    Mid-Atlantic Packaging at the Summer Fancy Food Show

    The Mid-Atlantic Packaging sales team recently attended the Fancy Food Show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. Lori Bruno, John Pender, Keenan Christiansen and Geoff Slick continued to establish Mid-Atlantic Packaging as the corrugated industry leader in innovative food packaging and merchandising.

    Retail Ready Packaging continues to be a hot topic at the Fancy Food Show as more food manufacturers are pouching their products at retail and need an effective way to ship and merchandise in a single solution.

    Additionally, many companies were looking for stable and labor-reducing club channel pallet merchandising solutions, so the Mid-Atlantic Packaging Stretch and Slide designs were also very well received by current and potential customers at the show.

    The team also was invited to provide insights to a contingent of food manufacturers from Chile, by the Chilean Trade Commission, a.k.a. ProChile.

    At this event, Geoff Slick spoke to the manufacturers at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square about targeting consumers, retail ready packaging, retail trends, compliance, testing, and shipping. Geoff’s remarks will hopefully help them to navigate a smoother road to the shelf in the highly competitive U.S. retail food marketplace.

    Mid-Atlantic Packaging Attends Inaugural ‘All Star’ Craft Beer and Wine Festival at Citizens Bank Park

    The inaugural All Star Craft Beer and Wine Festival was held Saturday, May 20, 2017, at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. More than 11,000 attendees soaked in the perfect weather while also soaking up over 200 different product offerings from both national and local microbreweries, craft distillers and wineries.

    MAP Booth

     

    Guests had the opportunity to clown it up with the Phillie Phanatic, run the bases in a real big-league ball park while listening to great live music from local acts. Those in attendance also had the opportunity to polish up their beer IQ with beer education seminars held throughout the day.

    Charity

    Attendees also supported two great charities: The Barkann Family Healing Hearts Foundation whose mission is to provide financial aid to families who are in need, due to recent adversity or tragedy such as sudden death or illness of a parent or child or the loss of a home or property due to fire, flood or disaster. Other proceeds were also donated to the Fraternal Order of Police Survivors Fund that helps families of fallen officers.

    Fun and Games

    Mid-Atlantic Packaging was on-hand not only to meet with vendors and distributors but also to have a little fun! Our team set up a Cards Against Humanity Wheel in our booth where we played a version of the irreverent card game with visitors and awarded some amazing prizes for the best answers!

    Among the prizes were:
    * Four cans of Heady Topper, a premium double IPA made by The Alchemist Brewery of Stowe, Vermont
    * Phillies merchandise
    * Liberty Bell and Philadelphia-themed displays to show off bottle cap collections
    * A decorative print featuring a reproduction of the original patent for the baseball glove

    In addition to meeting with lots of fun people, MAP also had an opportunity to show off some of the work we’ve done for existing clients in the beer, wine and distilling industries.

    One of the most popular displays was our five-color packaging which showcases our ability to design visually arresting and functional packaging for beer in both cans and bottles. We also showed off full display options for craft breweries, distinctive wineries and premium distillers.

    We had a great time and can’t wait for next year!
