Hi All,

I am currently hunting for beverage can companies that can provide sleek 355ml cans for my product. I have been calling and emailing multiple companies like Ball, Crown Cork, and Rexam with no response on minimum order quotes. Do you guys have any recommendations on how to get quotes from can companies for a startup? Is it normal that they take sooo long to reply to a simple quote question. Any other can companies that you guys recommend?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

You are contacting companies who work with beverage canners who work with millions of cans, not hundreds or thousands.

But there must be someone out there making small runs, because small breweries are able to produce small runs of their product in cans versus kegs. There are even travelling canning operations that come right to the breweries, can their beer, and then move on to the next one. You might want to contact one of them and see if they can hook you up with some cans and maybe even can your product for you.
