Industries


A growing number of industries prefer aluminum foil containers over any other packaging product:

Retailers

Aluminum foil containers are perfect for take-home and delivery meals. Designed with a leak-proof metal wall, they will not absorb moisture or grease, promoting freshness, increasing shelf life, and maintaining flavor. Then there is the added convenience – foil containers are rigid enough to transport and stack easily.

Foodservice and Baking

Aluminum foil containers are not affected by temperature extremes. You can cook, freeze, transport, and serve food all in a single convenient package. Aluminum’s conductivity accelerates both baking and freezing and contributes to faster and better product reconstitution than any other packaging material. Its tri-ovenability lets you defrost or reheat in the microwave, heat or broil in the oven, and serve and refreeze leftovers.

Packer Processors

Cost-effective aluminum foil containers are available in one ounce to twenty pound capacities and can be customized to fit almost any manufacturer’s dispensing and filling machines. Designed to carry food products safely through all stages of manufacturing and distribution, foil containers provide an excellent hygienic barrier that prohibits bacterial growth.

Packaging Engineers

Aluminum packaging adapts easily to manufacturing specifications and can be made to suit the specific needs of the user in terms of size, shape, gauge, rim styles, lid closures, special coatings, decorative colors and designs, or multi-compartments. Surface embossing also adds a customized look and enhances product appeal.
