Adoption of the New South Wales Government’s container deposit scheme is expected to result in increased prices for beverage products. The scheme will come into effect on 1 December 2017, and it will be managed by a consortium of soft drink and brewing companies that includes Lion, Coopers and Coca-Cola Amatil. The scheme is expected to have the most impact on sales of large packs of soft drink and beer, along with private label bottled water.
