Petainer launches its craft brewer offer in Spain and Portugal
Petainer, the market leader in innovative PET packaging, is focusing on the fast-growing micro and craft brewer markets in Spain and Portugal as part of its global expansion plans. The business has made a significant investment to ensure that it can support these key markets effectively and efficiently, and has appointed Dani Vall in Spain and Pedro Crispim in Portugal as the official distributors of petainerKeg™.
Petainer’s market-leading PET one-way petainerKeg™ is increasingly being used as a low-cost alternative to traditional steel kegs because it offers significant cost of ownership and sustainability benefits. It also provides enhanced product protection, making sure that the beer is as good as the day it was brewed for up to a year.
Brett Lamont, Sales Director Distribution at Petainer, said: “Spain and Portugal are exciting opportunities for us with rapidly growing craft beer markets. I am delighted that we have appointed two new distributors for petainerKeg™ in the region who can support us with our growth plans.”
Dani Vall said: “New craft breweries are opening every day in Spain and I am seeing huge demand for the one-way petainerKeg™, thanks to its low total cost of ownership and ease of use.”
Pedro Crispim said: “In Portugal, the popularity of craft beer is also increasing. I expect this trend to continue as more micro and craft breweries open, presenting an exciting growth opportunity for petainerKeg™.
Using its knowledge and experience of working with larger, global brewers, Petainer has developed a highly-tailored craft brewery proposition. Petainer’s wide-ranging offer to support smaller breweries also includes:
Petainer’s on-line shop www.petainershop.com makes purchasing smaller quantities of petainerKeg™ as quick and efficient as possible. Brewers can choose, purchase and take delivery of their kegs in three to four days - with the click of a mouse.
The free petainerKeg™ App ensures that help is always on hand when using the kegs - in addition to Petainer’s team of technical experts who are available to provide advice and support when needed. The App provides step-by-step instructions for the correct use of the petainerKeg™ with Well-Type Fitting (S and D type with no pressure release valve) and with Flat-Type Fitting (A type with no pressure release valve) which is coming soon. The app is available for free on the Apple App Store https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/petainerkeg/id1101184822?ls=1&mt=8 and Google play https://play.google.com/store/search?q=petainer&hl=en_GB.
