Ardagh Group Launches New Nitro Slim Can
Packaging solutions specialist Ardagh Group has announced the new Nitro slim can.
The Nitro can’s main feature is a widget, which is a nitrogen-filled, in-can capsule neatly replicating the infusion process of on-tap coffee. Upon can opening, the widget is activated, releasing nitrogen into the beverage and creating a cascading pour and foamy head within the glass, mug, or jug.
The widget device is fixed to the bottom of the can, ensuring overall filling efficiency. In addition, because of the treatment process applied to the nitro coffee, the beverage is shelf stable.
Adriana Escobar beverage product manager at Ardagh’s metal division said: “The new Nitro can allows one to indulge in the quality, taste and texture of cold brew coffee, something previously exclusive to high-end coffee bars and which can now be enjoyed while relaxing or celebrating at home.
“On the consumer front, this can assists brands in easily replicating the thick and foamy crema that nitro cold brew coffee lovers desire. Nitro slim can offers the perfect format and serving size expected from nitro coffee consumers.
“From the operations side, Ardagh has an extensive product experience with nitro beverages and supports integration of this technology into the filling process to both established players and start-ups looking to tap into this trending market.”
Available in 250ml aluminium slim, the Nitro can is filled at widget compatible filling lines and offers brands optimum product protection.
