Ball Corporation, one of the leader’s in the specialty aluminum beverage can and bottle market, has announced its newest can size – the 8-oz. "trim" can. The small, lightweight can is ideal for juices and other beverages for portion-conscious consumers, and is unbreakable, quick-chilling and 100 percent recyclable.
The 8-oz. trim can, which is a shorter version of Ball's 8.4-oz. trim can, has a 202 can body diameter and a 200 diameter end. Ball's 8-oz. trim can is designed to run on existing filling lines and requires no line modifications by customers.
The trim 8-oz. package meets the newly recommended guidelines from the USDA that specify eight ounces as the maximum serving size for beverages sold in schools. Ball will also continue to make its popular 8.4-oz. size.
