The dry offset printing process used 7 different colors.

Finally, Trivium took home Bronze in the Sustainability category for Doothie – a smoothie drink for dogs. Produced for Petcura Gmbh as part of Tönnies Holding ApS & Co. KG, the can is a three-piece welded tinplate with a 52mm EOE produced out of Trivium Hungary. The “smoothie” is a liquid food supplement for dogs, introduced in the first quarter of 2022. It comes in a range of flavors which all address different nutritional needs.

Because all components of the can are made out of tinplate, the packaging is fully recyclable and will recycle forever.
