  • Catering
  • Take-away

Unique & Versatile Properties
The aluminium container owes a large part of its acknowledged advantages to the attributes of the aluminium material itself:

  • Aluminium provides a total barrier and protects sensitive and valuable food from deterioration;
  • It has unique mechanical properties as it is highly formable and can also be ‘dead folded’, which is beneficial when deep drawing and shaping containers;
  • Aluminium is an excellent conductor of heat and at the same time is heat-resistant, allowing quick and controlled heating of the container’s food content;
  • The decorative potential of aluminium foil lends itself to strong shelf-appeal and striking pack design: the material is both bright and reflective and can be colour-lacquered or printed;
  • Aluminium foil helps meet source reduction and sustainability goals through the development of lightweight and down-gauged packaging. Aluminium containers can be recycled time and again without any loss of quality.

The use of aluminium containers in microwave ovens is perfectly viable. Conclusive evidence that aluminium foil containers can be used safely in microwave ovens was established in a study by the Fraunhofer Institute, Germany. More details:
