The Challenge

Steel cans have been around for 200 years.

And steel for packaging is everywhere, especially food cans.

Be it fish, beans, pet food, infant formula, or coffee… steel accounts for nearly 20% of rigid packaging materials used for the main food product categories. 

Food products come in a high variety of packaging materials but with rising concerns about the environmental impact for some packaging materials (particularly plastics and cardboard) steel has an increasing role to play thanks to its remarkable sustainability credentials.

In addition, needs and habits of consumption are constantly evolving, and so is steel.

Your mission is to imagine the future of steel packaging for food. That means providing new and innovative solutions and designs for food packaging which have a very high percentage of steel. Your ideas need to be original, practical, functional AND feasible.
