Sonoco’s rigid paper containers are used to package some of the world’s most iconic food brands. Many of its most recent innovations will be on display in Birmingham later this month.

Chesterfield, UK – At Packaging Innovations & Empack, Birmingham, 25 & 26 May 2022, Sonoco will present the latest developments for its popular rigid paper board packaging solutions: EnviroCan™ and GREENCAN®.

Sonoco’s EnviroCan™ (part of its wider EnviroSense™ range) has a paperboard end made with recycled and recyclable paper fibres. The can body is made with recycled fibre, and EnviroCan™ also features a highly effective oxygen and moisture barrier layer, which assures food safety and preserves shelf-life, while ensuring that recycling is straight-forward through the household paper and cardboard stream.

The design of Sonoco’s EnviroCan™ allows brands to address the ongoing challenge of balancing responsible materials sourcing and recyclability with product and food safety – all while enhancing shelf-life performance.

The wide variety of closures available for this range – including paper lids and sprinkler options – will also be showcased on the Sonoco stand.

Sonoco’s GREENCAN® solution, a recyclable package made of 92-98% paperboard, with a wide range of barrier properties, will also feature on Sonoco’s stand. Available in multiple shapes and sizes – from round, square or rectangular; to oval, oblong or triangular, it is the ultimate ‘all-paper’ can, providing a highly recyclable, mono-material packaging solution, with robust barrier properties.

Both ranges are suitable for the food and drink, beauty and pharma markets, and are already used by some of the most iconic global brands.
