The new WaveGrip cardboard carrier from Berry Global has been selected by Oslo-based Amundsen Brewery, the second-largest craft brewery in Norway to provide a ring carrier solution for its range of beer cans.

The WaveGrip carrier has been developed in line with Berry Global’s Impact 2025 sustainability strategy, which aims to work with customers to help meet and exceed their sustainability goals. Each carrier weighs just 7.95 gram for a standard six-pack and is recyclable in most paper and board waste collection streams. Despite its light weight, it is strong and easy to use, while delivering pack retention.

“Customers are becoming more vocal and involved in the sustainability discussion. They have strong opinions and as a producer, we have to listen to these opinions,” explained Geoffrey Jansen van Vuuren, chief executive officer Amundsen Brewery.

“Sustainability and recyclability were, therefore, key factors when we were looking for our new ring carrier and WaveGrip offered the perfect solution,” he adds.

WaveGrip carrier’s patent-pending design

The WaveGrip carrier features a unique, patent-pending design that means it does not require folding or manipulation during application. This allows continuous running at high speeds, meeting both the performance and production needs of the most demanding canning lines.

The white fully coated topside offers high-quality printability in up to 10 colours, allowing brand messages and promotions to be easily included for enhanced shelf impact. In addition, the naturally brown reverse opens up to offer a multitude of further design possibilities and enable direct communication with customers.

Amundsen offers eight core beers year-round and produces between 50-80 seasonal specials a year. The brewery exports to 20 different countries with Sweden and the United Kingdom being its biggest markets.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
