St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 15, 2014
C.L Smith has recently been recognized for two creative packaging awards. NACD (National Association of Container Distributors) has awarded the one of a kind Actual Fruit Cup the Bronze level award in the Food segment for the Packages of the Year Awards. Also recognizing the Actual Fruit Cup was Food and Beverage Packaging for excellence in the Rigid Plastic category for the Best of Food and Beverages Packages of the Year 2014.
The Actual Fruit Cup was designed in collaboration with Tom Lange Company, a global distributor of fruits and vegetables. “This collaboration required multiple companies coming together seamlessly to produce an innovative product that attracts the grab ‘n go market,” says Nancy Newby President of C.L Smith. All the players involved were inspired to achieve the same goal; customer success and growth of the Actual Fruit cup as a new entrant in this fast growing industry.
About the Product- The five ounce, 1 serving fruit cup container is small but has character. The label resembles a green smiling face and a very eye appealing design. As the product is consumed, the reverse side of the label is revealed to the consumer with a message of, “EAT. SMILE. REPEAT.” The appealing design of the container has purpose as well. The container’s side walls curve inward for ease in holding, a critical feature for a grab ‘n go product. The lid has several unique features including an easy to pull opening tab and an indentation for cup stack ability which maximizes retail shelf space. The container is made out of recycled plastic. The bottom mold of the cup is specially designed to separate the fruit juice from the fruit for extended fruit freshness. The five ounce container fits well in a standard cup holder and is portable for the active lifestyle. The Actual Fruit Cups are being sold at select Target® stores, in the states of IN, IL, MI, MN, WI, IA, MO, NE, SD, ND, WA, OR, and CA.
Tom Lange Company has been building a Global Produce Network to provide a full line of the finest fruits and vegetables available.
