Innovative and versatile crush mate bottles

Lion Dairy & Drinks’ new Crush Mate Bottles are finalists in the 2018 Packaging & Processing Innovation and Design Awards (PIDA).

The PIDA Awards, which recognise those making a significant difference in their field across Australia and New Zealand, are the exclusive feeder program for the prestigious WorldStar Packaging Awards.

Crush Mate Bottles are a finalist in both the 2018 Sustainable Packaging Design Award and also the 2018 Design Innovation of the Year Award (Beverage Category). The Sustainable Packaging Design Award is designed to recognise companies that have developed innovative packaging or processing solutions that incorporates sustainability considerations.

The new 2L bottles, which is the most commonly purchased milk bottle size – are easy to crush and recycle and come with an easy grip that make them really easy to pour.

The lightweight bottles offer better pouring control thanks to the design’s larger hand size that suits everyone.

The benefits are also that they are easy to crush as the design allows them to be easily compressed. The Crush Mate bottles have been designed for more effective recycling which allows customers and consumers four times as many bottles in the recycle bin.

The Crush Mate Bottles are now used across our Dairy Farmers, Pura and Masters 2L white and flavoured milk products. If you want to see these very clever and sustainable Bottles in action, watch the video here
