OneCircle, the global leader in PET kegs, has increased its presence in the US with the appointment of Saxco, the award-winning North American distributor of packaging solutions to the wine, spirits, beer and food markets, as an official reseller of KeyKeg and UniKeg. Today’s announcement is a key part of OneCircle’s US expansion plans and consolidates its position as the market leader in sustainable packaging.
Saxco has been chosen to become an official reseller because it meets OneCircle’s strict criteria of sustainability, innovation, growth, efficiency, and quality.
Headquartered in Northern California in the heart of wine country, Saxco has a strong reputation among wineries as well as breweries across the US. With hundreds of producers already using KeyKeg, its expert packaging team supports customers at every stage of their business lifecycle, ensuring their brand stands out in crowded retail environments, helping increase revenues and manage the cost of supply chain logistics.
In addition to sustainability and significant cost benefits, the unique laminated inner bag inside the high-tech PET container protects the taste and extends the shelf-life of beverages such as wine and beer. For the hospitality industry, which is looking for cleaner and more flexible packaging solutions in the COVID-19-era, there’s the opportunity to offer ‘wine on tap’. This is growing in popularity because it helps restaurants and bars reduce waste, improve their environmental credentials, manage their stock more effectively, and enables them to offer customers a broader range of fresh wines by the glass.
Sean Gallagher, Senior Vice President/General Manager, West Division at Saxco, said: “We are pleased to be adding KeyKeg to our packaging solutions. Not only is it the most sustainable keg on the market but we already have many customers using the kegs for the domestic and export markets. They are also very well-suited to the COVID-19-era because they are clean, safe, and more flexible than other forms of packaging, presenting a significant growth opportunity.”
Marc Kibbey, Senior Business Creator Sales USA, commented: “The US is an exciting market for KeyKeg and UniKeg and are delighted that Saxco is joining our community of resellers, bringing their wealth of knowledge and expertise. This is an important step in our US growth strategy and one which will help us tap into a huge potential market for our kegs.”
Both KeyKeg and UniKeg are 100% recyclable, and 30% of a KeyKeg and UniKeg are made from circular used material. The kegs provide significant sustainability benefits, including reduced CO2 emissions and water use, and there’s no need for harsh cleaning chemicals.
