Our state-of-the art facility is SALSA (Safe & Local Supplier) accredited and we offer enhanced packaging solutions for both beer and spirituous beverages across a wide range of different sizes and shapes of can, bottle and keg.
As craft and micro brewers ourselves, we understand the importance of looking after the beverage as if it were our own and the risk you take when you hand it over to a packager.
