A new 8-oz "trim" can from Ball Corp. meets the newly recommended guidelines from the USDA that specify 8 oz as the maximum serving size for beverages sold in schools. The new small, lightweight can is suitable for juices and other beverages for portion-conscious consumers, and is quick-chilling and recyclable.
The 8-oz trim can, which is a shorter version of Ball's 8.4-oz trim can, has a 202 can body diameter and a 200 diameter end. Ball's 8-oz trim can is designed to run on existing filling lines and requires no line modifications by customers. Ball will also continue to make its popular 8.4-oz size.
"We are committed to the North American beverage market and to meeting the growing demand for smaller, portion-control products," says Robert Miles, vp, sales, for Ball's metal beverage packaging division, Americas. "Ball's 8-oz trim can is a sustainable solution for customers looking to stand out in the marketplace and tap into incremental distribution channels."
