Global packaging firm Crown's Aerosols & Speciality Packaging Europe business unit has entered a strategic partnership with Nestlé Professional to create new packaging for Nescafe coffee in the UK.
The companies have developed a new container in three sizes, including 500g, 750g and 1kg, and a three-piece tin with a rounded, rectangular shape, as well as Crown's PeelSeam peelable end.
Crown Aerosols & Speciality Packaging Europe marketing director Véronique Curulla said: "Once again metal has presented itself as the go-to material for a world-leading brand.
"We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved with Nestle - the new tins represent a truly collaborative effort between Crown's European teams and Nestlé's own creative group."
The new package features a thin, flexible aluminium foil lid, which is heat-sealed to a rigid steel ring.
It also incorporates an AptarGroup-designed, resealable, hinged-lid plastic cap to preserve contents using 'Click to Close' technology.
In January, Crown announced its plans to build a new beverage can plant in New York, US.
Set to begin operations in 2017, the new plant will produce two-piece aluminium cans in a range of sizes.
