Plastic packaging manufacturer Petainer and BLUE PET (its Brazilian partner) have begun manufacturing one-way PET kegs at its new blow moulding plant in Brazil. Located in Tijucas, Santa Catarina, in the South of Brazil, the new facility has a production line for petainerKegs that will cater to customers in Brazil as well as other South American countries.
One-way kegs have become increasingly popular among South American breweries as they are used only once and can be fully recycled while also reducing costly and complex return logistics and washing processes. One-way kegs also provide enhanced product protection as it ensures that the beer is as good as the day it was brewed for over nine months. In addition, the facility in Brazil will help reduce supply costs to local South American breweries.
Currently, 30L petainerKeg Classic are being manufactured in the new plant with plans to produce more from the portfolio.
Petainer kegs were launched in Brazil about 1 and a half years ago and the market has quickly embraced one-way kegs enabling the company to establish a full in-country manufacturing line of its kegs.
