The two-piece aluminium beverage cans, composed of a body and an end, possess a lightweight characteristic, whether they are empty or filled with liquid
World’s leading provider of innovative sustainable aluminium packaging Ball Corporation and Del Monte Foods have joined hands to pledge their commitment to sustainability aligned to the Government of India’s ambitious target of achieving net-zero emission by 2070 and reducing the carbon intensity of the economy by 45 per cent by 2030, With support from Ball, Del Monte Foods recently transitioned from using traditional three-piece tin cans for its beverage products to adopting infinitely recyclable two-piece aluminium beverage cans.
Del Monte Foods is a leader in packed food items including canned fruit juices. Mahesh Kanchan, CEO, of Del Monte Foods, said, “In recent years, the Indian beverage industry has undergone a remarkable transformation in packaging for juice. This change is much more than catching up with the trend; it mirrors the evolving preferences of the consumers and an increasing environmental consciousness.” In explaining the rationale behind the shift in beverage packaging, Kanchan mentioned that the two-piece aluminium beverage cans, composed of a body and an end, possess a lightweight characteristic, whether they are empty or filled with liquid. This attribute indirectly aids in enhancing the fuel efficiency of transport vehicles, subsequently reducing carbon emissions. Additionally, due to their lightweight nature, the manufacturing process requires fewer materials, leading to a decrease in carbon dioxide emissions.
