There is a global need to manage food waste.
Steel packaging’s unique preservation qualities play an important part in preventing food waste at all stages in the supply chain
- Time spent between harvesting, transport & canning is generally less than 3 hours, minimising product loss at processing
- Misshapen or “ugly” food can be canned and processed as normal, minimising product loss at retail
- Steel’s strength and 100% barrier against light, water and air protects food, minimising product loss during all transport and storage
- Portion sized packaging allows consumers to buy the precise quantity needed, minimising product loss at consumption
No other packaging material equals steel’s strength, total barrier properties or shelf life.
As a result, food packed in steel stays fresh for longer, retains its flavour and is less likely to be damaged, spoiled, or unnecessarily wasted.
