It might be the silly season here in the UK, aka the slow news season, as it’s known in the US, but even though traditionally the dog days of summer are renowned for being a bit empty of other than frivolous news, we’ve still managed to gather enough stories about what’s occurring in the world of metal packaging to fill the issue.

We love the New Year, and it’s not just the parties and champagne, we can be serious too.
