Flexible packaging is quite often the name of the game when it comes to pet food. When we talk about “pet food”, this includes a wide variety of products, including dry kibble, wet foods, rawhide treats, and so much more.

Wet and Dry Food Packaging Equipment
Whether your business produces one kind of pet food or a whole line of products, it’s crucial to understand what type of equipment is going to best serve your needs. If you are packaging wet pet food, there is a higher consideration for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), and vacuum sealing capabilities. Machines that can handle these requirements include:
- VFFS/HFFS Equipment
- Rollstock Packaging Equipment
- Chamber Vacuum Sealers
- Pouch Filling Equipment
Dry pet foods like kibble and biscuits require different capabilities for filling and sealing. Stand-up pouches are a common solution for these types of products. The required volume and level of production are details that are of high importance when determining the right pet food packaging equipment. Some equipment options that may be suitable for this type of operation include:
- Continuous Band-sealer
- Rotary Pouch Fillers
- Scaling/Weighing Systems
- Linear Pouch Fillers
