Pet Food Lidding Solutions That Meet Strict Requirements
The pet food industry has seen tremendous growth in recent years in regard to market demand for single-serve pet food containers and the humanization and premiumization of this industry. Consumers who purchase premium products expect a premium “people food” experience. The demand and inclusion of new fresh and wet pet foods has led to a greater need for sterile retort packaging made from materials capable of keeping perishable foods safe for our furry companions. In order to ensure a long shelf life, wet pet food must be processed in the packaging at a high temperature and pressure. Pet Food lidding must withstand these processing conditions and provide a hermetic seal all while maintaining the aesthetics of the printed graphics. Plus, the interaction of the ink and the lid substrate is critical – at LMI, we understand the complexities of ensuring that your packaging and brand stands up to the rigorous packing process in your production facilities and have the necessary printing state of the art equipment, plus in house lab testing, in place to take your brand to market.

We strategically develop lid solutions to optimize packaging processes for fully-cooked, thermo-stabilized, high-caloric meals.
