At last month’s international congress on pet’s packaging in Paris, visitors were able to learn more about Superfos pet food packaging, including LongLife – a PP pack developed for wet pet food as an alternative to the commonly-used aluminium tray. This pack is suitable for autoclave and features UV light barrier protection and an oxygen barrier for extended shelf life. The LongLife pack for wet pet food was also exhibited in the Pack Innovation area of Emballage (Paris, November 2014).
Pet food producers from around the world recognise the high quality of RPC Superfos lines that meet their specific requirements. The versatile UniPak, for instance, is available in a number of volumes from 120ml to 5-litres, and several shapes – round, rectangular, oval or square. It is also widely used as a measuring cup.
Eye-catching promotional items
Free pail boosts sales of dog food
Based in Canada, Champion Petfoods produces biologically appropriate pet food, made from fresh regional ingredients, high in meat content and low in carbohydrates. To promote its products, the company provides freely-available measuring cups, while a storage pail is offered as a loyalty gift to dog owners who buy 13kg dry pet food.
RPC Superfos was selected to produce both items.
For the measuring cups, Champion Petfoods uses RingLock and UniPak pots. For the dry pet food, once a bag is opened, Hobbock pails provide the perfect answer.
In addition, with in-mould labelling they create a high visual impact. All three containers are injection moulded in polypropylene.
