Welcome to the Can Makers
Infinite possibilities, infinitely recycled
The Can Makers is the trade body representing drinks can manufacturers in the UK. Members work together to promote the benefits of the drinks can and aid communications between the industry and its customers: the brewers and soft drinks manufacturers and the retailers, as well as the packaging industry, the media and consumers.
The Can Makers was the first organisation in Europe formed to promote drink cans, and is part of the Metal Packaging Manufacturers Association (MPMA), which represents the UK metal packaging industry.
The Can Makers and MPMA form part of a European network set up under Metal Packaging Europe (MPE), which includes similar organisations across Europe.
