As an innovation-driven company, we keep developing. In addition to the new production facility in Spain, we are proud to introduce the UniKeg A which is now available for the global market.

Introduction of UniKeg A to global market

The UniKeg range of products is already available with Sankey-D and Sankey-S fittings. As innovation is continuous, we are adding the A-fitting, also known as German Slider, to the range. The range is compatible with existing universal coupling systems, so the kegs can be used anywhere in the world without additional costs.

Following an extensive period of design, prototyping, trials and feedback, the UniKeg A-Type is now in full production at our Spanish production site. Building on the success of the existing portfolio range, KeyKeg and UniKeg S&D, brand owners are now able to add UniKeg A to their packaging mix and to source keg products optimising their procurement and administration costs in the process.

We asked John Van Veen, R&D, for they key points of difference when comparing UniKeg A with the products currently available in market. John: "First and foremost, our double wall technology ensures that safety remains guaranteed, in hot countries it is fit for purpose as a single wall keg may not deliver to the brand owner's requirements. Additionally, its circular credentials - 63% of the keg can be made from circular materials [re-used] which makes the UniKeg A a leader in its category. Last but not least, after 14 years of ground-breaking design, the octagonal design of the handgrip and base cup made out of 100% reused material continues to deliver a robust performance in supply chain logistics."

Annemieke Hartman - Jemmett, Chief Commercial Officer said: "Now that we are able to offer the UniKeg A to the global market we are able to support producers of Beer, Wine, Kombucha, Coffee and other beverages with a product that already complies with the re-used materials content requirements; +30% of the UniKeg is made out of re-used materials, ensuring that as a brand owner you are not presented with a tax levy on packaging following the introduction of new legislation in the coming years - offering you a suitable solution on price, quality and sustainability".
