Petainer, a leader in plastic container innovation, and its Brazilian partner, BLUE PET, have started manufacturing Petainer’s one-way PET kegs at the new blow moulding plant in Tijucas, Santa Catarina, in the South of Brazil.
The new plant will be the manufacturing hub for the South American region leading to the reduction in supply chain costs and making it further cost-effective to use petainerKeg compared to other forms of packaging.
One-way kegs are used only once and are fully recyclable thus reducing costly and complex return logistics and washing processes. In addition, they offer improved product protection to ensure that the beer is good for about a period of nine months from the date of its brew. BLUE PET currently manufactures the 30L petainerKeg Classic and will increase its production in the future.
“We launched in Brazil only eighteen months ago so establishing full in-country manufacturing of our kegs is a significant milestone”, said, Ricardo Leonel Vieira, Brazil Country Manager, Petainer. He, added, “It is an exciting market and one that is embracing one-way PET kegs, thanks to the many benefits they offer.”
Petainer has expertise in revolutionizing the impact of packaging on an economy by lowering the costs and improving sustainability and at the same time extending protection to the products of world-leading brands.
Petainer has five manufacturing sites in the world along with sales teams serving different markets working alongside a network of official distributors. The company offers local market expertise and technical support to the customers anywhere in the world.
Petainer has a 35-year experience in innovative and right solutions for its customers with the support of multi-skills of its polymer scientists, designers, packaging technologists, brew masters, blowing and filling line specialists.
