Benefits of Metal Packaging

The metal can has made nutritious, high quality, shelf-stable food available to people around the world for more than 200 years. Epoxy can coatings used in the canning process are an essential enabling technology that provides consumers with safe food and beverage packaging. Through continuous innovation, canning has changed the way food is produced, preserved, and consumed worldwide. Today, more than 1,500 different varieties of food are packed in metal cans, making seasonal foods available globally year round. Thanks to the superior performance attributes of cans with epoxy resin coatings, consumers can have the utmost confidence in the canned foods and beverages they enjoy.
