AriZona Beverage moves to PET hot-fillable bottle

AriZona Beverage Co. has commercialized Constar Intl.'s ( VCT™ (vertical compensation technology) PET bottle for its ready-to-drink beverages in seven SKUs. The iced teas, lemonade, fruit punch and juices now come in a 20-oz, panel-less, PET bottle designed for hot-fill beverages. A "tallboy" with a "special geometric design," the bottle accommodates the initial heat of hot filling and the proceeding cooling process without paneling or collapsing. The bottle's rigidity is similar to glass and imparts a quality brand image.
