Carlsberg will be the first to use glue to replace plastic pack rings.
Carlsberg will be the first to use glue to replace plastic pack rings.

Carlsberg will be the first in the industry to cut the pack rings in a move. The Danish brewer is to use glue to replace the plastic wrapping that holds together its six-packs of cans, reducing the amount of plastic used by up to 76%.

According to Carlsberg, the new packaging will reduce plastic waste by over 1,200 tons per year, which is equivalent to 60 million plastic bags. Carlsberg Group CEO Cees’t Hart said in a statement that it was "an important day" for the business.

Cans in four, or six, or eight-can packs are held together by tiny blobs of strong glue, which has been designed to withstand a range of temperatures including storage, transportation and then refrigeration in the home.

Carlsberg describes the new Snap Pack as a "world first for the beer industry." The cans audibly snap when pulled apart, and the glue can also be recycled along with the aluminium can.

Plastic pack rings are connected plastic rings used to hold together multi-packs of canned drinks, which has been a standard packaging device for more than 50 years.
