In 2016 we started a new endeavour in pet food, investing in a state-of-the art plant, with a line to make pouches. Now, we have several lines and we are supplying the most relevant pet food brands in the European market. We deliver to 70 sites in 8 countries.
At Zermatt we understand that a pet is a member of the family, and therefore not only must its food be of the highest quality, but also the packaging this food comes in. And this quality is exactly what our pet food bags provide. Manufactured to maximise the use of space, they do not transmit odours and maintain the product in perfect condition ensuring its quality. They can be manufactured to be resealable closure, 100% airtight or with handles for ease of carrying. Their characteristics make them perfect for the storage of other types of products, such as food and nutritional products.
Obviously, at Zermatt we have never been oblivious to environmental concerns. That is why we are not only strict in complying with regulations, but we take things a step further by investigating, for example, new combinations of materials that allow us to reduce the thickness of flexible bags and packaging, and therefore, the amount of material used.
Also, we analyze and invest on new monomaterial MDO lines, to achieve new standards of recyclability on all kinds of packaging.
Packaging was constantly evolving and the market was becoming increasingly competitive, which led us to focus on the research and innovation of new products. Our success in turn led us to expand our operational capacity with the opening of a new plant in Illescas and with the incorporation of 10-colour presses, which represented a huge leap in print quality.
We are a packaging manufacturer founded in 1970 with a very clear objective: to be leaders in the market by providing flexibility in our services and innovation in our products.
Our business started in Fuenlabrada with the manufacture of polyethylene bags for food and textile stores, bags that were initially printed using only 2 inks.
The first industrial customers began to arrive soon after, demanding not only a higher quality of printing, but also the manufacture of more consistent materials for use in automated packaging machines. Our response to that demand was to incorporate 8-ink printing lines and 3-layer coextruders.
