Aluminium foil containers: sustainable packaging solutions
Why are aluminium foil containers so used? Aluminium plays an important role in food preservation and delivery systems thanks to its combination of properties: it’s odourless, impermeable and flexible; it keeps out ultraviolet rays and naturally generates a oxide coating that protect food from corrosion. In addition, recycling aluminium offers several advantages because this material can be recycled an infinite number of times and requires only 5% of the energy needed to produce the initial primary metal to recycle it.
How aluminium foil containers can minimise food waste
Aluminium foil containers can help the environment in different ways. They extend product shelf life and help to determinate the right portions: so they avoid food waste. In addition, aluminium trays can be sealed with different types of lids that preserve products, in particular, during transportation and storage.
