Discover Our Range of Shapes, Sizes and Openings
Our product portfolio for wet pet foods includes 3-piece and 2-piece steel and aluminum cans in a range of shapes and sizes that can be adapted to various pet food products. Conical shapes are particularly popular for pet food due to their stack-ability and logistic efficiencies.
Standard sizes range from 63 mm to 99 mm in diameter with heights from 24 mm to 175 mm.
We also offer Easy Peel® and Easy Opening ends with full-colour printing and in different diameters and shapes. Our peelable closures are ideal for pet food products as the flexible foil withstands pressure in different retort conditions.
Full Support and Scalable Capacity
Our R&D Centre employs close to 100 scientists that work with our customers to focus on innovations that drive growth in the market.
They also conduct rigorous research of metals and coatings with techniques such as accelerated shelf life testing. Our full-colour printing machines use the latest technologies to deliver distinctive decorative effects and we give you the opportunity to see your design on one of our cans through our online 3D Studio.
We are at the forefront of innovative production methods such as Draw and Wall Ironing (DWI), an advanced metal can-making process. Our state-of-the-art 2- and 3-piece DRD equipment can support short run packaging runs, including full-colour printing. And, our experienced technical service teams provide 24/7 support for all aspects of can filling, seaming and processing.
Metal Cans Support Butcher’s Commitment to Sustainability
Butcher’s Pet Care, a leading British Pet Food manufacturer, is committed to protecting the health of dogs with naturally nourishing food, and the environment with sustainable packaging.
Butcher’s has replaced the plastic shrink wrap packaging on its multipacked cans with recyclable and biodegradable cardboard, while retaining its commitment to metal cans produced by Trivium. In fact, the sustainability of the cans is an important part of Butcher’s environmental pledge, which states: “…..Our cans are infinitely recyclable forever. These metals can be easily and sustainably turned into new materials, like car parts, bicycles or even more cans!”
“We know that reducing plastic packaging waste is a key concern for consumers,” said Rachel Collinson, Director – Food for Dogs at Butcher’s Pet Care. “We also appreciate the environmental credentials of the metal can, which is so easy to take for granted.”
