A £7 million investment in packaging equipment at Wellpark Brewery sees Tennent’s well on its way to eradicating single use plastic from consumer packaging. The investment, will remove 150 tonnes of plastic from Tennent’s Lager can packs by 2022, including more than 100 million plastic (hi- and mid-cone) rings.
Work at the famous Wellpark Brewery in Glasgow has commenced and is expected to complete in spring 2021, when the brewer will be able to produce up to 120,000 cans per hour, packaged in fully recyclable cardboard. Made possible by a multi-million-pound investment in plant machinery, the new packaging area will remove all plastic packaging from Tennent’s Lager can formats for the first time in more than 40 years.
