Dixie Canner specializes in the manufacturing of can seamers, food processing equipment and retorts for low-volume, Commercial Kitchen/Community Cannery, Pilot Plant, R&D and Specialty Canning applications. We see a lot of different types of cans and lids used for all kinds of products. There are multiple options in today’s can market, beyond the typical aluminum, steel and tin food and beverage cans that everyone is familiar with. There are many types of Plastic (PET) containers and Composite (Paperboard) containers available. The one common theme is the Container is round and the end (lid) is metal.
Large can makers usually have a global footprint, many facilities, and a wide variety of can types and industries served. Most of these large companies are not set up to serve a small scale customer. Instead, distributors purchase from the large companies and provide cans, lids, labeling and other services to smaller quantity customers. We have compiled some of our most trusted can manufacturers and supplier. While this is not an exhaustive list, it is a great starting point as well as resource for value-added can supplier services.

When dealing with food and beverage cans be sure to know what type of products you will be canning as well as if thermal processing (Retort Processing) is required. Know the acid/Ph levels to make sure you have proper can lining. Most can suppliers will be able to provide some technical help as well as Can Manufacturer’s Seam Specifications.
Keep in mind that just because a can may have same size nomenclature, (202 x 412) for example, cans and lids may vary somewhat from can manufacturer to can manufacturer. It is always imperative to make sure your can supplier is providing consistently sourced cans and lids, and makes you aware of supplier changes so you can see if cans and lids fit on current tooling your can seamer is equipped with.
