SSPP: Liquid food and beverages in refillable packaging

SSPP: Liquid food and beverages in refillable packaging

Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, will invest up to £1.5 million in innovative projects as part of the Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging (SSPP) Challenge.

The aim of this competition is to support business-led projects that demonstrate a reuse or refill packaging system for liquid food and beverage products at scale in a retail chain.

Grants are available for projects that enable liquid products currently sold in single-use packaging to be purchased in refillable packaging. Packaging can be either already pre-filled or refilled in-store for liquids, including milk, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages and sauces.

Your project must be or involve at least one large retail chain as project lead or grant-funded partner. You must include five or more stores as part of an in-store pilot, lasting at least six months.
