Can Corporation of America (CCA) is a steel can manufacturer supplying food processors in the fruit, vegetable and coffee industries throughout the United States and Canada. In 1976, our owners decided that third party can companies were not serving the long term needs of Giorgio Foods, Inc. and therefore decided to move can manufacturing in-house. Today, Giorgio Foods accounts for less than 5% of CCA’s production output. Metal packaging manufactured by Can Corporation is the most sustainable packaging in the world. Steel can be used and recycled infinitely without any loss of properties.
