Cans

Also known as Tins, Tin cans, Empty cans, Food cans, Food tins, Metal cans, Metal tins, Ring-pull cans, Ring-pull tins and 3 piece cans.

We are now supplying cans to the smaller food manufacturers, specialist food producers and the home canning market. Our best selling cans are the 73mm x 110mm and the 99mm x 119mm (diameter x height) varieties.

We recommend white lacquer internally as it is suitable for soup, vegetables, baked beans, meat, fish, dairy, snack food and pet food. All cans are suitable for retortable foods, and the processes of pasteurisation and sterilisation.

Typically, the empty cans are supplied with the Easy Open End seamed to the can body, with the bottom end loose. The cans are ready to be filled, processed, then closed by a seaming machine.

With so many options available, please contact us to discuss more.
