Vegetables come in an array of shapes, sizes and colors. Sautéed, steamed, boiled or braised, they can also be prepared in a variety of ways, providing consumers with countless meal options. The true value in vegetables, however, lies in their nutrition. Low in fat, cholesterol, and calories, while remaining abundant in nutrients, a diet rich in vegetables may help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and other ailments.1 Without these tasty and versatile foods, our meals would lack the nutrients needed to keep us going throughout the day.

Affordable and convenient, canned vegetables in particular provide a solution for those looking to reap health benefits through food. Metal cans protect their contents from moisture, oxygen, and other outside contaminants, while allowing consumers to enjoy fresh, tasty and nutritionally rich food in a convenient way. In addition, canned options provide consumers with a superior amount of vitamins and nutrients compared to their fresh or frozen counterparts because they are picked and packed at their peak nutrition.2

Today’s consumers also demand convenience from the products and packaging they buy, and metal cans deliver this in spades. Whether in terms of accessibility for consumers of all ages, portability or portion control, many of Crown’s technology innovations have helped redefine how consumers integrate products into their daily lives.
