Metal is the most recovered and most easily recycled material we currently have. Combined with its resilience, durability, and its numerous physical benefits, it is far and away our best choice for packaging a host of different products. Truth to tell, it always has been.
metal packaging is most used in the food industry, where cans and tins package everything from beer to corn to beef stew. In the food space, barriers are incredibly important, especially those that block light and aromas. Durability, safety, and convenience are all of great importance. Beverage cans tend to be made of aluminum, which is very light in weight and extremely malleable. Prepared foods, vegetables, and other comestible products are often packaged in steel cans, due to the material's strength and ability to withstand punishment. Cans offer a standard product experience for most consumers, it is a simple and well-known paradigm. We are now accustomed to getting many of our favourite products in cans and tins of all sorts, including baby formula, coffee, powder supplements, tobacco, dairy products, sweets, and all sorts of confections.
