Distinctive packaging that provides the highest degree of protection is becoming vital to success in the competitive wet pet food market. With a variety of shapes, sizes, closures and decorations, we deliver 100% infinitely recyclable packaging solutions that drive value and differentiation for your brand.
Our product portfolio for wet pet foods includes three-piece and two-piece steel and aluminium cans in a range of shapes and sizes that can be adapted to various pet food products. Conical shapes are particularly popular for pet food due to their stack-ability and logistic efficiencies.
Standard sizes range from 63mm to 99mm in diameter with heights from 24mm to 175mm.
We also offer Easy Peel™ and ends in different diameters and shapes with full-colour printing. Our peelable closures are ideal for pet food products as the flexible foil withstands pressure in different retort conditions.
We lead the industry in our commitment to, and investment in, new shaping and printing technologies. Our in-house graphic centres provide a multitude of award-winning decorative techniques that add distinction to your pet food packaging.
Our specialists work with you to define the most suitable specifications for every project.
Our R&D Centre employs close to 100 scientists that work with our customers to focus on innovations that drive growth in the market.
They also conduct rigorous research of metals and coatings with techniques such as accelerated shelf-life testing and downgauging.
We are at the forefront of innovative production methods such as Draw and Wall Ironing (DWI), an advanced metal can-making process. Our state-of-the-art two- and three-piece DRD equipment can support short run packaging, including full-colour printing. And, our experienced technical service teams provide support for all aspects of can filling, seaming and processing.
Our aluminium and steel cans provide the ultimate in protection and preservation for wet pet foods. Impermeable and unbreakable, metal cans from Trivium are easy to handle and have a long shelf life. Plus, they are heat- and puncture-resistant and completely impervious to oxygen, light, and bacteria.
Metal gives you a truly sustainable solution: it’s considered a permanent material and is part of a circular economy in which materials can be infinitely recycled without loss of quality.
Butcher’s Pet Care, a leading British pet food manufacturer, is committed to protecting the health of dogs with naturally nourishing food, and the environment with sustainable packaging.
Butcher’s has replaced the plastic shrink-wrap packaging on its multipack cans with recyclable and biodegradable cardboard, while retaining its commitment to metal cans produced by Trivium. In fact, the sustainability of the cans is an important part of Butcher’s environmental pledge, which states: “…Our cans are infinitely recyclable forever. These metals can be easily and sustainably turned into new materials, like car parts, bicycles or even more cans!”
“We know that reducing plastic packaging waste is a key concern for consumers,” said Rachel Collinson, Director of Food for Dogs at Butcher’s Pet Care. “We also appreciate the environmental credentials of the metal can, which is so easy to take for granted.”
