UK-based food packaging company Colpac has created a packaging and sealing machinery solution for pet food brand Hug Pet Foods.
As part of the partnership, Colpac customised its recyclable Stagione range to create a ‘future-proof’ solution.
Stagione products are stackable and support both freezing and microwave heating, while their rigid roll-top construction makes them suitable for pet food applications.
Hug Pet Foods is using the Stagione range for its smaller 225ml and 450ml Souper Pots with sleeves for cat food.
Colpac and Hug initially worked on the sealing of the Stagione bases.
Colpac marketing and product head Kate Berry said: “When it comes to feeding healthy, happy pets, Hug Pet Foods don’t believe in compromise.
“Colpac are well-placed to meet this approach as we can customise our ranges to meet the specific needs of our customers.
“Our Stagione range is highly versatile and meets the complex needs of manufacturers with a range of different dishes.”
Colpac manufactured the recyclable Stagione range using mixed board certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
The board meets the coating levels for the Confederation of Paper Industries (CPI) and On-Pack Recycling Label’s (OPRL) recyclability thresholds.
Colpac has expanded the size of the Stagione range last year following its successful performance.
It is now available in seven different sizes, ranging from 150ml to 1,250ml.
Hug Pet Foods is a premium producer of whole food for cats and dogs in the UK.
The company’s products are intended to maximise pets’ quality of life and are sold both online and at pet food stores across the UK.
In April 2019, Colpac launched its first fully recyclable travel packaging range at the World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE) in Hannover, Germany.
Available in 19 different formats, the recyclable travel packaging range is designed to fit aeroplane trays or replace trolley storage trays.
