Contan uses Polypropylene (PP) to manufacture our buckets and pails with lids.
Excellent temperature resistance makes it suitable for hot fill, and oxygen barrier solutions are available for pasteurisation and retort applications.Crack resistant freezer grade material and light barrier options are also available.
Our procurement is governed by strict quality specifications and supplier selection which ensures consistency of our product and full traceability.
Our raw materials for food packaging are compliant with EU legislation, and our finished packaging is independently migration tested on a random basis for food safety.
We pay voluntary levies on our raw materials to actively contribute towards reducing packaging waste to landfill and to drive recycling initiatives which create jobs and protect our environment.
All our packaging clearly indicates the PP polymer identification symbol for easier recycling.
Contan's buckets are manufactured using injection moulding.
Injection moulding gives great design flexibility, detailed accuracy and is ideal for containers with wide orifices and detailed designs.
We partner with leading suppliers for the latest technology and machinery; and offer a testing service to assess packaging integrity.
