The firm says the use of Milacron’s Klear Can shows consumers the quality and freshness of its pineapple products at the time of purchase.
Milacron CEO Tom Goeke said: “After years of development and strong positive consumer results, we’re excited to have S&W Fine Foods International on-board as a partner to launch the Milacron Klear Can in key global markets. We are also thrilled about the prospect of transforming the metal can industry.
S&W is the first company to offer tropical fruit in clear plastic cans. Milacron’s Klear Can is suitable for fruits, vegetables, soup, meat and other products.
The Klear Can is In-Mould Label (IML) compatible, using the same industry-standard can ends, filling, seaming and retorting machinery as metal cans.
The firm added that the can is a patented co-injection moulded, polypropylene EVOH plastic can, which can be cooked and seamed, meeting all industry standards. It is BPA-free for safe food contact, recyclable, and is fully microwavable.
