Coca-Cola Shift from Steel to Aluminium

South Africa’s sole beverage can manufacturer, Bevcan, will now supply Coca-Cola with aluminium-bodied cans instead of tin-plated steel ones.

The contract ensures aluminium beverage cans are sold for the next five years.

“The new aluminium can is in line with best global practice and trends in packaging. It is also light and easy-to-carry and will appeal to today’s environmental conscious consumer”, said Coca-Cola Southern Africa president Therese Gearhart.

Gauteng sees the first locally produced cans later this year.
