CanCollar is a paperboard packaging solution for multipack cans and Coca-Cola European Partners is to launch the packaging in Spain. The move supports its work, in partnership with Coca-Cola, to remove all unnecessary or hard to recycle plastic from its portfolio, avoiding the use of more than 11,000 tonnes of virgin plastic a year across western Europe.

Initially, Coca-Cola European Partners will launch the new, PEFC certified  recyclable and sustainably sourced paperboard CanCollar in the Balearic Islands in November 2020, a first in Europe. bThis will replace the current Hi-cone solution and remove more than 18t of plastic annually.
