Heineken has redesigned cans for its namesake beer brand in the US.

Heineken said today (31 January) that its new 6oz and 12oz cans will launch in the US in February. A 24oz can will launch this summer.

The new can has been designed to emphasise Heineken's premium credentials on a tough mainstream beer market in the US. "The new design stands out better on shelf, in the cold box and on display," said the brewer's vice president of marketing, Filip Wouters.

He said that the group has used new ink technology that enables Heineken's logo to stand out from the can, as if embossed.

"We will support this new can with several million dollars of dedicated above the line support to secure our innovative leadership position in the import can segment," Wouters added.
