PET Food Processing - September 2020 - 57

by the German pet food company
Mera, it is the largest bag of its kind
for pet foods and features a recloseable zipper.
Reusable containers are part of
a circular economy, too. Through
the Loop program developed by
Trenton, N.J.-based TerraCycle,
consumers can buy select brands
of pet foods that are sent to them
in durable containers that can be
returned, refilled and reused. Mars
Petcare, for instance, offers Perfect
Fit products in stainless steel round
containers through Loop. Open
Farm also recently added three
freeze-dried dog diets in stainlesssteel packaging that are available
through Loop.
Other types of pet products can
be paired with reusable packaging.
For example, Bauer points to efforts to sell kitty litter in bulk, with
people bringing in reusable containers to fill.
Finally, brands are minimizing
their environmental footprint in
other ways, such as internal sustainability improvements. Purina
announced in July that the company has achieved 100% zero waste
for disposal across factories and
headquarters locations.
"Achieving zero waste for disposal means that all 21 of Purina's
manufacturing sites and its St.
Louis headquarters have found
ways to derive benefits from materials that would have otherwise
been discarded," Herndon said.
"All locations now recycle, reuse,
recover or compost waste from
daily operations."
Brands are also getting active
on the advocacy front. Purina is
a founding member of Materials
Recovery for the Future, a project
promoting a circular economy and
stronger recycling infrastructure.
Mars Petcare is also working to incentivize recycling systems by supporting efforts to improve collecting, sorting and recycling.

"There are a lot of environmental
and social challenges that fall under
the umbrella of sustainability that
COVID has brought attention to."
