Beer in PET introduced in the Indian beer market

BERICAP's DoubleSeal SuperShorty® secures high quality of beer also in hot climates

Budenheim, (PresseBox) - Beer as an oxygen sensitive product challenges the PET bottle and the closure with respect to oxygen transmission.

Especially for the beer market, BERICAP has developed a closure in 'crown cork design', the DoubleSealTM SuperShorty® Crown O2S closure, which looks very similar to the traditional beer crown cork and it was the first 28mm closure fitting to the PCO 1881 neck. To secure the high quality of beer in PET bottles during the shelf life, BERICAP equipped the closure with an oxygen scavenger absorbing the oxygen in the headspace of the beer bottle.

The world market for beer filled in PET bottles and closed by plastic screw caps is steadily growing. Starting 2003 in Germany, several countries, mainly in Eastern Europe, have meanwhile introduced beer in PET bottles.

Outside Europe it was China starting in 2009 with beer in PET bottles using BERICAP DoubleSealTM SuperShorty® Crown O2 (oxygen scavenger).

Since longer time PET Packaging for beer in India was discussed.

Recently a beer brewer introduced in India the 1 ltr package PET Bottles for his beer and decided to use the BERICAP DoubleSealTM SuperShorty® Crown O2 - a special beer closure that recurs the high quality of beer in PET even in hot climates such as it is in India.

First bottles using BERICAP DoubleSealTM SuperShorty® Crown O2 are already available in the Indian market.


BERICAP is a globally acting manufacturer of plastic closures with 20 factories in 18 countries across the world, on-going projects in several countries of Asia and a network of licensees and partners to supply similar products made according to the same quality and service standards to its global customers; with a mould shop in Hungary and several satellite R&D offices in its main operations, BERICAP is particularly committed to development and innovation in plastic closures for its customers.
