Pet Care Online & E-Retail

With 8.7% of pet food sales in the UK now made online and growing year-over-year, the rapid growth of online retailing generates new demands for e-commerce packaging to promote, protect and contribute to efficient distribution at every stage of the supply chain.

A move towards bulk buying pet food online, thanks to fully resealable packs for freshness and subscription services, means the continued growth in the e-commerce space is undeniable.
