(BOCA RATON, Fla.) -- H.J. Heinz Co. announced plans to use more environmentally-friendly bottles Wednesday.
Heinz will start using Coca-Cola's trademarked "PlantBottle" system, which requires less petroleum. It plans to produce 120 million ketchup bottles with the new system, thereby altering a fifth of Heinz's global products.
The eco-conscious PlantBottles are made with sugarcane ethanol grown in Brazil. Coca-Cola and Heinz intend to diversify the technology over the coming years.
