US aluminum can industry struggles to keep up
Argusmedia - US beverage producers using aluminum cans are having difficulties keeping their products on supermarket shelves following an unprecedented spike in at-home consumption of soft drinks and alcohol.
Because fewer Americans are consuming soft drinks and beer at restaurant and bars because of gathering restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic, more are taking beverages home from grocery and liquor stores in aluminum cans, catching the supply chain by surprise.
"Due to the current situation, some of our products may be in limited supply," Coca Cola's official Twitter account replied to dozens of inquiries from consumers searching for missing soft drink products. "We're working hard to get them in stores."
