This collaboration reflects a good relationship between the organizations, as IVL started supplying bottles to Yanhee Vitamin Water since 2017 with TPAC supplying the iconic closures. As the demand is increasing, IVL has decided to increase capacity of PET bottle by investing 75 million Baht in a state-of-art production facility at Nakhon Pathom with the capacity of 250 million PET bottles per year. The extended capacity will enable Yanhee Vitamin Water to better support the wellbeing of consumers.
