At Crown, how we make our products is just as important as what we make. We remain committed to making Crown better in many different ways, including conserving resources across our operations to implementing manufacturing practices that improve productivity and safety. We are proud of these efforts and are honored when our local communities or industry recognizes them.
Families across the United States have varying traditions when it comes to the food they serve for the holidays. However, pumpkin pie is, without a doubt, synonymous with Thanksgiving. In fact, around 50 million pumpkin pies are consumed each Thanksgiving.1
Canned pumpkin is an ideal, time-saving option to create this delicious dessert. Along with pumpkin pie, canned pumpkin can be used in numerous other recipes, such as pumpkin pie-stuffed waffles, creamy pumpkin spice bars, pumpkin cookies and more!
Brand owners and consumers alike value beverage cans for their hallmark characteristics, including their convenience and their ability to keep contents fresher for longer. The format also truly embodies sustainability. Unlike other materials, metal is a permanent material that is 100% recyclable and can be continuously reused with absolutely no degradation in performance or quality.
The annual celebration of Halloween has its roots in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. Over time, the tradition has evolved into a holiday where the young and the young-at-heart overindulge in candy and dress up in their favorite costumes.
Crown Food Europe and Princes, one of the UK’s leading food and beverage brands, have teamed up to educate the country’s consumers about the unique advantages of canned food, including convenience, value for money, nutritional benefits and sustainability. The campaign, called Love Canned Food, also aims to dispel misconceptions that many consumers have about the quality and taste of canned foods.
What if a food can could alert us when a product is near expiration via our smart phones? Or inform us about product nutrition, ingredients, manufacturing processes and how and where to recycle the package once its contents are consumed? This kind of “intelligent packaging” is closer to becoming a reality than you might think.
Since 2012, Manufacturing Day has been an opportunity to celebrate modern manufacturing in the United States.

International Coffee Day serves as an opportunity to celebrate sustainable coffee-growing practices and the organizations that support them. Crown continues to work with coffee roasters, such as La Colombe, to design innovative packaging solutions that extend the shelf life of coffee and bring new modes of retail-ready packaging to consumers.
