Crown Food Europe launches new product for dry food market

Peelfit, a new proprietary metal can designed specifically for the dry food market, has been launched by Crown Food Europe.

Manufactured in the UK, Peelfit addresses demands for greater convenience, lightweighting and product protection in the sector.

The product is fully printable, provides sustainability benefits and utilises direct heat sealing technology to seal a peelable foil directly to a collapsed bead within the can body. For the last feature, customers then simply need to fill product through the base of the can and seam on a non-easy-open end without having to make changes to the filling line.

In terms of sustainability, the Peelfit container is 16% lighter than cans using conventional foil steam closures, due to its elimination of rigid steel rings. It reduces energy use by 32% compared to the conventional cans, and, as it’s metal, it offers 100% protection against oxygen, light, moisture and other contaminants.

Olivier Aubry, Business Development and Marketing Director for Crown Food Europe, says: “Peelfit is the result of extensive development work by Crown’s talented designers and engineers. Using technology to reduce the amount of metal used in Crown’s food containers while maintaining performance and functionality is a significant element of the company’s ongoing sustainability efforts. We look forward to bringing Peelfit to market during the fourth quarter of 2-16 with a major international food company.”
