Ardagh wins for seafood can
Ardagh Group has been awarded the Alufoil Trophy 2019 for its seafood can for Orkla Food Norway; a printed, easy open, aluminium lid and container for a traditional fish fillet.
The project saw sixty different designs presented on a ‘Hansa’ shaped seafood can for Orkla’s Staburret mackerel filet, a national dish in Norway. Each design, some of which use cartoons, and all linked by the brand’s recognisable yellow background, represents a different town or place, an aspect of people’s behaviour or way of life in Norway. The attractive can is ultra-thin which provides an even greater sustainability advantage without affecting the can format or high-speed filling performance.
Patrick Savouré, commercial director seafood at Ardagh Group’s metal division, said: “I am delighted that this lightweight aluminium can with its striking design has been awarded such an important trophy.”
Orkla has specified aluminium for its cans for many years due to its 100% recyclability – endlessly without loss of quality – and excellent functionality.
