Refresco Iberia has installed a new line for cans at its production plant in Marcilla, in the north of Spain. The canning line is producing carbonated soft drinks and still drinks, ranging from fruit and sports drinks to ice teas in 33cl cans. The installation marks an important extension of Refresco Iberia’s product-portfolio, which until now consisted of carton and PET.

”With the installation of the canning line, we are now in Iberia able to better respond to our customers’ needs and to offer a total product-portfolio, in line with the Refresco strategy. We explicitly chose to install the canning line at our production location in Marcilla because of its strategic location to supply international customers of the European Refresco group,” explains Dominique Luna, managing director of Refresco Iberia.

Cans will account for about 5% of Refresco Iberia’s volume production this year but is expected to increase to 15% next year and to then reach 30%, in line with the Refresco Iberia’s objective to achieve a better diversification in formats between carton, PET and cans.

Refreso Iberia is part of Netherlands-based Refresco, which is one of the largest producers of fruit juices and soft drinks in Europe. The group had a turnover of Eur1.14b in 2009 and employed about 2,300 people.
