The needs of craft brewers are unique, but the passion is always the same. To ensure top quality Loughran Family Malt from Ireland, supply craft brewers with the best possible ingredients to make amazing beers. To extend the range of products needed to sell the best beer, Loughran Family Malt revealed the partnership with Lightweight Containers, the producer of one-way kegs, KeyKeg and UniKeg.
Managing Director James Loughran is the 6th generation Loughran to farm at Clermont Farm in Haggardstown, Dundalk in Ireland. He explains: "With my passion for sustainable craft brewing, it is a logical step to start working with the kegs of Lightweight Containers. Every day we receive more demand for environmentally friendly packaging, now we have a proper solution for the market.
KeyKeg and UniKeg are the only kegs that are designed with circularity in mind, the griprings and base cups are made of 100% recycled materials. Besides the environmental advantages of our partnership with Lightweight Containers, we believe the use of KeyKeg is adding important value to the business of our customers. KeyKegs are created with a double wall which ensures that the keg is safe throughout the whole supply chain with a 'bag-in-keg technology' that protects the precious cargo, you as a brand owner have created, against external influences such as Oxygen pick up and CO2 loss ensuring the product arrives fresh every time.
KeyKegs are superefficient for transport, due to the progressive design of the gripring, all kegs link together improving pallet stability and excellent stack ability, making KeyKeg the preferred kegs for domestic and global market."
Anita Veenendaal (CEO Lightweight Containers): "We are proud to work together with the Loughran Family in Ireland. We are always searching for possibilities to add value to the business of our customers and to the customers of our customers. Together we can make it as easy as possible for the customers to grow their businesses."More information
