Plastic Keg with Cellular Connection

A Word From Our Plastic Keg Founder

Having worked with some of the world’s leading breweries for decades, I know that recent years have negatively affected our industry beyond comprehension. Enforced downtime has, however, given product teams time to systematically review the efficiency of legacy logistics and standard distribution strategies. In the face of adversity, these challenging times have proven to be a catalyst for the rapid adoption of smart keg security and management systems. In partnership with leading worldwide and domestic beer brands, our technology infrastructure and recyclable keg body offers future-focussed and environmentally-minded beer producers total control of the beer that they sell, and a unique and positive way to dispose of older keg stock over time. From factory gate to point-of-sale, it is now possible to monitor transport logistics, location, product freshness, temperature and container availability, all in real time. By adopting i-Keg solutions, legacy problems relating to transport, management and quality control can finally be a thing of the past. We look forward to meeting you, and wish you and your teams a great year ahead.

Plastic Keg Quality Control and Improving Return on Investment

Aimed at producers of all sizes, a significant percentage of brewers do not track their beer kegs and casks. Refill cycle times are compromised because of a lack of an effective and affordable monitoring solution. Now with i-Keg or our retrofittable tag solution, brewers can monitor each keg throughout the process from factory gate to refill, providing a secure track and trace system with industry compliant product traceability. We predict a return of investment of 400% in year one with a tenfold return come year three.

Our range of kegs (Patent Number GB2452599) have been comprehensively tested and comply fully with UK and European industry standards. The i-Keg offers a fully returnable and trackable plastic keg with a built-in keg management system, offering huge benefits when compared to traditional stainless steel kegs. With a lower impact on noise pollution, less weight, increased payloads, lower fuel costs and zero theft value, we offer technology of the future to protect investments and maintain the highest of standards. Find out more through our site and meet our team below.

As a sustainable product, focussed on delivering widespread benefits for the environment, we take our responsibilities seriously. The plastics used in the keg can be recovered by mechanical recycling or by incineration with energy recovery. The outer shells of our kegs are manufactured to be fully recyclable, meaning old shells can be recycled to form new shells, or as recycled material within another manufacturing process. The inside of our keg, the container, is manufactured with virgin plastic, as adding recycled plastic into that mix exacerbates carbonation loss due to structural imperfections in the plastic, an inevitability when mixing non-homogenous materials together. As a company with an ethos based around positive climate change, we will always strive to maximise efficiency, reduce noise pollution and reduce waste, to always ensure we meet and exceed our environmental objectives.

Meet the i-Keg Plastics Team

As a team we are passionate about our products, the brand and our ethos to reach a new milestone in the drinks and beverage industry. The plastic keg and trackable tag is not a new concept, nor one which has been quick or easy to deliver. It is a solution which has taken nearly a decade of development, rigorously testing various polymers, production techniques and refining the specifications. In that time, we have built a team around us, of investors and shareholders, of people who bring experience and knowledge, and those who share our passion to make a difference, to the environment, to local communities and to the brewer.
