The OpTri bottle for tube feeding nutrition represents a major advance in safety, user experience, and sustainability. Designed to collapse, the bottle releases product by gravity and eliminates the risk of air or environmental contamination.
Inspired by discussions with users the needs for ease of use and hygiene were addressed by a large hook, an easy to read label and a non-detachable flip-top cap.
End of life was improved by using recyclable materials. Compared to previous production process we attained an 85% reduction in water usage and a 21% reduction in carbon emissions.
