Bonaqua's First Individual Sale Label-less Bottled Water Anywhere in the World

The locally produced Bonaqua® Mineralized Water uses 100% rPET for production, and makes its bottle 52.8%[2] lighter than the conventional PET bottle. Using laser incising technology to highlight product information on the bottle and having a bottle cap (also smaller than the conventional bottle cap) with a sales barcode enables individual sale of the products. The design and the products' broader availability allows more Hong Kong consumers to participate in building a world without waste. The effort echoes Bonaqua®'s commitment to sustainable solutions and inspiring more consumers to adopt sustainable lifestyles.

New Green Community Program Is About to Start

Bonaqua® is committed to promoting sustainable development throughout the years, e.g. conducting community sustainability awareness campaigns, e.g., the 'Power of Less' campaign. This year, partnering with its bottling partner Swire Coca-Cola Hong Kong, Bonaqua® will contribute HK$ 2 million for piloting a community packaging waste recovery program aiming to collect and recycle used bottles or cans in a more efficient approach.

Green Market Fair Promotes Sustainable Lifestyles

Bonaqua® is delighted to present the inaugural Green Market Fair, to be held at the Steam Hub on the first floor of Central Market from 26 to 30 May 2022. It will feature a series of exhibits and various workshops, allowing visitors to practice recycling and sustainable living. Four Eco workshops, curated by local artists to highlight the potential use of sustainable materials in handicraft, art, and fashion.

"As Hong Kong's most popular bottled water brand, it's a bold move for Bonaqua® to pilot the launch of its individual sale label-less bottled water anywhere in the world. We are indeed championing a potentially game-changing form of future packaging. By making the Bonaqua label-less bottled water available to a broader range of customers, we would like to invite more consumers to take part in building a world without waste. By going label-less, Bonaqua is enhabling the 'Power of Less'," says Tim Warwick, Vice President of Operations for Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau and Mongolia at The Coca-Cola Company.

"As Coca-Cola's bottling partner, we will continue to leverage our expertise and develop new manufacturing technologies so as to offer consumers even more eco-friendly beverage choices. We weave sustainability into the fabric of our endeavors, including design, sourcing, production and delivery. It is our mission to contribute to a more sustainable way of living," says Connie Yeung, Director and General Manager of Swire Coca-Cola HK.
