Food packaging

Tin can – so simple and so necessary!

Safe food storage in metal containers was first introduced in France at the beginning of the 19th century, when Napoleon Bonaparte offered a prize to anyone who could preserve food for his army. Nicholas Appert discovered that food stored in tin cans and sterilized by cooking can be preserved for a longer period of time. Thus began the use of tin cans in the preservation and storage of food. Tin cans are still used today as one of the healthiest ways of preserving food. The imperative of every food producer is to preserve the freshness, quality, nutritional value, good organoleptic properties and safety of every product placed on the market. Metal packaging is characterised by a number of good qualities, it prevents the leakage of liquid or gaseous components, microorganisms or light and thanks to its excellent heat conduction, it is suitable for foods which are conserved by pasteurisation and sterilisation.
