The tin can was patented in 1810 by Peter Durand, an English inventor. As he was not involved in food production, Durand sold his patent to Bryan Donkin and John Hall, who started commercial canning around 1813, packing food for the British Navy.

Cans can be made of steel (formerly generally called tinplate) or aluminum. Depending on the application and region, one or the other type of metal is more common. Generally, steel is used for industrial containers -oils- or domestic containers such as paints and preserves, both metals are used for aerosols, aluminum is used exclusively for semi-rigid containers, and both are used for beverage cans, although aluminum is currently replacing steel in Europe. Metal containers have ideal characteristics for food packaging.

Given the interest of brands to differentiate themselves and to introduce promotional elements in the packaging, it is common to find cans with colored rings or with messages under the lid that are only revealed when the lid is opened. In this way, proof of purchase is only obtained if the product has been consumed. The technique is carried out by ink printing or high-speed stamping without slowing down the line. The colored ring differentiates the product by coordinating with the brand image and also serves as proof for contests and promotions.
