White paper: The supply chain benefits of using non-returnable PET kegs

30 June 2014

The international beer market has undergone significant change in recent years. Breweries have been trying to expand their outlets and exploit new markets. Transportation routes and the length of time empty containers remain in transit have both expanded. This has had a huge impact on the draught beer market. There is clearly a preference for draught beer in smaller containers, with 20 litre or 30 litre containers now replacing the previously popular 50 litre variety. Petainer commissioned an independent analysis of the supply chain benefits of using non-returnable PET kegs. The analysis compared multiple aspects of the use of steel kegs and PET kegs. The findings are outlined in a white paper.
