Meer wijn uit blik

De productie van wijn in blik begint ook in West-Europa aardig op gang te komen. De Britten hebben er weer een lijn bij. Daarmee denken ze antwoord te kunnen geven op de toenemende consumentenvraag naar duurzaam verpakkingsmateriaal. Voor blikwijn groeit die met 6 % per jaar, aldus Euromonitor. In de Verenigde Staten zeven maal zo snel. In ons land willen we nog niet massaal aan het blik. Zelfs ‘duurzame’ wijnproducenten nemen er nog afstand van. De vakwereld denkt dat de trend niet is tegen te houden. Thedrinksbusiness meldt:

 

 

The UK’s first wine canning line has gone live, after Greencroft Bottling, the sister company to Lanchester Wines, started operations at its plant in County Durham.

 

The contract wine packer has invested more than over £2 million in the equipment, which manufactures 200ml and 250ml slimline cans. It hopes to boost production from 100 million litres in 2018 to between 300 – 400 million litres by early 2020. The new line can fill around 17,000 cans per hour, the company said.

 

According to Euromonitor, canned wine consumption in Western Europe is growing at a rate of approx 6% year on year, and has been tipped as a major trend as consumers increasingly look for greener, more sustainable packaging. UK retailers including Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and The Coop have already dipped their toes in the canned wine market, with suppliers including Accolade, popular Provence rosé Mirabeau and Off-Piste Wines also hopping onto the growing trend.
Sales of canned wine sales are soaring in the US, rising 43% during 2017, driven by millennials seeking out smaller measures and on-the-go options, with Nielsen valuing the category at around $45 million.
