The Indie Drinks Can Advice Service site is managed by the Can Makers, the trade body representing the UK companies responsible for the manufacture of beverage cans. The site is also affiliated with the Indie Beer Can Festival, launched in 2014.

Members of the Can Makers work together specifically to promote the benefits of the beverage can and aid communication between the industry and its customers: brewers and soft drinks manufacturers, retailers, the packaging industry, media and consumers.

Established in 1981, the Can Makers was the first organisation in Europe formed to promote drink cans. It is part of a European network set up under the auspices of Metal Packaging Europe, which includes similar country organisations across Europe.
