Metal Packaging Europe (MPE) has produced a new video, ‘Keeping it fresh with: Why canned food is good for you and our planet’ that describes the benefits of food cans.

MPE report that we all know that fruit and vegetables are key to a healthy diet and that cans are the perfect way to store nutrients and have them available for a long time.

Canned fruits and vegetables are harvested at their peak of ripeness, when nutrient levels are at their highest and are canned in as little as four hours. Cans act as an extension of nature, ensuring harvests are naturally preserved, longer than any other packaging, thus reducing food waste.
