Carlsberg trials fiber beer containers | NBWA: America's Beer and Beverage Distributors

Carlsberg will conduct its biggest trial of recyclable fiber beer bottles across Europe. The bottles are wood-based fiber shells and a plant-based PEF polymer lining. Customers will sample eight thousand bottles in eight markets across the continent, including the UK, France and Poland. Carlsberg says the bottles retain the same "taste and fizziness" as glass bottles and could keep the beer colder for longer. The bottles are bio-based apart from the cap, and there are plans for a sustainable plastic cap that is expected to be delivered in 2023.
