Troy Snader Leads Discussion on Green Packaging Initiatives at Petfood Forum 2022

Troy Snader, Senior Vice President of Business Development for ProMach’s Secondary Packaging Group, will present a Tech Talk on the state of green initiatives for petfood packaging at 10:45 a.m. May 4, at Petfood Forum, at the Kansas City Convention Center, Kansas City, Missouri.

While there are numerous green or holistic choices when it comes to petfood, there is a substantial push underway to extend green attributes to petfood packaging as well. This is the basis of Snader’s Tech Talk presentation: Compostable/Recyclable Materials and Machinery Compatibility – Choices and Options.

The discussion Snader will lead focuses on compostable materials, primarily PE (polyethylene), and PET (polyethylene terephthalate), and sealing methods for handling these materials. The discussion includes details on film path and pulling, stretching and registration considerations, gas flushing and hermiticity, as well as sealing and cooling methods for presentable petfood packaging.

Matrix Packaging Machinery, a ProMach brand, is an industry-leading manufacturer of vertical form fill seal machines for pet care and numerous other industries. Matrix is the master distributor of global flexible packaging brands INVpack, Pacraft, and its newest addition, Cetec Industrie, which excels in packaging machinery to fill larger bags of pet food/cat litter, and other pet care products between 10lbs and 50lbs.

Matrix builds packaging machines that can run green films that are sustainable, compostable, and recyclable. The company works closely with its petfood customers to provide packaging systems that accomplish their sustainability goals. Matrix will be exhibiting in booth 2818 at Petfood Forum. In addition to Matrix, three other ProMach brands (Brenton, Ossid, and Quest) will be exhibiting at Petfood Forum.
