Petainer, the market leader in innovative PET packaging, has appointed three new distributors in Europe, expanding its footprint in the region. The new distributors are Ice Techic in Bulgaria, BrewTec Europe in France and Scangothia in Sweden.
The distributors will be promoting and 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.
Both PetainerKeg™ Classic and PetainerKeg™ 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*.
Brett Lamont, Distribution Director at Petainer, said: “I am delighted to announce our new distribution partnerships as part of our growth strategy. It makes the petainerKeg™ range readily available across Europe and enhances our ability to support breweries, large and small.”
