PITTSBURGH, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- U.S. ketchup maker H.J. Heinz Co. said Wednesday it had formed a bottling partnership with Coca-Cola Co. to begin using more Earth-friendly packaging.

Heinz said it would begin selling 20-ounce bottles using Coca-Cola's "PlantBottle," which was developed in 2009, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

William Johnson, who is chairman, president and chief executive officer for Heinz, called it "the start of a great strategic partnership."

Coca-Cola Chairman Muhtar Kent said the partnership with Heinz "was a great start," indicating the soda maker has had discussions with other firms about use of the bottles made partly from plants.
