Coca-Cola Is Launching New Bottle Size For The First Time In A Decade

Coca-Cola’s new 13.2-ounce recyclable bottle that some customers would see on shelves this week was made entirely of other plastics and it was the latest move in Coca-Cola’s several-year initiative in order to reduce its plastic waste.

Also, Coca-Cola was hoping that the size could attract younger, under-25 drinkers who were seeking sustainable packaging (and sometimes even avoiding the company).

Coca-Cola’s new bottle would be available before the nationwide launch this summer and would be available in selected states across the Northeast — including New York and Connecticut — as well as in Florida and California starting this month.

In a report on CNN, Coca-Cola described the size as a “more sippable package” and it would debut with the company’s most popular softdrinks such as Coca-Cola, Coke Zero Sugar, and Diet Coke at a suggested retail price (SRP) of USD 1.59.

We’ve been listening to consumers and they have been telling us they want something a little smaller and a little more easy to consume. We took this opportunity to make a bottle with plastic that’s 100% recyclable,” Coca-Cola’s general manager of sustainability Alpa Sutaria told CNN Business.

Coca-Cola’s 13.2-ounce size was slightly larger than its aluminum can option and was smaller than the typical 20-ounce bottle. Unique sizes such as the 7.5-ounce mini could have garnered strong sales.
