Euromonitor International recently released its Global Metal Food Can Packaging: Avenues of Growth in Canned Pet Food report.
Key findings in the report include the following: continuing urbanization and rising disposable incomes are serving to stimulate sales of canned foods; the often more affordable retail prices of many canned/preserved food products have led to renewed interest; and the shift to single serve is evident in premium petfood, driving increased sales of small-sized pouches, aluminum trays and food cans.
