GENERAL TRIAS (GenTri), Cavite – Senator Cynthia Villar, Cavite Governor Juanito Victor “Jonvic” Remulla Jr., and GenTri Mayor Luis “Jon Jon” Ferrer IV recently visited the new PETValue Philippines facility in Gateway Business Park, Barangay Javalera.

Garith McGeown, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Coca-Cola Beverage Philippines, and Tony del Rosario, president of Coca-Cola Philippines, VP of Franchise Operations East, welcomed their guests in a simple ceremony.

The said facility, which is a joint venture of Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines, Inc. and Indorama Ventures of Thailand, is the first food-grade bottle-to-bottle recycling facility in the country.

Using modern technology, PETValue aims to help collect and recycle polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles to protect our environment.

Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines, Inc. (CCBPI) – Coca-Cola’s local bottling arm and one of the country’s top employers – remains committed to supporting the Filipino people throughout the pandemic and the collective journey to recovery. In partnership with Indorama Ventures, a global leader in packaging solutions and green technology – PETValue Philippines, the country’s first food-grade bottle-to-bottle recycling facility, is now fully operational.

This program helped uplift livelihoods in the waste value chain with the upcoming establishment and institutionalization of circularity for 100% recyclable packaging, specifically used PET plastic bottles.

PETValue is Coca-Cola’s biggest “World Without Waste” (WWW) investment in the Philippines. With the vision to collect and recycle 100% of its plastic bottles by 2030, the facility will help ensure that used PET bottles – packaging that is 100% recyclable and not single-use will be given a new life and function as they are collected, processed, and used many times over within a circular economy.
