    BRO!!!! We used to bottle REDLINE in a thick walled aluminum can. It was awesom eto say the least. Then the prices started going up but we hung in there even re-newing our contract with the manufacturer. The AB decided to come out with their 16oz Aluminum bottles and pretty much just blew us out of the water. They were willing to pay slightly more per unit than us so who do you think got put in the front of the line? At any rate, after out of stocks twice we had to make a decision to go to plastic bottles. It really sucks but the World Market, especially China, is eating up resources and if you want a piece of them you have to PAY!!!!!!
    Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

    Greg if the price goes up by 20%, will the retail price of can soda pop go up by 20% as well? How sensitive is price of materials to retail price increases? Tks

    Not necessarily. After all you still have a HUGE profit margin on single serve 20oz drinks. Those things are cash cows.
    Furthermore, the BIG GUYS, Coke, Pepsi, DR Pepper, COTT etc buy aluminum on the futures market so they have some cushion a few months down the road. However, it will end and prices could go up somewhat but that may be offset by Pepsico and Coke droppoing their price on the syrup to their bottlers.

    In the end I do not know but I suspect there will be a slight tick upward to offset the cost.

    Now keep in mind that TTB does not buy near the volume of cans/aluminum that Pepsi does( I saw a stat last night saying that there are over 35mm cans of Pepsi sold each day!) so Pepsi may incur a very small increase of say 1-1.5 cents per unit. Possibly less than that.

    I know Greg... I used to have SP in a glass bottle but it got too expensive. I decided to go to the 16 ounce can and soon will have an 8 ounce as well.

    you could go ahead and buy them and ship them to the chick in MI. but then again one of them wanted 4 trailer loads of cubes 500 wouldn't make much of a dent in that.
    If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.

    The container is but one of many things you pay for when you buy a beverage.

    But who knows what cost more: The soda in the can or the can(package) holding the soda? Of course keeping all things equal and leaving out all the things I mentioned above.
