[greenyes] FW: Beer packing in PET bottles finally takes off in China
We'd be interested in comments on this.....Considering the price difference
for PET in beer vs glass I'm surprised that it has taken off.  Does anyone
else have information on the market share of PET beer bottles.  The impact

being  conducted for a long time now, have finally paid  dividends. China,
has finally replaced glass bottles for  beer with a new PET packaging. Read
