Faerch Plast launched a range of products for packaging petfoods that are a low cost environmental alternative to tins, according to the company.
The containers are produced from Ampet, an ambient polyethylene material developed by Faerch Plast for the packaging of ambient products. The company claims its new containers allow more than 99% of the raw material to be reused with only 1% waste. The new packaging material is lightweight and does not taint the taste of the petfood, according to the manufacturer.
