Food & Catering

Tinning is used in the food/catering sector to provide a hard-wearing, non-poisonous surface to copper and aluminium food equipment.

Food & Catering Tinning Uses Include:

• Chip baskets
• Cooling trays
• Copper pans
• Pork pie rings

Tin is purchased to BS EN 610 (1996) and items processed to BS 3788 (1984), Tin Coated Finish on Culinary Utensils (which Gamesons helped to develop with BSI).

This means a guaranteed coating of less than 0.2% lead. Pure tin baths are sampled every 12 weeks for independent analysis.
