Tin cans are a classic among the “long-term packaging” options. For over 200 years food cans have been reliable companions when it comes to protecting food. Rugged tin plate with an elastic inner lining makes sure that the contents also remain intact when the can is exposed to impact. Applications are wide and varied: there is canned soup, canned stew, canned bread, canned cake, canned butter, canned meat, canned cheese and even canned hamburgers. Sealed air-tight the packaging turns into a “safe” for freshness and quality. This way food can be stored up to three years without suffering any quality losses – often even longer.
Proving particularly popular for out-of-home consumption are micro portions – served in so-called bowls. Most of them come with a convenient peel-off lid allowing the can also to be opened without a can opener.
