Improve distribution logistics

Transport more beverages per truckload with KeyKeg than with traditional Kegs. Beverage distributors could either save up to 65% on transport costs or distribute up to 25-30% more beverages per load. KeyKeg also eliminates expensive return processes associated with traditional Kegs for beverage distribution. Hospitality customers can flatten empty Kegs too, in preparation for local recycling initiatives, which makes the most of precious storage space.

KeyKeg efficiency for beverage distributors

Bars, hotels, restaurants, pubs, cafés and events demand clean, efficient beverage-packaging, which enables them to offer a wider range of longer-lasting beverages on tap. Beverage distributors recognise that hospitality needs to take advantage of today’s drinking trends. KeyKeg therefore offers them a point-of-difference Keg for domestic and export markets that responds to a broad range of beverage-packaging requirements.

Dispense without CO2

Dispensing beverages using air is a cleaner, greener, easier way to dispense, and it’s less expensive than using CO2, N2 or mixed gas. Because KeyKeg keeps beverages and dispense gas apart, hospitality can dispense almost to the last drop without using any gas. With KeyKeg, beverage distributors can avoid the problems their customers face during CO2 shortages or periods of gas-price instability.
