The reliable steel can has been one of the primary pet food container for years. Today is no exception, but now, companies like Heinz Pet Products are making sure consumers know that the can itself has many wonderful benefits, just like its contents.
“Until recently, packaging disposal wasn’t really an issue for consumers,” said William R. Johnson, President and CEO of Heinz Pet Products. “Packaging must protect the product and enhance use and appearance, but it has always been something to open and throw away. But today, it’s different ... and rightly so. We care about our company’s impact on the environment, just as we care about the quality of our products, so it’s important to us to let people know that our steel pet food cans are 100% recyclable.”
Over the next year, shoppers will see the steel recycling logo on the following Heinz canned pet food products: 9 Lives Cat Food, Kozy Kitten Cat Food, Amore Cat Food, Vet’s Dog Food, Skippy Premium Dog Food, and Recipe Dog Food.
In addition to these brands, the following Heinz private label pet food cans will also display the logo: Walmart, Giant Foods, and Shur Fine. Heinz Pet Products has been working with private label customers and retailers to help ensure that they, too, promote environmental responsibility by placing the recycling logo on their steel pet food cans.
“Solid waste is everyone’s problem and recycling is a primary solution. We must all direct ourselves to it,” said William R. Johnson of Heinz Pet Products.
