Welcome to our top beverage packagers list. This year, we are bringing you the top 25 beverage packagers, most of which are the large household names in the industry. Our top 25 beverage packagers list shows yet again that Coca-Cola is the beverage giant of today. The company has a reported $46.85 billion in revenue for 2013. A close second is Anheuser-Busch InBev with a reported $43.20 billion in revenue.
These two global giants recently released some interesting new packages and used unique platforms to launch them. Coca-Cola’s video introducing its new Friendly Twist Bottle recently went viral. The video depicted the first day of college and featured a Coca-Cola machine set up with the new packages inside. The kicker here is that the bottle cannot be opened without another bottle’s cap; it takes two people, using their caps together to open both bottles. We linked to this video in the Food and Beverage LinkedIn group – join today and check it out. Anheuser-Busch InBev also used video to introduce a new package. The company showed the world its new 16-ounce Bud Light Cool Twist reclosable aluminum bottle in a Super Bowl ad. The blue bottle is designed for convenience and on-the-go consumers as it is reclosable and the aluminum keeps the beer ice cold.
In this issue of Packaging Strategies, we take a look at the packaging robotics industry, learn about some of the latest products to be featured at PACK EXPO LV, sustainability innovation, and much more!
