KHS Filling and Packaging and Belgium beverage producer, Brouwerij Martens, made bottles with design flexibility for the 2018 World Cup using KHS’s direct print system. Martens brewery in Belgium worked with a French supermarket chain to place specially designed bottles on shelves before the first World Cup game.
