Unique low economical price for 500 or more custom cartons engaged the artisanal food manufacturers 

SoOPAK, a leading short-run offset North American packaging specialist, displayed its innovative food packaging samples and its superb print capabilities to the largest crowd ever at the Summer Fancy Food Show at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City in late June. The show, presented by the Specialty Food Association, posted the largest number of exhibit space since it was established in 1954 with more than 2,670 exhibitors filling the halls with the latest in specialty food and beverages from across the U.S. and 55 countries with more than 47,000 specialty food professionals spanning the equivalent of six football fields.

“This is our second year at the Summer Fancy Food Show and it was a triumphant success for SoOPAK to reach this many potential customers,” says YaJun (Carol) Jiang, president of SoOPAK. “While artisanal food manufacturers are proud of what they’ve produced for the market, it’s just as important to make sure that the food is delivered in a secure package that mirrors the manufacturer’s message and entices the buyer to try the food. We understand that their products are carefully crafted and we want our packaging to carefully protect it. Packaging is just as important as the product inside. We have a strong reputation working with our customers and tailoring specific solutions to fit their specific needs. Being at the show allows us to talk directly to these artisanal food manufacturers who have questions on what is the best, most economical, and most enticing packaging that they can use. The show allows us to reflect our company’s commitment to fulfilling a critical need in this fast-growing market.”

Since SoOPAK was one of the few vendors offering an economical short-run packaging solution to artisanal food manufacturers, its booth was a magnet for those looking for a dynamic, creative, efficient method of safely and quickly transporting all different types of food to the marketplace. These manufacturers, who are known for small custom quantities, paid rapt attention to SoOPAK’s short-run capability, its ability to produce as little as 500 boxes, plus its expedient 15 day turnaround or as short as five to 10 days with rush turnaround. In today’s competitive market, brand owners want to enhance sales by starting with engaging packaging, bright creative designs and innovative ideas that will generate maximum shelf-appeal. To answer those critical needs, SoOPAK offers custom sizes, styles, and artwork to ensure that a product stands out above the others and all at an economical price with no die or plate charges. 

The show provided SoOPAK with the forum to demonstrate its innovation and excellence to food manufacturers who are seeking impactful designs for their food creations. The firm proudly displayed an array of its unique packaging. Its large collection of boxes includes custom-branded beverage packaging, high-quality bakery, cake, candy and chocolate packaging, as well as creative yet sturdy designs. SoOPAK provides a broad choice of packaging solutions that allow for maximum display and security, provide elegant housing options, and convey the top-quality and luxurious feel of the product within.

“This particular show is a perfect fit for our packaging solutions. These manufacturers need small yet complex packages for their products and we can partner with them to increase their speed to market,” says Jiang. “We were delighted to meet so many innovative and exciting food and beverage manufacturers at the show and talk to them about how our latest packaging solutions can bring their products to the market and catch the consumer’s eye.”
