Pet food packaging is supremely important! People love their pets (us included).

Pet owners want the best and are becoming more and more aware of what goes into their bowls as a result of closely reflecting their own human diets. Product integrity, ease of use, and attractive packaging all play important roles in determining what pet food is purchased and what sits on store shelves.

What type of Pet Food Packaging do consumers prefer?
There are many different factors to consider with pet food packaging. These include:
- Large, classic bags
- Eco-Friendly Packaging
- Graphic Design and Layout
All of these have changed the industry of packaging and the marketing of pet food. There has been a rise in consumers' preference of refrigerated pet food packaging to single-serve on-the-go portions. However, there is also a preference for large, classic bags packaged in an eco-friendly manner with new materials and formats.
It is important to note that improvements in graphic design and layouts are a major focus for customer appeal. Offering flexible packaging styles for your product is the best way to stand out on crowded store shelves while also providing superior product preservation. This is especially true for protein-heavy, raw, natural, and organic pet foods to ensure a healthy shelf-life. These can all be kept up to the consumers' standards with the right machines that seal with cups and stand-up packaging.
Given the consumer interest in a wide convenience across the spectrum, many of these formats include a reclosable or resealable feature. Such packages also include windows for product transparency because buyers like to know and see the quality of the product upfront.
However, the most popular item is the single-serve or on-the-go packaging option for pet food packaging.
