Pet Food in Pouches vs Trays - United States

Description

Pet Food in Pouches vs Trays - United States compares packaging 3 ounces of wet dog food in a retortable stand-up pouch vs. a retortable tray when operating in the USA. Our EES of PackagingTM research studies specifically focus on the Economic impact, Environmental impact, and other key variables that impact the performance of specific products, packages, and processes operating in specific locations.

Retortable pouches had great momentum in the United States until a pet food safety issue stopped the program in its tracks. Although the problem was a pet food additive issue, and had nothing to do with the packaging, retortable pouches took the hit. Retortable trays grabbed the newly available market share and held the market share tenaciously. Are retortable pouches now poised to regain momentum? Do retortable pouches or trays win the balance of strengths and weaknesses? Read this quantitative analysis and comparison to understand the current prospects.

Our SavvyPack® Index is at the heart of this analytical solution. Our SavvyPack® Index complements our SavvyPack® Analytical Service. We analyze the economic, environmental, and other variables of packaging through our Analytical Service, and we evaluate and explain the results utilizing our SavvyPack® Index.

With this new study you can:

  • Understand Pet Food Packaging in the United States
  • Understand the points of view of competing industries
  • Learn, quantitatively, how competing claims are constructed by their sponsors
  • Break free from the stalemate caused by competing claims
  • Discover a powerful and independent service and methodology designed specifically for package industry issues
