On Tuesday the Estonian beverages maker Saku Õlletehas put into operation a new canning line that cost two million euros and allows the company to produce more than half a million cans of beer a day.
Launching the line is part of Saku's investment programme for this year, the company said.
CEO Veli Pekka Tennila said the maximum capacity of the new line is 200 million cans a year, which exceeds the volume of the Estonian market.
"The new filling line enables us to can in Estonia all the output for the Estonian and export markets and I'm pleased to say that we hope to double our exports next year," Tennila said.
Saku Õlletehas has invested a total of 70 million kroons (EUR 4.47 mln) in new brewing equipment and technologies this year. It installed a crystal filtering system in the first phase of investment in April.
