PET Food Processing - December 2021 - 53

" The increase in market
share for wet, fresh
and specialty foods has
been a real driver in aisle
expansion in most
big box stores. "
Maxwell Davis, Waldner North America
systems, energy savings is a consideration, especially with
batch retort systems if there is an opportunity to capitalize
on water or steam savings, " Arthur said.
Cans and pouches can also find their place in sustainable
product lines or operations.
" For many years now, there have been concerns about
cans going away, but it never seems to happen, " Arthur
said. " Especially in this type of situation in which we are
in - with the current economic climate - canned foods
are having pretty strong growth now because of their affordable,
shelf-stable properties, and people are starting to think
about how products like cans are recyclable. "
On the pouch side, Rychlewski shared, " When you're
looking at shipping empty cans in a truck going to a manufacturer,
it takes up a lot of space compared to a roll of plastic
or premade pouches. "
He also pointed out that some of the pouches he's seen
are made from more sustainable materials, adding that innovations
in pouches can also improve product quality.
Sous vide is an example of this.
While there are advances in packaging materials and
equipment designed to meet the growing and diverse needs
of today's pet food manufacturers, other traditional drivers
are also on the priority list. Efficiency is one of them.
" Especially at the highest operating speeds, the downstream
knock-on effects in packaging, seal quality, or other
defects function as exponentials, " Davis said. " The faster
your equipment operates the more important packaging
quality, product consistency and fill accuracy becomes.
We're seeing increased importance of dynamic cost analysis
that accounts for more than just the typical labor and raw
material inputs. "
Finally, food safety remains top of mind as well. Jansen
said features like sophisticated software sequencing, retort
loading via shuttle and interfacing and data connectivity
with retort suppliers help assure both the safety and quality
of pet food products.
" One hundred percent food safety has become an absolute
necessity, " Jansen said. " Especially when it comes to
sterilizing pet food, manufacturers want to be sure that contamination
can never take place. "
