Hydropac, a leading provider of temperature-controlled packaging solutions, is taking steps to improve pet food cold chain logistics with its innovative ice pack sealing technology.

Temperature-controlled shipping plays a crucial role in ensuring nutritional integrity, preventing spoilage and maintaining the overall product quality of pet food during transportation, especially for products that are sensitive to temperature fluctuations.

Hydropac ice packs offer enhanced insulation, extended cooling duration and improved leak resistance. While conventional manufacturing techniques involve creating ice packs in tube forms and filling them with liquid, Hydropac’s ice pack process brings two layers of material together. The company’s meticulous sealing technique, then seals all four sides of the ice pack allowing multiple pockets to be created within each ice pack, providing precise control over dimensions, including length and width.

Unlike conventional ice packs, where certain areas might become excessively cold while others remain warmer, the ice pack design ensures that products are evenly chilled, so the desired temperature range is consistently maintained, preserving freshness and nutritional value.

"Our innovation in ice pack sealing technology is designed to address the specific challenges faced by the many industries that rely on quality and efficient cold chain transportation,” said Cat Mitton, Hydropac’s customer experience manager. “With pet owners increasingly prioritizing the health and well-being of their furry companions, it's crucial for the pet food industry to uphold stringent standards in product safety and quality assurance and this includes transportation and packaging.”

Hydropac's ice pack sealing technology is compatible with a wide range of packaging formats and can be customized to meet the unique requirements of pet food manufacturers and distributors, ensuring consistent temperature control throughout the entire supply chain.
