Lightweight metal crowns help brewer make savings

SABMiller has announced that its Peruvian subsidiary, Backus, has developed a new lightweight metal crown for beer bottles that could save the brewer US$12.6 million every year. In cooperation with Packaging Products Peru, Backus has developed a new, low-gauge bottle crown that will significantly reduce the amount of steel used in production and have a positive impact on the group’s raw material costs and CO2 emissions.
