Anniversary article reveals integrated steel approach

Agricultural producers and retailers are shifting towards a more integrated approach when it comes to steel packaging, according to the third in a series of articles commissioned to celebrate APEAL’s 30th anniversary.
APEAL (the Association of European Producers of Steel for Packaging) published the article to share views about the future of steel for packaging. Written by Elisabeth Payeux, deputy managing director of the French Technical Centre for the food canning industry, it highlights the wide-ranging benefits of packing food in steel, such as offering an effective solution for preserving nutrients and extending product shelf life, combatting food waste and helping to reduce energy consumption.

Alexis Van Maercke, Secretary General of APEAL (pictured), said: “Each article explores the unique properties of steel for packaging, focusing on the ability of steel to protect and promote brands, its role as a permanent material in a circular economy, and how steel packaging’s ability to preserve and protect food will become increasingly important.”
