The day-to-day reality and modern lifestyle have made consumers more demanding and more selective when it comes to the products they choose to consume. Their high expectations regarding the quality and physical appearance of a product have led major food industries to choose tinplate as their products' packaging material.
By its nature, tinplate is an absolutely environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable material.
Packaging in tinplate containers is harmless and guarantees that foods and beverages are hygienically and safely packaged, without preservatives or chemical additives. Further, tinplate is the packaging of choice of many well-known and award-winning designers, who find it as the most suitable material to express their creativity and inspiration.
Thanks to its special properties, a tinplate packaging will ensure that the quality of foods will be preserved, including their freshness, flavour and aroma.
The features and properties of tinplate will ensure that even the most sensitive of foods will be properly preserved, as tinplate is free of toxic and other health-harmful substances, being an inert material that is non-reactive with foods. Further, the fact that a tinplate container is air-tight will not permit hazardous and harmful substances to contaminate the product, and it will protect the product from light and ultraviolet radiation.
Tinplate is an environmentally friendly material. Thanks to its properties, it can be reclaimed from other waste much easier than any other packaging material, even from undifferentiated garbage, and it can be routed for recycling.
Also, even if discarded in the environment, tinplate will fully corrode, degrade and return to nature over time, without harmful side effects.
LEFCOMETAL’s environmental awareness has led it to apply a system of metal scrap recovery from the cutting and handling process, and work together with recycling firms in order to put such scrap to new use.
