High Quality Packaging for Premium Brands

Give Your Customers the Premium Experience from Shelf to End-of-Life

Your brand has put in the work to develop the highest quality, most nutritious, freshest food for your customers’ beloved pets. Don’t hide your premium product behind sub-par packaging—convey its value with premium packaging to match.

Pet owners demand convenient packaging that is easy to carry, easy to open and close, and keeps food safe and fresh for the life of the product. Premium packaging helps them make the most of their carefully-considered investment in their pet.

Protect yourself from brand-damaging recalls with superior barrier control. Our flexible bags don’t just look incredible on the shelf—they are designed to offer exceptional performance during packing and distribution.

Sustainable Pet Food Packaging

Environmentally Friendly Pet Food Packaging That Doesn’t Sacrifice Quality, Safety, or Design

We’ve set lofty sustainability goals to help you reach yours. Our award-winning PetPack—BDG™ technology is shelf-stable, environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and appealing to eco-conscious pet owners. It is truly biodegradable, and will only begin to break down in an active landfill environment. Moist or wet pet foods will not trigger the biodegradation process.

If recyclability is important to your brand and your customers, Emmerson Packaging also offers a recyclable flexible bag and a biodegradable/recyclable flexible bag, with a full range of features and options. Click here to see our full line of sustainable and green packaging options.

You don’t have to sacrifice print quality, barrier control, or overall package performance to give your customers the environmentally friendly options they demand. Finally, premium performance and premium sustainability are available in one package.

Our manufacturing facilities have long concentrated on sustainability initiatives. Since the year 2000, per foot shipped, Emmerson Packaging’s facilities have:

  • Reduced our residual solid waste by 87%
  • Lowered our water usage more than 78%
  • Reduced electricity usage by 41%
  • Reduced VOC emissions by over 55%
  • Become a certified SGP Printer—the first ever in Canada.
