Hoffmann Neopac, an international supplier of high-quality cans for the baby food, wellbeing, and consumer goods industries, was acknowledged in Canmaker Magazine’s annual competition for two recently launched can solutions.
Remarkably, the company’s resealable, airtight metal lid received a Gold Award in the “Ends, Caps & Closures” competition class.
The airtight metal lid was designed in cooperation with the client and is created with an added food-safe combination that makes it perfect for coffee and dry products.
In highly humid countries, products suffered from a temporary shelf life after first opening. Hoffmann’s latest metal lid for 3-piece cans in diameter 73 mm seals well and guarantees freshness and refillability. In addition, the packaging is completely recyclable in the metal stream.
The lid’s fresh seal is created feasible by precisely placing a food-safe sealing ring that presses on the rim of the can container when it is closed.
The caps can be embossed for a customized design and are also available in a Green Steel version, with 70% less carbon emissions. In addition, the cap is stackable, making it more comfortable to store and transit the cans.
In the Prototyping category, Hoffmann received a Bronze Award for its child-resistant all-metal can with a high barrier. The fully recyclable cans are ideal for various products where child safety is necessary, such as medical cannabis and certain foods and cosmetics.
The all-metal cans are the company’s second generation of CR cans. The first generation still contained plastic inserts. By switching to all-metal construction, the cans are not only more recyclable but keep fresh and provide protection from light.
Hoffmann’s all-metal CR cans are lightweight, durable, and can be labeled or offset printed. Both the lid and the body of the can can be decorated, providing enough space for branding and the necessary safety instructions.
The cans also protect the taste and integrity of the product and are easy to fill, refill, and reseal by hand. Most importantly, they protect children from unplanned ingestion of a product.
