Ardagh Invests in Seafood Packaging

Ardagh’s metal packaging production plant in Casablanca, Morocco, is celebrating its tenth anniversary with the announcement of a significant enhancement of its steel seafood can production capability.

The investment, which incorporates state of the art production, inspection and palletisation features, consolidates the company’s position as a leading producer of seafood cans, serving a growing customer base. Ardagh has standardised a body gauge dimension of 0.14mm on its seafood packaging globally, the thinnest gauge in the industry, enhancing the products’ sustainability footprint.

Patrick Savouré, Commercial Director of Ardagh’s seafood sector is very optimistic about the plant’s future growth prospects: “The recent worldwide interest in seafood canning is not only based on its health, sustainability and preservative qualities. Well-known restaurants around the world are now serving seafood dishes as a trendy starter in their original cans, and consumers are keeping the cans as collectors’ items.”

He quotes a recent 60 minute French TV documentary (on France 5, May 20, 2018) about seafood canning. “It seems that this most traditional and best form of seafood packaging is back in vogue, and with our worldwide network of plants, pioneering technology and impressive R&D capabilities Ardagh is uniquely placed to benefit,” he adds.
