Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with Cans!
This year, the annual holiday that is widely associated with the color green, falls on Saturday, March 17th. What started as a religious feast day in the 17th century to observe the death of Ireland’s patron saint, St. Patrick, has since transformed into a worldwide celebration, filled with unique foods and beverages.
Corned beef and cabbage are one of the most popular meals served on this holiday in the United States. In fact, corned beef remains a staple in the diets of consumers in many countries around the world year-round. Production of corned beef cans has increased from over 10 million units in 2013 to almost 25 million units in 2016 globally. Canned corned beef is a great option for families looking to save time on meal preparation, leaving more time for reveling in the fun of the holiday.
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in various ways around the world, from dyeing a river green to throwing a party or making a special meal. There are also ways to be “green” without wearing the color, perhaps by recycling your canned foods and beverages or participating in other sustainable practices.
