Hill’s Brand Horizon

Our goal: 100% recyclable packaging by 2025

Hill’s is one of the first major pet food manufacturers globally to switch to completely recyclable dry pet food packaging. This breakthrough recyclable material was co-developed with our bag suppliers, and we will roll it out in 2021 for our brand Vet Essentials in Europe.
