Over recent years the UK has seen a boom in demand for Artisan food and drink products. This means that small food and drink manufacturers have seen a growth in their profit margins of around 6% each year.

This boom in interest from consumers stems from them becoming more willing to pay a premium price for bespoke drink products that they view as having a higher quality and value than more generic mass-produced drinks on the market.

This shift in consumer preferences has allowed small drinks manufacturers that produce short-run artisan drinks to provide a higher price for their drinks than much larger drink producers.

Maturing sophisticated tastes

Over the last decade, it seems that British drink consumers have developed more sophisticated tastes than they had 10 or 15 years ago. This has resulted in a rise in demand for drinks from small artisan and micro-producers across the UK.

Artisan food and drink products are two of the fastest-growing areas in the luxury marketplace. These days more consumers are willing to pay a higher price for artisan niche drinks such as craft beers, trendy canned gin and tonic mixes, and canned health drinks from smaller manufacturers that are perceived to offer more than a mass-market brand.

For smaller artisan drink producers that use ethically sourced and sustainable drink ingredients, it can be a huge selling point to include this information on their drink can labelling. This will appeal to the growing consumer demand for more mindful drink products.

David Berryman Ltd contract canning services

If you are planning to be a small artisan drink producer, one of the main issues faced by small and micro-producers is managing to get their drinks canned in a cost-effective way that won't break their limited budget.

This is where David Berryman Ltd. comes in. We offer small drink producers a viable option with our contract canning services that cater to smaller run numbers. Our micro-canning services offer a much smaller run size than you could obtain from a larger contract canning provider that is used to producing drinks for the mass-market drinks sellers.

Most large contract canning businesses would refuse to help a small artisan drinks manufacturer get their drinks canned because it wouldn't be in their interests to produce small runs as it can be costly for them to set up and run.

But with David Berryman Ltd. this is not the case! So if you have a desire to produce an amazing cold brew coffee with a twist, a new flavour carbonated drink, a nutrient-packed health drink, a trendy tea in a can, craft beer or refreshing alcoholic cocktail mix, with our contract canning services we are best placed to help make your dream a reality.

Why choose aluminium drink canning?

There is no doubt that aluminium drink cans have become one of the most popular choices for new drink producers in the past decade. Cans are lightweight and infinitely recyclable and, with the ability to create eye-catching sleeves, is a very cost-effective way to go for a new artisan drink producer.

There are lots of benefits to choosing contract canning with us. These include:

· Drink quality and longevity: Aluminium drink cans are impenetrable to light, therefore they help to maintain the quality of your drink

· Drink cans are sealed: Cans are completely airtight and prevent oxygen from entering your drink improving the shelf life and longevity of your drink

· Better tasting drink: Cans have thin skins so they cool down much quicker than glass or plastic giving you a tasty chilled drink much quicker

· Saving the environment: Aluminium drink cans are the most environmentally friendly way to deliver a drink as the cans are recyclable and can be melted down and reused over again many thousands of times

· Unleash your creativity: Using cans can give you amazing branding opportunities with a greater scope than a traditional glass bottle label
