    They’re more than a pet

    So we put more into your packaging

    Pets are part of our families, and pet food is an emotional choice for consumers. That’s why more and more pet owners prefer brands that are distinctive—with impactful shelf or screen appeal—and offer more taste, nutrition and variety for their furry family members. Pet food companies have listened, fetching premium meal and treat options for cats and dogs of all sizes. Flexible packaging has proven to be pet owners’ second-best friend, with resealable, easy-to-store packaging that locks in the flavor pets love—and the odors pet owners could do without.

    At APC, we’ve invested in the specialized printing technologies needed to best serve this finicky market, including HPE Flexo™, HPE Roto™ and APC Digital printing. We have multiple facilities that focus on pouch and bag making, located in Story City, IA, Columbus, WI, and Cedar City, UT. Ask us about our Design for Recycle options too. Combining our award-winning, eye-catching printing with state-of-the-art pouching, you’ll have the kind of packaging that will have retailers begging for more.
