Shelf stable, Earth-safe pet food packaging

Innovation for a healthier pet and healthier planet.

Here’s the thing about animal lovers—they tend to love all animals, not just their own. Emmerson Packaging is committed to reducing our environmental footprint, and your customers appreciate that kind of consideration from the top down.

Our innovative PetPack-BDG™ is completely biodegradable, and completely shelf-stable. Active landfills have unique conditions which trigger the breakdown of the bag. Retail shelves and consumers’ homes do not. Even moist or wet pet food is safe in PetPack-BDG™.

When consumers are finished with the PetPack-BDG™, they simply put it in with their regular garbage. Once it reaches the landfill, the biodegradation process begins, leaving behind biomass and methane gas, a source of clean energy.

PetPack-BDG™ is also fully recyclable, so no matter how consumers choose to dispose of the package, it will have a positive environmental effect.
