Morro materials are being used by global drinks manufacturer Britvic, in an innovation partnership that will see Morro Nutri used to encase Vitamin D in soft drinks.
What we did.
Britvic approached Xampla seeking ways to encapsulate Vitamin D in its products, without degradation of vitamins during the storage and transit process.
The collaborative R&D process saw Xampla work extremely closely with the Britvic team to develop a solution – Morro Nutri – that delivers validated performance in shelf-life conditions and perfectly fits with the Britvic manufacturing process as a drop in solution.
Britvic now has a high performance, drop in solution that protects and ‘micropackages’ Vitamin D in its beverages.
The work that we delivered with Britvic has paved the way for other partnerships with brands looking to use Morro Nutri across a range of vitamins and nutrients.
Morro Nutri not only provides Britvic with an opportunity to deliver more vitamins to their customers, but also offer superior barrier protection to UV light and pasteurisation which means that for the first time drinks manufacturers will be able to combine health claims from vitamin D in drinks in clear, recyclable, plastic bottles. Britvic’s research suggests are 40% more likely to be recycled by consumers than coloured equivalents.
