PROSPECTS
Switch from glass bottles to metal beverage cans continues in beer, RTDs and cider

The weakness in volume sales of alcoholic drinks packaging is largely attributable to contraction in beer packaging, which accounts for the lion’s share of the total packaging units in Canada. Nevertheless, there is one area of beer packaging, and overall alcoholic drinks packaging, experiencing healthy growth, with the continued rapid conversion from glass bottles, the dominant packaging format for beer just a few years ago, to metal beverage cans.

While offering convenience and variety with metal cans and other packaging formats, industry players are also placing a razor-sharp focus on packaging labels in an effort to enrich the consumer experience. This is particularly of relevance in light of the rising influence of the younger demographic constantly seeking unique and interesting experiences, which is among the key drivers behind the craft movement.
