Read our blog post below and learn why you should transition your pet food packaging to be environmentally friendly.
There’s Huge Demand for Sustainable Pet Food Packaging
According to a report from Trivium Packaging with Boston Consulting Group, consumers identify environmentally friendly or recyclable packaging as very important to them. In fact, 74% of consumers in the study would pay more for sustainable packaging.
Another study, conducted by IRI and the NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business, shows that 7 in 10 consumers are buying more eco-friendly products as they did before the COVID-19 pandemic. This is because many people are looking for ways to reduce their waste and negative impact on the planet.
What Materials are Being Used in Sustainable Pet Food Packaging?
The ability to recycle packaging is extremely important for consumers. So, implementing packaging that can be recycled is key to your success. Solutions may include:
- Corrugated boxes
- Recycled materials
- Compostable packaging
- Reusable containers
- And much more
Additionally, pet food companies should consider reducing their overall packaging. One method that can be implemented to reduce your environmental impact is avoiding over-packaging. Over-packaging refers to any product that is covered in multiple layers of unnecessary materials. While some extra layers may serve a purpose, you should consider if you really need them in your pet food packaging.
