Packaging company Ardagh Group has announced that it will expand the production capacity of its metal packaging manufacturing facility in Casablanca, Morocco.
The facility produces a range of cans for the seafood industry, and the investment will allow the company to install new production, inspection and palletisation features at the site.
Ardagh says that the upgraded facility will consolidate the company’s position as one of the world’s leading seafood can manufacturers, amid rising demand for the products from clients.
Patrick Savouré, commercial director of Ardagh’s seafood sector said: “The recent worldwide interest in seafood canning is not only based on its health, sustainability and preservative qualities.
“Well-known restaurants around the world are now serving seafood dishes as a trendy starter in their original cans, and consumers are keeping the cans as collectors’ items.
“It seems that this most traditional and best form of seafood packaging is back in vogue, and with our worldwide network of plants, pioneering technology and impressive R&D capabilities Ardagh is uniquely placed to benefit.”
