1959

Cans

Ever the entrepreneurs, 1959 saw Ben Shaws being the first company in Europe to can soft drinks. Ben Shaws was extremely proud of this achievement and proudly advertised in the local Huddersfield paper. The introduction of cans led to the wider distribution of Ben Shaws beyond Yorkshire to the rest of the UK. (Photo: 1970 The Brockholes Factory)
