Budějovický Budvar has put into operation a new line for bottling beer into cans. It can fill up to 50,000 units per hour. The investment costs amounted to approximately CZK 300m.

The line is equipped with analytical equipment to ensure the flawless quality of beer and to reduce the laboriousness of inspection, which normally requires the involvement of a laboratory. With the line, the brewery is responding to growing demand and also to the cooperation with the Mattoni 1873 group, with which it will produce non-alcoholic flavoured beer.

Strategy and business development manager Robert Chrt added that the line uses paper packaging instead of LDPE film for group-packed cans. This saves the brewery 85 tonnes of plastic per year. The line was technically provided by Krones.
