The statutory juice deposit for non-refillable plastic bottles will be extended to juices and nectars. The deposit will be levied on all non-refillable plastic bottles of up to three liters from January 1, 2022. The mandatory deposit on juice and nectar is a long overdue step towards closed cycles and more sustainable packaging solutions

As a company, we are actively committed to sustainability together with our partners!

Eckes-Granini informs its consumers about the sustainable novelty and the gradual integration of PET containers into the learned deposit system with deposit notices on the bottle labels.

From July 3, 2021, to June 30, 2022, a "transition period" will be in effect that will allow pawned and unpawned products to coexist. The familiar DPG symbol on the label helps to identify the„Die Ausweitung der Pfandpflicht macht das Pfand für alle Verbraucherinnen und Verbraucher besser verständlich. Denn zukünftig heißt es einfach: Auf alle Einweggetränkeflaschen aus Kunststoff und Getränkedosen sind 25 Cent Pfand zu zahlen, unabhängig vom Inhalt.“ Svenja Schulze, Ex-Bundesumweltministerin

Beverage cartons, for example from manufacturers such as Tetra Pak, are still exempt from the regulation because this packaging is considered environmentally friendly. Their recyclability is estimated at 90 percent.
