Consumers are demanding more sustainable packaging that is fully recyclable, portable, reusable and safe for their health and environment. More than one million plastic bottles are sold every minute. The number of plastic bottles produced yearly is projected to increase to 583.3 billion in 2021 with massive environmental impact.
With that in mind, the impetus for creating Canovation was launched, and with it, the development of the patented and award winning CanReseal began to take shape. Today, Canovation is a container engineering & design company created in response to worldwide consumer demand for a reduction in the consumption of plastic, which is destroying our ecosystems and our health.
Canovation is a collection of engineers, packaging industry veterans, forward-thinking entrepreneurs, and business pioneers that strongly believe in our mission to help protect and preserve our planet by creating revolutionary, sustainable packaging solutions.
We created the award-winning CanReseal® resealable can technology to empower worldwide container manufacturers and product brands with the tools to accomplish this urgent goal, and ultimately prevent billions of tons of plastic waste from polluting our planet.
It’s time for the packaging industry to move forward and continue to evolve. Canovation is poised to be the catalyst for big change in an industry that has traditionally moved slowly.

Packaging Design Winner
Canovation has received numerous design and industry awards.
These honors confirm the excellent work of our packaging innovators and engineers, who have perfected the metal can by making it resealable. A passion for sustainability, continuous innovation, and a keen understanding of industry and consumer needs resulted in CanReseal, a simple solution that has created a industry-recognized sustainable packaging system for many product applications.
Preserving our environment is integrated into every aspect of design and innovation at Canovation. We design for full recyclability with an end goal of net zero waste in landfills and to help create a circular economy. CanReseal® is our answer to this with a fully resealable lid which provides portability, decreases food waste, and meets our rigorous environmental sustainability requirements.
We are also cognizant that many countries are changing their single use packaging laws, and our solutions are designed to stay ahead of the curve.
The target for CanReseal is anyone concerned with the plastic apocalypse – ranging from manufacturers, brands and consumers. The worldwide consumption of plastic continues to rise. In 2004, 300 billion plastic bottles were sold. In 2021, one million plastic bottles are sold every minute, and the number of bottles sold yearly will increase to more than 580 billion annually.
CanReseal offers a solution that addresses the movement for global sustainability by dramatically reducing daily dependency on single-use plastics, ultimately preventing billions of tons of plastic waste from polluting the planet.
Canovation is obsessed with our role in corporate social responsibility and protecting the environment. We want to stop the plastic apocalypse that is negatively impacting the ecology of our planet.
