METAL CANISTERS FOR FOOD PRODUCTS

U-Can Merge makes tin cans that are designed to pack, store and transport liquid food products. Common examples include sunflower oil, olive oil, corn, honey, jam and molasses.

Metal packaging is favourable to various other packaging materials. Metal cans made of tinplate have many benefits such as product safety, strength, lightness and long storage-life, in addition to the possibility

of applying various images, allowing you to distinguish your product from similar ones of your competitors.

We aim to produce reliable, practical and attractive
metal packaging for your product
