We have chosen to pack our products in metal cans in order to protect them from light. Light exposure is the principal cause of oil oxidation, rapidly progressing to rancidity. After only two months storage in a clear glass container exposed to light, the oil will become oxidised, and loose both its taste and nutritional qualities.
Metal containers have the advantage of being better suited for transport, as they are lighter and more resilient than glass containers. What’s more, metal is a more easily recyclable material.
