HISTORY OF THE CAN
The Metal Can Industry has come a long way from a humble beginning of production of a few cans a day to thousands of Cans a minute, in the present day. The Can has evolved over a period of 200 years to meet the ever-growing demand of quality packaged goods, today.
Being rigid and almost unbreakable the Can offers the best protection to its contents, which include foods, beverages, paints, chemicals, fertilizers, etc.
In India, the Can Making Industry has grown to assume major economic responsibilities with millions of Indians relying directly or indirectly on the Can for their livelihood. Cans in India, are today largely used for Chemicals, Paints and Fertilizers. The use of Cans by the Food Processing Industry in India is currently small but this industry is expected to grow and probably become the largest in the world.
Since Cans are made from recycled materials, they are environmentally safe and a better alternative to plastics. This has made many consumers switch to canned products, thus promoting the recycling industry. Aluminum Can recycling has already become a Billion Dollar industry worldwide and is one of the world's most successful environmental enterprises.
