Biscuits in tin can packaging has been around for centuries and is an art form in itself.

Rebisco Designer Tin Cans featuring the works of contemporary and budding artists—Aljo Pingol, Dominic Rubio, and three young artists from Rizal—keep the tradition alive!

Besides being a good gift idea for the holidays, the limited-edition cans are “a gift that gives.”

Tin Can Art: Give the Gift That Gives This Christmas

Tin Can Beginnings

Did you know that the practice of packaging biscuits and cookies in tin cans has been around since the 16th century?

European voyagers packed biscuits as snacks for long trips and placed them in cans. Several hundred years later airtight cans, meant to store biscuits so they would not crumble and stay oven-fresh, were invented.

Since then, tin cans have been the best containers for biscuits and cookies, evolving into pretty things that people kept, collected and reused.

This year, Rebisco is keeping the biscuits-in-tin cans tradition alive with its Special Edition Designer Cans.

First introduced in 2018, each designer can is a mini version of the big, iconic Rebisco tin cans that have been favorite Pinoy pasalubongs for generations.
