven and industry-financed environmental solution for post-consumer PET, PETCO is funded by a voluntary levy paid by members who purchase PET resin.  Since its foundation in 2004, the imitative has made a truly positive impact in the South Africa.

As a member, The Beverage Company is committed to:

  • Unwavering commitment to operating in an environmentally conscious manner
