About Us


Parliament International Limited was established in 1989. Having always been based in and around North London, initially we supplied aluminium safety-feature easy-open ends to the European market.

Over the years, our product range has expanded to a wide variety of can components and packaging items. Alongside our product range, our contact list has steadily grown to a worldwide network of commercial partners and over 30 years later we still retain strong relations with our partners looking positively to the future.

In recent years, we have received more enquires for empty metal cans or unfilled cans. We now actively supply these to the specialist food and the home canning market.


Whilst it’s important to maintain and grow our traditional business, we also look to new markets, new & innovative products and new commercial partners. We welcome interesting opportunities and approaches. Our team is eager to find new markets and will devote time to ensure it is a success.
