08:15 EDTCAGConAgra says removes all BPA from cans across portfolio
ConAgra Foods announced that all of the company’s facilities in the U.S. and Canada have completed the transition to cans without Bisphenol A liners. While ConAgra Foods began canning some food in non-BPA lined cans in 2010, other foods required a different approach, due to their acidity or other characteristics. Extensive research and trials to find safe, long-lasting and economical packaging led the company to Ardagh Group, a global leader in glass and metal packaging solutions. Ardagh invested in capacity and capability to meet ConAgra Foods’ needs, and began providing the company non-BPA cans earlier this year. The cans are made in new, state-of-the-art production facilities using advanced technologies that allow for use of different coating systems using polyester or acrylic materials that do not contain BPA. As of July 30, all ConAgra Foods canned foods made in its U.S. and Canadian facilities will be packaged in cans with non-BPA liners. The company does import into the U.S. and Canada a small quantity of canned products with BPA liners and is working with the suppliers of these products to convert to non-BPA liners by early 2016.
