COMMERCIALISATION/PARTNERING STRATEGY PGBC makes profits selling additive, and oxo-biodegradable pre-forms and bottles with no costs attached, by licensing the REVERTE™ logo at 1 penny per bottle. Thus, PGBC has developed a business plan similar to that of NutraSweet. PGBC wants its REVERTE™ logo on every plastic bottle globally and desires the REVERTE™ logo to be the “tiebreaker” when the consumer is making a buying decision between two similar products displayed side by side on the retailer’s shelf. 22 23
