Pet owners, increasingly conscious of their ecological footprint, prefer packaging materials that are recyclable and pose minimal harm to the environment. Paper and paperboard meet these criteria, making them an attractive choice for pet food manufacturers appealing to environmentally conscious consumers.

They are recyclable, aligning with the growing consumer demand for sustainable, eco-friendly packaging options. Metal cans are tamper-evident and have a premium aesthetic appeal, making them suitable for premium and specialty pet food products. As pet owners increasingly prioritize the health and well-being of their pets, the preservation and sustainability of metal cans contribute to their significant growth in the pet food packaging market.
