Sustainable Food Packaging

One of the reasons food marketers want to embrace sustainability is because consumers increasingly are making greener choices. People are reading more about the environment and want to be part of the solution instead of the problem. The food packaging industry is increasingly embracing corporate social responsibility by developing more sustainable products and packaging.

Materials that can be recycled, such as tinplate and aluminium, have gained favour among food packagers. Both materials can be used over and over and are flexible enough to fit a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Big packages communicate different values than small packages, just as uncommon shapes are perceived as special to consumers, compared with common shapes.

Tinplate and aluminium are much more reliable than plastic bags when it comes to protecting the product in the shipping process. Extending shelf life as much as possible is an important factor in retailing and sustainability planning. Sustainability can be measured in many ways, including quality. Both aluminium and tinplate can be recycled endlessly without any loss of quality.

Packaging has become a form of branding in the modern consumer world. Therefore, it must be eye-catching enough to stand out in a retail setting and meet the requirements for food safety and shelf life.

Our tinplate and aluminium tins feature a food safety lacquer making them perfectly suitable for food. To view our range of tins suitable for food, follow the link - https://tinwaredirect.com/search?type=article%2Cpage%2Cproduct&q=lacquer*
