Pineapple Juice Cans

Why is pineapple juice still sold in cans? All other fruit juice comes in plastic bottles. The best I could think of is maybe the juice is sensitive to light.

letter from Dole

Dear Mr. Harmon:

Thank you for contacting us.

Dole Pineapple Juice currently is only packaged in cans because plastic
bottles allowing light to hit the juice tend to discolor the juice making
it unappealing to most consumers.

We appreciate your interest in Dole Food Company. We're glad to provide the
information you requested and hope it is useful.
