Asahi Beverages welcomes the news from Victorian Premier, Dan Andrews, that the State Government will implement a container deposit scheme. 

Peter Margin, Chairman Asahi Beverages: “As a major beverage company, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment.

“Last week, we announced our intention to form a joint venture with Pact Group and Cleanaway to jointly develop a plastic pelletising facility to close the loop and contribute to a circular economy, helping turn plastic bottles back into new bottles.

 “Introducing a container deposit scheme in Victoria will help improve recycling rates. We’re ready to support and play our part in implementing an efficient and well-run container deposit scheme in Victoria, which aligns with other schemes in operation throughout Australia.”

Asahi Beverages is proud to join with Pact and Cleanaway to form a joint venture to develop a plastic recycling plant to close the loop and contribute to a circular economy in Australia.

The three parties have today announced they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly develop a local plastic pelletising facility.

It is anticipated that the facility will process up to 28,000 tonnes of plastic bottles and other recyclables into flake and food grade pellets which will be used as a raw material for the production of packaging for food and beverages.

The proposed facility will be located in Albury/Wodonga to service markets across the East Coast and create approximately 30 local jobs in regional Australia.

It is anticipated that the facility will be operational by December 2021.
