SUSTAINABILITY

Why Metal Cans?

Metal food cans are 100% recyclable without loss of strength or quality. They have the highest recycling rate of any food package in addition to being efficient resource-savers since there is no need for refrigeration or freezing. Cans also help to minimize food waste compared to fresh foods, while still delivering nutrition and quality.
