Metal is the preferred packaging for seafood products, providing the quality, sustainability and shelf life consumers trust. As the world’s leading supplier of aluminium and steel cans for seafood products, Trivium delivers the production capacity, product portfolio and innovation seafood manufacturers need to increase the value of their brand.
The Ultimate in Protection
Metal cans are the packaging of choice for seafood. Impermeable, unbreakable, heat- and puncture-resistant and completely impervious to oxygen, light and bacteria, metal packaging transforms a perishable product into a long shelf life consumer staple. Canned seafood can be stored for long periods without the need for preservatives or refrigeration.
Award-Winning Designs, Easy Open Cans
Metal cans also deliver the opportunity to stand out on retail shelves.
Trivium’s award-winning Tripod® design, for example, offers seafood producers a smart, modern can that delivers real shelf appeal. Featuring an Easy Peel® lid for added convenience, Tripod’s combination of white PET and white PP provide a distinctively fresh and hygienic appearance ideal for sleeved multipacks.
Decoration is also a powerful tool for differentiation. Our in-house graphic centres provide a multitude of decorative techniques that add distinction to your brand.

With a global footprint and production facilities in all the main canning zones, Trivium is a well-established part of the seafood processing community.

Awards Pile Up for Trivium Can for Orkla Foods
Our “Hansa” shaped seafood can for Orkla Foods Norge’s Stabburet mackerel filet was one of the most awarded cans in the world in 2019. It garnered a WorldStar Packaging Award, was named Canmaker's Can of the Year, and received a Cannex Gold award, an AluFoil Trophy and was recognised at Starpack for engineering innovation.
The can features an exceptionally light, yet rigid, body, manufactured from 0.19 mm gauge aluminium and fitted with an Easy Open end. It was produced in 60 different striking designs marking different towns and cities in Norway.
Creating the World’s Lightest Seafood Can
Pioneering work at Trivium’s aluminium can plant in Cuxhaven, north Germany, supported by our R&D Centre, resulted in the production of the world’s lightest aluminium seafood can.
The shaped Dingley can achieves a wall thickness of 0.170 mm, a significant advance over its nearest competitor at 0.215 mm. Despite it's ultra lightweight, it retains the stability of a standard can and can be fitted with an Easy Open ring-pull lid.
