Refill Milk Plus
£500k - £1.5m
UKRI-Innovate UK’s Smart Sustainable Plastic Packaging (SSPP) Challenge will run a competition to fund projects that demonstrate the viability of retailing liquid products in refillable packaging at scale.
Due to open on Monday 18 September and run for 6 weeks, the new SSPP competition will provide grants of between £0.5m and £1.5m for projects that can demonstrate, at scale, a system enabling high volume/fast-moving liquid products (including milk, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages and sauces) to be purchased in refillable packaging – either already pre-filled or refilled in store.
Projects must start by 01 April 2024 and should end by 31 March 2025. In addition, projects must include at least one large retail chain and/or brand owner as project lead or grant-funded partner, and the in-store pilot must include a minimum of five stores (although bids featuring more extensive pilots are actively encouraged) and include a pilot period of at least six months.
More fund details will be available once the competition opens on the 18th of September 2023.Contact us
