Recyclable Kegs Ensure Wines are Consistently Delivered in Optimum Condition
MODESTO, Calif. (February 24, 2015) – G3 Enterprises announced today it is entering a partnership with Petainer, an industry-leading manufacturer of PET containers, to leverage the growing popularity of wine-on-tap by offering a one-way keg container that is both environmentally and economically friendly.
“Our new partnership is very exciting. The Petainer 20 liter PET kegs will allow wineries to grow sales of wine-on-tap with a low cost of ownership,” said Mihailo Panovich, Vice President of Sales at G3 Enterprises. “The one-way, recyclable Petainer kegs are a real game changer, offering wineries competitive manufacturing and logistics costs while utilizing the same dispensing systems required for conventional steel kegs.”
Extensive independent test results clearly demonstrate that the Petainer Keg™ is capable of delivering the flavors, aromas and structure of high-quality wines that discerning on-premise and retail customers demand.
“Having G3 Enterprises as a partner is an integral part of bringing Petainer kegs to the U.S.,” said Nigel Pritchard, CEO of Petainer. Nigel added, “G3’s strong industry knowledge and unique ability to provide innovative solutions will greatly benefit the North American wine industry. We will work closely with G3 personnel and customers to deliver superior product quality and technical support. In addition, this strategically important partnership will be the cornerstone of our investment in manufacturing in the US to support our customers, our partners G3 and KHS, and sales operations. ”
The environmental benefits of the light-weight, fully-recyclable Petainer keg system includes low carbon emissions and reduced freight costs. G3 Enterprises will begin offering the wine kegs March 1, 2015. For more information, call 1-800-321-8747 or email: [email protected].
