Petainer Appoints N/Pack as New Distributor in Brazil


Petainer, the market leader in innovative PET packaging, has appointed N/Pack do Brasil Ltda as a key distributor of petainerKeg™ in Brazil. 

Petainer launched its stand-alone business in Brazil earlier this year as part of its growth strategy for the Latin American region.  Petainer is targeting the rapidly growing craft brewing sector in Brazil and large regional brewers with its innovative one-way PET kegs. 

Today’s announcement means that Petainer’s footprint in the country is significantly increased and it can ensure on-demand availability and supply for brewers.

Ricardo Leonel Vieira, Brazil Country Manager, Petainer, said: “I am delighted to announce our distribution partnership with N/Pack. It makes petainerKeg™ readily available in the biggest beer producing region of the country and has been endorsed by many successful craft brewers.”

Samuel Cavalcanti, owner of N/Pack, said: “Bodebrown has been using one-way PET kegs from some time and we recognise the huge potential they have to transform the draught beer market in Brazil.  This is a great opportunity for us and Petainer.”

Thanks to state of the art draught beer, combined with efficient logistics and the petainerkeg™ packaging solution, Bodebrown has now accumulated over 130 awards and prizes, and has twice been recognized for the best beer of Brazil. It has also have won 18 gold medals and two platinum medals at Mondial de La Bière, in Montreal, Canada.

N/Pack will be selling products from the petainerKeg™ range, including the Classic keg and Linestar, which are increasingly being used as a more economical and efficient alternative to traditional steel kegs and glass bottles by brewers around the world. 

PetainerKeg™ Classic and Linestar are used only once and are fully recyclable, cutting out costly return logistics and washing processes.  In addition to significant cost of ownership and sustainability benefits, they provide enhanced product protection, making sure that the beer is as good as the day it was brewed for over nine months*.
