Aluminum and Packaging Industry
As a versatile packaging material, aluminum plays a key role in the preservation, distribution and display of food. Today, aluminum packaging wraps and protects many products, from toothpaste tubes in bathrooms to countless products in markets, from oven dishes wrapped in foil in the kitchen to cold drinks in the refrigerator.
The use of aluminum as a packaging material in the food industry goes back to the early 20th century. The Tobler factory in Switzerland, which produced Toblerone chocolate in 1911, and Maggi, the instant soup maker in 1912, goes down in history as the first companies to use aluminum foil.
Ideal for protecting food and pharmaceutical products from light, oxygen, moisture and contamination, aluminum can be shaped both lightly and easily. Baking trays made of aluminum can tolerate temperatures between -40 ° C and 350 ° C and provide the highest food safety thanks to their unique barrier properties. The fact that it can be fully recycled and reused for an infinite number makes this metal unique for the packaging industry. Logistics is also optimized because it is lightweighted compared to plastic.
It is possible to customize the aluminum packaging with colors, prints or embossments. Thanks to this feature, we see amazing packaging examples on the shelves.
Today, approximately 7 billion aluminum foil containers are produced annually. All sustainable companies are trying to produce only ecological products to meet their customers’ expectations. Consumers are also increasingly sensitive to the quality, design and environmental impact of the products they buy.
