Faerch Plast has developed an range of packaging specially designed for pet food products. The packaging is made of AMPET, especially developed for ambient products. The material is lightweight but stable, and is ideal for pet food packaging. The packaging does not taint the taste of the food which given a dog’s keen sense of taste and smell, is an important detail. Moreover, the packaging can be tailored to desired shape and colour, making it easy to keep step with changing market demands. AMPET is cheaper than the materials which are traditionally used for pet food packaging. In addition, the packaging takes up less space in storage and in transit as it is stackable – a cost reduction reflected in the bottom line and that that benefits the environment. AMPET consists of only one type of raw material allowing it to be used repeatedly in production so that more than 99% of the raw material is used and only 1% remaining as waste.
