Canning is the process of preserving food products and extending their shelf life. Canned products are used in many countries in extensive quantities owing to their benefits. Canned foods reduce the spoilage of food because of external factors like sunlight, air, or insects. Canning preserves the nutrients of the food as it is. Many fast-food chains and restaurants use canned foods like corn, tomato purees, and many more owing to their convenience and longer shelf life. Major players like Campbell’s, Del Monte, Nestle, and many other companies relaunch their older products with new packaging or logos to attract consumers’ attention. For instance, in November 2021, Campbell Soups relaunched its Campbell’s Condensed Soup with a new logo, packaging, and visual identity.
