Systems with automatic canning machines are generally used by large breweries or makers of carbonated soft drinks or energy drinks. The new versatile models allow to explore new horizons while expanding production. Here are two of the latest trends in cans to be followed.
In one way or another, companies need to adapt their production to the latest consumer trends. It is a harsh reality of the market, and there’s no escape.
The latest trends are leaning towards a preference for cans for classic soft drinks, as well as for other less likely products, including wine and cocktails.
Studies have shown that this format’s strengths lie in its affordability and convenience. It’s perfect for special occasions, like boat trips, picnics with friends, and music festivals.
Does this sound like the perfect excuse to add an automatic canning machine to your line, or to replace the one you already have? We think so. Keep reading to find out why.
A canning machine for wine
If you’re a wine producer and want to win over consumers, a canning machine for your wines will certainly be a good purchase.
In fact, the recent trend of canned wine is one that some consumers have refused to accept (especially in Italy, one of the world’s main wine producers), but it’s slowly gaining ground, especially in the United States.
The global trend of moderate drinking is taking hold, and this has led to an increase in the sale of 250 ml cans of wine rather than 750 ml bottles.
This wine format’s positive trend is closely linked to the demand for product functionality and sustainability on the part of younger consumers.
Pre-mixed cocktails: a new challenge for canning machines
A little something extra for the HO.RE.CA. sector… a new type of customer for your portfolio. Choose an automatic canning machine that’s capable of perfectly handling any type of beverage.
Popular also in sachet alternatives, ready-to-drink cocktails are becoming increasingly popular all over the world. Perfectly mixed Negroni, Mojito, and Moscow mule cocktails, ideal for a last-minute aperitif.
In order to ensure that the product tastes as fresh as can be, cans are definitely the best option, as they eliminate perishability issues.
These are very popular in the HO.RE.CA. sector, especially hotels that want to pamper their guests by offering an in-suite minibar with an ever greater selection.
