Independent Can Captures IMDPA Best of Show and Category

Independent Can Company has again been recognized for excellence in print quality by the International Metal Decorating and Packaging Association (IMDPA) at its annual conference. Each year, the IMDPA recognizes the skillful achievements of metal decorators. Independent Can Company, for many consecutive years, has won the prestigious “Award of Excellence” and “Best of Category” in Specialty Packaging.

This year, ICC has captured the Grand Award, Best of Show, for the Cheetos Popcorn can that was printed and manufactured for PepsiCo. This same exciting package, featuring Chester Cheetah, won Best of Category for Excellence in Quality for Specialty and Fancy Cans.

Grand Award

It was a great pleasure for Independent Can to work with Pepsico on this exciting new can project. The can contained Cheetos Popcorn in two flavors: Flamin' Hot and Cheddar. Since this initial launch, PepsiCo has entrusted ICC with additional projects for their seasonal promotions. Tin packaging is in line with PepsiCo's sustainability goals. PepsiCo considers the full environmental impact of packaging, including the likelihood the material will be recycled and become part of a circular economy. Steel packaging can be recycled infinitely without loss of quality and remade in to anything new made from steel.

For brand loyalists, these award-winning containers will be collectibles. Who would throw away a tin featuring their favorite mascot?

We want to congratulate our teams in Belcamp, Maryland, Vandalia, Ohio and Fort Madison, Iowa for the pursuit of excellence in their work for the benefit of ICC and our customers. Independent Can has two strategically-located lithography operations, in Maryland and Ohio. No other specialty packaging manufacturer can match ICC’s capacity or capability in metal decorating.
