It’s no secret Americans love their pets, and grocery stores shelves hold a dazzling array of brands and package types. Metal is the number-one choice for pet food manufacturers in the U.S. (see chart). Sixty-seven percent of dog and cat food packaged in the U.S. comes in cans, with 23% coming in flexible packaging. Paper-based packaging and rigid plastic make up the last ten percent.
Top dog and cat food brands like Blue Buffalo, Mars and Nestle deliver consistency to the consumer with efficient process and packaging lines.
