Packaging is important...from the name to logo design to the ultimate packaging container. What your product looks like is as important as how it tastes.

Things to consider:

  •     Will the packaging increase the visibility?
  •     Will it improve the shelf life?
  •     Will it fit on the store shelves nicely?
  •     Can it ship safely to a customer?
  •     Where to spend your hard earned dollars to best effect!

Our speakers are from:

 **AllBoxes Direct (AllBoxesNY.com) a purveyor of a full line of corrugated boxes and packaging supplies.

**Periship  (http://www2.periship.com) a shipping company that manages and protects perishables

They will discuss your specific issues with you as they describe what they have learned as packing experts in the food industry.

Bring your products and current packaging for evaluation if you want, or just listen and see the samples they will be bringing.
