Strong growth in the premium pet food market is boosting demand for advanced packaging. Pet lovers want packaging that is attractive, informative and protective, just like the packaging for any other food product.
Thanks to our broad knowledge of the pet food market and years of experience in the packaging sector, we are ideally placed to support producers of dry and wet pet food and snacks. With our complete packaging lines, you can package your products more efficiently and reduce your packaging costs.
Wet pet food
Two types of product typify the wet pet food segment: a combination of chunks with gravy, and pâté. Both products are increasingly packaged in a preformed stand-up pouch for obvious reasons: optimal flexibility, a high degree of automation, short changeover times and a shorter autoclave sterilisation process due to better heat transfer.
Dry pet food
Packaging dry pet food products is a tricky process. After cooling, cutting and coating in some cases, the flow of bulk product is channelled to the primary packaging system for filling into bags. This type of product is generally packaged in stand-up pouches.
Flow wrapping is perfect for packaging pet food snacks. The Omori flowpack machines are ideally suited to this application due to their excellent flexibility, reliability and performance. We can also provide solutions for automating the front end process.
Your partner for pet food packaging
Wet pet food (50% chunks, 50% gravy) is often packaged in pouches. Omori Europe supplies complete production lines for wet pet food. Including the gravy unit, steam tunnel and the complete packaging line with a multihead weigher and quadruplex Leepack machine capable of filling the pouches with chunks and gravy in a two-shot cycle at a speed of 160 pouches per minute.

The influence of packaging on market trends
There is not much that people will not do for their pets and this bond has become even stronger in recent years. Many studies have been conducted in order to identify trends in pet food. This prompted us to investigate the influence of packaging on pet food sales in relation to the trends we see in the market.
Several pet food manufacturers have already benefited from this collaboration.
“When we need you, we know we can rely on a good outcome”
