Nestlé Waters has developed a new bottle for S. Pellegrino to help the mineral water keep its fizz for longer.

The inside of its 50cl PET bottles have been coated with a thin film known as ‘silica dioxide’. The coating would help to preserve the sparkling content of S. Pellegrino as well as increase the shelf life of the drink by three months, Nestlé Waters said,

“By utilising the coating technology in our S. Pellegrino 50cl bottles, we are confident this investment will help drive our efforts to export the finest side of Italy to consumers as well as reinvigorate the bottled water category,” said Nestlé Waters UK country manager Paolo Sangiorgi.
