River Run Foods is proud to offer this reimagined canned food packaging. Watch our video to see how a carton package is the modern solution for your food products.

Lightweight Packaging Ready To Lift Your Brand

Moving From Cans To Carton Food Packaging

As a canned food manufacturer, you have so much to gain from transferring to a modern carton packaging system like Tetra Recart®. Your products get an instant facelift, and a stable, lightweight package that's perfect for e-grocery. What's more, carbon emissions from Tetra Recart over the lifetime of the package are 81% lower* than those of steel cans and glass jars. In recent years, the food industry has seen whole product categories moving into cartons. For example, canned tomatoes, canned beans, canned vegetables and even canned pet food are commonly sold in Tetra Recart packaging these days. The transition is easy, but of course, there are some things you need to think about.

Adaptable Packaging For Evolving Tastes

Get Ahead of Consumer Trends Affecting The Canned Food Industry

Consumer tastes are driven by changing ideas about personal health and by broader societal trends such as concern for the environment, lack of time and a longing for authentic food experiences. Here, we highlight three of the consumer food trends that could be affecting your canned food business.

  • The new attitude that is evolving – 'what is good for the planet is also good for me' – presents new opportunities for food producers.
  • The popularity of online food shopping – not only groceries but also meal kits, prepared food and even pet food – is increasing rapidly.
  • For new products to succeed in this category, food producers need to align the authenticity and quality of ingredients with the right recipes and product presentation.
