Aluminium foil containers are available in all shapes and sizes to meet different food packing requirements.
They are useful for food preparation, cooking, freezing, storage & heating etc.
They are light in weight, easy to handle, store & transport.
They can be sterilized and are suitable for use both in conventional and microwave cookers. As aluminium is impervious to moisture, gas, grease & sunlight, optimum freshness, flavour and aroma of contents is ensured, with no 'tainting' from the packaging. In other instances, where a barrier is required, perhaps because of the acidic nature of food, an internal protective coating can be applied.
Most importantly, aluminium foil is endlessly recyclable, thereby drastically reducing energy needs in its manufacture and also conserving natural resources.
