Prik & Tik chooses Petainer’s BPA-free cooler

Leading beverage specialist, Prik & Tik in Belgium has chosen Petainer’s BPA-free* PET water cooler for its new water cooler product.  The cooler is filled by Evidel N.V. (Ginstberg Brand) and is available in Prik & Tik’s retail outlets in Belgium on a deposit and return basis.

PetainerCooler™ is a fully recyclable, reusable water cooler with market-leading durability and strength, outperforming other PET water cooler bottles in drop tests.  The cooler is also compatible with existing filling equipment and washing machines, avoiding any capital investment required to switch to using the product.  Key features include:

  • - Unlike traditional polycarbonate coolers, PetainerCooler™ is BPA-free, avoiding any health concerns surrounding the chemical
  • - It is shrink-resistant to >40 washing cycles at 63°C/145°F
  • - It can withstand drop tests from 1.5m in the vertical and horizontal direction
  • - PetainerCooler™ is transparent and glossy, featuring a distinctive blue handle, with high scuff resistance, providing long-term visual appeal.

Johan Braekers, Sales Director, of Prik & Tik, said: ““We chose petainerCooler™ because it is well suited to the retail environment, offering real shelf-appeal, thanks to its high quality appearance.  It was important that we found a BPA-free water cooler to ensure we are ahead of any potential legislative changes as uncertainty continues around the potential effects of BPA on health. PetainerCooler™ is the answer to this, combined with its durability, strength and compatibility with our filling partner, Evidel.”

Niko Claeys, Operations Manager, of Evidel, said: “Petainer’s water cooler can be filled in the same way as existing polycarbonate bottles and can be washed at a lower temperature which results in energy savings but without compromising sanitisation.”

Craig Pope, Sales Director at Petainer said: “We are delighted to be working with Prik & Tik and Evidel.  We are seeing interest around the world in petainerCooler™, not just because of its strength and durability, but because it offers a BPA-free solution – an increasing priority in many markets.”
