Forthglade Christmas Dog Treats

At Law Print, we have been supplying packaging to the pet food industry for over 15 years, so it is safe to say that we are quite the experts! When Forthglade decided to move their dog treats to a new partner, they knew we would deliver their packer with fantastic pouches.

Not only did we supply new recyclable PE/PE pouches for their core range of treats but we also worked on this Christmas pack. The seasonality of these treats dictated that we had to deliver the pouches in a timely manner to ensure a successful launch in stores and online.

Pouches are the ideal format for pet treats when combined with convenience features such as zippers and a mono material structure. Great for on-the-go with our furry friends, whilst helping the brand on its sustainability journey!

Founded in 1971, Forthglade is a well-established brand and leader in the natural pet food market. As with all of their food and treats, their products are completely free from junk, fillers and artificial flavours, colourants and preservatives. The Christmas addition is no exception – tasty, heart-shaped and made with natural ingredients.

Like many other brands at the moment, Forthglade packs their super treats into versatile stand-up pouches. They offer a wealth of branding space for those seasonal packaging designs, and they can also accommodate different features such as zippers and easy tear notches

The clear front window is a ‘treat’ for the eyes, as it allows the customer (and those eagle-eyed doggies) to see the product before they buy. You know what they say, we eat with our eyes first! The resealable zipper is a huge plus too as it helps to keep those yummy treats fresher for longer. Each heart-shaped treat can be broken in two for smaller dogs, or just to make them last longer. 

Stand up pouches have certainly grown in popularity over the years. The variety of closure mechanisms combined with practical improvements to shelf-life, waste and reusability strikes the perfect balance between packaging form and function. Forthglade’s 90g packs are the perfect size for dog owners, allowing for easy transport and storage.

Flexible packaging is an excellent tool for businesses looking to move to more sustainable sources whilst keeping the same format and options available for their customers. Pouches can be printed with Rotogravure up to 10 colours, which was ideal for Forthglade and the festive design they have gone with this year. Greens, whites and reds stand out beautifully, and the whole pouch is topped off with a spot matt varnish to give a high-quality result.

Law Print provided Forthglade with packaging that not only ‘works a treat’ to protect the product but also their brand, ensuring that the content keeps fresh and that the festive product is a big hit with both pets and their parents.

Made in our Ready2Recycle mono material PE/PE structure, the pouches also offer sustainable credentials, without compromising the quality of the packaging and brand appeal.

Seasonal packaging can feel like a daunting task, especially when it’s advisable to prepare so far in advance. However, we’re well-versed in projects that require a little planning. So if you have come across this case study and are wondering whether it’s time to get started, chances are it probably is. So give us a call and get organised, just as Forthglade did.


Working with a new brand like Forthglade is always exciting. Seasonal packaging means that we need to ensure that the pouches are delivered on time to maximise sales for Forthglade, so time is of the essence. The expectations are not just about delivering a good quality pouch but it’s also about demonstrating key skills that you need from a reliable packaging partner – excellent project management and efficient logistics.
