Petainer 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 first blown petainerKegs already rolled off the production line ready to go to our brewery customers in the region. The plant serves the domestic market and will also become the manufacturing hub for the South American region.
Blue PET currently manufactures the 30l petainerKeg Classic but will produce more from the portfolio in the future. One-way kegs are proving popular in the region because they are used only once and are fully recyclable, cutting out costly, complex return logistics and washing processes. In addition to cost of ownership and sustainability benefits, they provide good product protection.
