Carlsberg beer cans are to be stuck together with glue as it becomes one of the first brewers to abandon plastic rings.
The Danish firm said the move, which has been heralded as a world-first, to attach its multi-packs with adhesive will reduce the use of plastic to package products by 75 per cent.
After a three-year development process, Carlsberg insists the dots of glue bonding its new "Snap Packs" are strong enough to withstand journeys from shelves to homes, yet sufficiently brittle to break when twisted.
The eco-friendly packaging innovation will be debuted in the UK, where 30 per cent of Carlsberg's beer output is drunk every year.

Since I started working with Jaimie Meisner, early 2017, she has been very knowledgeable, proactive, and a pleasure to deal with. She is very responsive to our needs, and changing parameters. If she is out of the office, there is a ready back up or she makes time to respond directly. She did a very good job assessing our culture and understanding our environment before she searched for candidates. To date, she has helped us fill the following roles:
Manager, Food Safety & QA (US and Canada)
Plant Supervisor (US)
Director, Product Development (Canada)
Maintenance Mechanic (US)
Regional Sales Manager (US)
As well as 2 other senior roles that we put on hold (General Manager, North America; Director, Procurement).
It has been a successful partnership to date, and I expect/hope to have Jamie as my go to recruiter for many years to come.
