Canada’s Muskoka and Le Trou du Diable have opted for petainerKeg Linestar to aid its export business.

The manufacturer’s petainerKeg Linestar is a keg system designed to enhance the benefits of the one-way PET keg.

According to the company, it offers breweriesl the advantages of the petainerKeg with additional benefits such as increased resilience throughout the supply chain, lightweight, stackable, and ergonomically designed for handling.

Annemieke Hartman-Jemmett, Petainer’s group commercial director said: “We developed Linestar to provide breweries with a seamless transition from steel to PET kegs without the need for a bespoke filling system.

“It allows breweries to use spare capacity on existing steel keg lines and enables our customers to enter new markets thanks to its superior logistical performance.”

Isaac Tremblay, president and director of business development at Le Trou du Diable in Quebec, Canada, explained: “We chose the new Linestar because it looks great and is easy to use in terms of filling and handling.

“As we expand our business, we use Linestar to send our beer across Canada and to the USA, and export it to Europe more cost-effectively.”

Brian Eyers, supply chain manager of Muskoka Brewery, added: “We are focusing on expanding our market by exporting our draught beer beyond our local province.

“Petainer’s Linestar has provided us with an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for exporting our beer across Canada and into the USA.”
