Sustainability of Metal Packaging
Our primary materials, steel, aluminium and tin are inherently sustainable. These metals, once formed, enter the infinite cycle of reuse, where it gets recycled and reused over and over. Metal has some of the highest recycling rates globally, due to its well-established infrastructure, and high level of awareness among consumers.
As a packaging material, it provides a hardy and resilient layer of protection for the end user, and in doing so, also greatly reduces food wastage and food spoilage. Through the retorting process, cans can help to preserve and greatly improve the shelf life of various foods, without the need for preservatives or freezing.
