Welcome to NAMPA

Today's families focus on serving nutritious, safe and economical foods and beverages which naturally leads them to metal cans. The metal can has made nutritious, high quality, shelf-stable food available everywhere for decades. Through continuous innovation, canned foods have changed the way food is produced, preserved, and consumed around the world. Today, more than 1,500 different varieties of food are packed in cans, making seasonal foods available globally year round.


Metal cans are an essential packaging technology that has helped create the world's safest food supply, without sacrificing food quality or nutrition. Cans routinely deliver the highest level of performance when it comes to protecting food quality and nutrition.
