Squattle International has won the Environmental Excellence in Logistics and the Supply Chain awards in the National Logistics and Supply Chain Awards,.
The national judges unanimously felt that Squattle was the only submission that fully satisfied the conditions of the trophy and thus was the sole finalist and winner.
The judging panel also said that Squattle, a squashable bottle, was destined to make its mark on the world stage as an Australian invention in advanced liquid package technology, and they expected it would transform methods of liquid storage well into the next century.
For inventor Scott Brown receiving the Environmental Excellence Award is recognition for six hard years developing and designing the most revolutionary bottle ever made in Australia.
The Squattle is a squashable bottle incorporating a patented closure in the form of a floating valve which offers the manufacturer the ability to prolong the life or potency of the contents, even after the package has been opened.
