Ever since the canning process was first introduced to food manufacturing in the 19th century as a way of keeping food fresh and extending its shelf life, food retailers for both humans and pets have benefited from packaging their products in cans.
However, in recent times there has been a shift amongst pet food manufacturers’ packaging moving away from cans and towards pouches or bags. Demand for metal cans as a method of pet food packaging has dropped in recent years, indicating that pouches are becoming the universally preferred packaging method in the industry.
Perhaps the clearest motivation behind the shift towards pouch packaging is the functionality which pet owners would be most easily won over by – the ability to tear the package open with ease, reseal the pouch and then be able to open it again at a later time to access the food again. In this scenario, a grip-seal resealable pouch packaging is ideal as it cuts down waste if the pet food package contains more than one serving.
Generally speaking, storing pet food in pouches boasts a number of benefits when compared to canned pet food beyond the ease of resealing the packaging. Not only does selling pet food in pouches mean pet owners don’t have to repackage the remaining contents of a tin into a separate container, but it is also considerably safer when it comes to a pet’s health.
Leaving open tins of pet food in the fridge is frowned upon by health professionals due to the fact that once exposed to air and the rest of the fridge’s contents, the food can change flavour, turn mouldy or even absorb metal particles; thus becoming a hazard to the pet. On the other hand, high-barrier aluminium pouches offer one of the best barriers in the flexible packaging industry, protecting pet food from moisture, oxygen and smells – therefore keeping it fresh and healthy!
