Let’s face it, there are nearly as many choices in the pet food aisle as there are for humans! Dry pet food, wet pet food and of course treats, for dogs, cats, rabbits and more.
As it’s humans making the choice for their pet, just like in the other aisles your product needs to stand out and be protected. Who wants a spillage of pet food in the grocery bag? Not us, that’s why our pet packaging products are just the same as for human food – top quality.
Wet pet foods - sealing and/or closing is one of the most critical operations in the manufacture of heat-sterilised wet pet foods. Ensuring a hermetic seal is absolutely essential in providing a safe product which will meet the required shelf life. Additionally, the retort process in sterilisation is critical to ensure that you get the best quality packaging for your wet pet food ranges.
Especially designed for high speed machines requiring low temperature sealing, our high barrier films are applicable for both horizontal & vertical filling lines. A major benefit is greater rigidity compared to standard PE laminates, and the quality of the film guarantees no leakage in seal areas. As well as a high oxygen barrier, this film shows very good heat resistance and mechanical strength, resulting in excellent puncture and impact resistance. A high surface gloss ensures it looks good!
Korotop lidding films are a versatile range of multilayer laminates compatible with many different trays. To decide the best solution for you we evaluate several factors including the type of product to be packed, processing levels, package sizes, bottom trays and sealing parameters. Korotop films offer a high oxygen barrier and UV protection, excellent sealing properties on high speed packaging lines – even at low temperature - antifog for good visibility, superb mechanical strength and puncture resistance. There is even a peelable version for easy opening.
You should also consider Mini Pouches for packaging pet food treats that fall into the wet food bracket.
