Tropical Traditions To Offer New Packaging
Tropical Traditions recently partnered with Landaal Packaging Systems to offer sustainable packaging for grass-fed meat and dairy products. Tropical Traditions was searching for a way to avoid polystyrene shipping containers for their products and found a better environmental option.
"We were searching for an option to replace the common polystyrene coolers for a temperature-controlled package for our refrigerated products," said Jon Leever, director of Business Development for Tropical Traditions. "Landaal was able to provide us with an excellent replacement; a packaging foam product that is biodegradable, and compostable. The thermal protection is comparable to polystyrene packaging.
Leever added that Tropical Traditions customers have been very pleased with the environmentally friendly packaging. He says because the new packaging is biodegradable it is a far better option in maintaining a clean environment when compared with polystyrene.
Beef Jerky Packaging Renaissance
Tropical Traditions is not the only company changing its meat packaging. Numerous beef jerky companies are rolling out new images.
Jack Link's is offering new white packaging in place of its traditional red to try to appeal more to women, Krave is rolling out new packaging for its Sweet Chipotle and Pineapple Orange flavors and Slim Jim recently launched its Steakhouse product line.
