The ends are supplied by Crown Food Europe, a business unit of Crown Holdings, Inc. The new metal cans address the growing demand for more convenient product access, offering enhanced packaging openability for consumers. Jealsa is incorporating Crown's PeelSeam™ peelable end on its 150mm x 65mm cans for the tuna product line it supplies to Mercadona, Spain’s leading retailer, under the Mercadona's "Hacendado" brand. The decorated can also features a recloseable plastic lid to facilitate re-use.

"Using Crown's peelable easy-to-open end has enabled us to offer a new level of convenience on larger can sizes, ideal for families, caterers and even hotels," said Carmen Calvo, a spokesperson from Jealsa. "Crown provided strategic guidance and support throughout the project to ensure smooth delivery to Mercadona."

Crown's PeelSeam™ peelable ends consist of a thin flexible foil heat-sealed to a rigid steel ring for conventional double seaming onto standard containers. No adjustment to tooling or seaming processes is required. The end enables consumers to open the metal package smoothly, easily and safely, crucial in an industry where convenience is key.

The latest family of PeelSeam™ peelable ends - now including 65mm (211), 73mm (300), 83mm (307), 99mm (401), 150mm (600) diameters and also rectangular ends - is compatible with Crown's steel and aluminum stylish bowl-shaped cans, standard three-piece cans with volumes up to 2kg, as well as non-round cans. The ends are suitable for both processed foods such as fish, ready meals, vegetables or desserts and non-processed dry foods such as milk and coffee powder.
