Zip-Pak Rolls Out Resealable Pet Food Options
Zip-Pak introduced four resealable solutions for pet foods that enhance consumers’ handling of pet food containers.
Sensus—Sensory Feedback Fasteners—feature performance characteristics that appeal to a consumer’s sense of sound, sight, smell or touch. The re-closure profile is specifically designed to create a tactile bumping sensation and audible clicking noise when the zipper is opened or resealed, providing assurance that their flexible package has firmly been sealed. And pets, with a heightened sense of sound, will “hear” that it’s time to eat.
Vector, a self-mating resealable closure, is said to be an ideal closure for a wide range of pet products thanks to a resealable matrix pattern that is easier to align and has superior air-seal capabilities. Vector also delivers a more vivid tactile response, assuring consumers of a tight seal upon opening, closing, and storage.
Pour & Lok is a resealable packaging solution that combines easy opening with pour spout functionality. A press-to-close, foldable zipper is pre-applied to film in the side gusset, creating a partial opening that forms the package’s easy-to-use resealable pour spout.
The DoubleZip, a popular and proven solution in the Zip-Pak Press-to-Close family of resealable closures, provides consumers with an easy way to achieve a complete seal with every use of a pet food product. Extensive research indicates that consumers prefer DoubleZip over packages with standard single track zippers.
