Cans

The total package.

Round and shaped paperboard cans offer your company cost advantages, support sustainability goals and add shelf appeal and performance benefits.

You want packaging that gets attention on crowded shelves.

The retail market today is more challenging than ever before. With more than 47,000 products in the average supermarket, companies must continuously discover novel ways to get shoppers to notice their products. Paperboard cans can be manufactured in almost any shape or size: tall and skinny, short and broad, or wide-mouthed like a coffee can, easily meeting your specific requirements.

You want customers to have a positive brand experience and become repeat buyers.

Consumers who have a positive interaction with a product at home are more likely to buy that brand again. Factors like resealability, ease of opening and being lightweight can all be a factor in whether the customer becomes a repeat buyer.

You need packaging that protects your contents and keeps food fresh.

Great-looking packaging alone won’t win repeat buyers. We evaluated performance and determined that cans excel at providing physical protection for delicate foods and maintaining freshness, both before and after the container is opened.

…and you want your packaging to be cost-efficient, lightweight and environmentally responsible. So how do you manage all of these competing needs? You need a partner with packaging expertise who understands the market challenges.

Sizes, Heights and Diameters

The possibilities are limitless when you choose a can manufactured by Sonoco. We deliver a completely customisable package so your product will stand out. A variety of sizes in height and diameter allows your brand to have a demanding presence on the retail shelf. Our can heights and diameters are easily adaptable to fit special usage occasions or retail space considerations, costing little change-over time.

Customised features

Why settle for less than perfect? In addition to the sizing variations that come standard when choosing a can, Sonoco offers multiple material options to tailor the can to your specific marketing goals. For instance, you might be interested in our EcoSeal™ paper bottom technology, an alternative to the standard metal bottom with customizable closure options. Or, our recessed membrane provides a low-material membrane for a non-hermetic product application that can be paired with either a resealable lid or a plug-in cap. Contact us to learn more.
