KHS: “Packaging of the Year 2011”
The Petainer keg packaging marketed by KHS GmbH, Dortmund, Germany, and Petainer Czech Holdings s.r.o., Aš, Czech Republic, has recently been voted Packaging of the Year 2011 in the Czech Republic. The certificate was presented to Petainer by syba, the Czech packaging association, which is a member of the World Packaging Organization.
According to KHS the biggest advantage of the inexpensive, disposable Petainer keg is that it does not have to be returned to the brewery and is also 100 % recyclable. As opposed to the classic refillable steel keg, this reduces the cost of keg washing, logistics, storage and on keg repair. Moreover, the huge advantage in weight that Petainer kegs have over classic steel kegs makes these containers – empty or racked – much easier to handle during transport and at their final destination in the hospitality and retail trade. Petainer kegs come complete with disposable plastic fittings that can be easily connected to existing tapping equipment, so that there is no need for additional investment at the retail end.
Within the cooperation between the two companies KHS supports Petainer Holdings UK Ltd. by providing turnkey filling and packaging systems for Petainer kegs. KHS is also the sole sales partner for Petainer keg products worldwide.
