Nutricia's New Recyclable Collapsible Tube Feed Packaging

Nutricia is pleased to announce the launch of the OpTri bottle – a new collapsible and recyclable tube feed bottle – that will replace the existing 500ml & 1000ml pouches of Nutricia's tube feeds in the Infatrini, Nutrini, Tentrini, and Nutrison* ranges, in a phased manner starting late July 2018.

NutriciaOpTriThe OpTri bottle has been designed in collaboration with healthcare professionals, patients and carers, for better usability, better safety, and a better planet. The OpTri bottle is:

  • Easy to use, hygienic and safe, with a flip-top ISO compliant cap that requires less handling, reducing the risk of contamination
  • OpTri bottle is recyclable and manufactured using less water (85% less) and produces fewer CO2 emissions (21% less) than the current Nutricia pouch1
  • OpTri bottle use reclaimable plastic (waste plastic from production is reused and reintegrated into the manufacturing process).

The nutritional composition and price of all products will remain the same.

The OpTri bottle continues to be fully compatible with all UK manufacturer enteral giving sets with its EnPlus port under the non-detachable resealable flip-top cap and a 40mm connection too.
