S&W's pineapple chunks and slices packaged in the Milacron Klear Can.
S&W's pineapple chunks and slices packaged in the Milacron Klear Can.

US-based S&W Fine Foods International partnered with Milacron Holdings Corp. to have their pineapple chunks and slices packaged in the Milacron Klear Can. It is the first company in the world to offer tropical fruit in a clear plastic can.

The first Klear Can packages are now on store shelves in Seoul, South Korea and Shanghai, China, with plans to expand over the coming year.

After extremely successful qualitative testing with consumers in Asia conducted by Nielsen Market Research, S&W Fine Foods International chose the Milacron Klear Can for their products to highlight their products' quality and freshness, as its crystal clear transparency allows consumers to see through the packaging.

As said, Klear Can's clarity is superior to the competing extruded three-piece "clear" plastic can, which can suffers from die mold streaking, greatly affecting clarity.

The Klear Can product line can be easily integrated into existing business model, according to the company. It is In-mold Labeling (IML) compatible, using the same industry standard can ends, filling, seaming and retorting machinery as metal cans. Food manufactures can also have the flexibility to mold the cans at the filling site via "through-the-wall" supply operations.

"After years of development and strong positive consumer results, we're excited to have S&W Fine Foods International on-board as a partner to launch the Milacron Klear Can in key global markets. We are also thrilled about the prospect of transforming the metal can industry," said Milacron CEO Tom Goeke.

Milacron Klear Can is a patented plastic can co-injection molded with polypropylene (PP) and ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH), which can be cooked and seamed, meeting all industry standards. It is BPA-free for safe food contact, recyclable, and is fully microwavable.

Klear Can is designed to withstand standard retort pressures and temperatures up to 130°C. In addition, the lightweight can is stackable and dent-resistant through all aspects of the manufacturing and transportation process.
