Have you ever wondered why custom aluminum cans are produced at 330ml? We explain why these cans dating back to before World War II were produced in volume fractions of 330ml.

While smaller-sized cans such as 200ml and 250ml soft drinks have begun to appear, especially in recent years, we've seen the most popular cans be the 330ml can, as in the past. Except for big brands such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi, many brands of canned food still use the 330ml standard. So, have you ever wondered why there are 330ml cans instead of 300 or 350ml cans?

Today we're going to tell you why drinks like Coke come in 330ml cans. The weight of many products has been reduced with the surreptitious price hikes in our country, but the 330ml drink can still be seen. When we look at the history of these boxes, we see II. It appeared before World War II.

Why are beverage cans produced in 330ml?

As we get to the depths of the production of 330ml beverage tins, we encounter differences with the U.S. and other national units of measurement. In those years, the United States produced canned foods like beer and canned peas. These cans also have a volume of 12 ounces. When we look at the milliliter equivalent to 12 ounces, we see 355 milliliters. 355 ml; it is still used as a standard in the US. Since Europe and my country use liters instead of ounces as a unit of measurement, the soft drink cans produced are converted to a volume of 330 ml, which is equivalent to one-third of a liter rounded up. Europe.

Since countries like the US and UK use different units of measurement compared to the rest of the world, we often see fractional units of measurement. You can also take a look at what we wrote about 'Why do kettles usually make 1.7 liters?' or 'Why do water bottles make 19 liters and not 20 liters?'.

Today, boxes of different volumes are produced.

In the 2000s, when you wanted to buy a can of Coke, there weren't many options other than a 330ml can. Today, we see tin cans in different volumes. For example, Coca-Cola and Pepsi also sell 250ml cans in Turkey. 250ml cans, especially Red Bull energy drinks, are starting to take the world by storm and are growing in popularity. 250ml cans, which are expected to reduce the use of 330ml cans in the next few years, are starting to become a new choice for consumers because they are both sufficient and cheap.
