R
ecovery or no recovery,
the Canadian economy
is having a real hard
time replacing the huge number of jobs that vanished in the
Great Recession. And while there is a measure of
comfort in seeing the official unemployment rate
dip slightly to 6.6 per cent last month, according to
Statistics Canada, it’s cold comfort at best in light
of the fact that it was new part-time jobs driving
the rate down, as another 11,800 full-time jobs bit
the dust since start of 2015.
Alas, early anecdotal evidence suggests there is
more pain on the way in months ahead­, based on the
17,000 positions eliminated in the wake of retailing giant Target’s hasty retreat from the Canadian
market; the uncertainty over future job prospects of
670 people employed at five Cascades paperboard
plants sold to the U.S. based Graphic Packaging;
the nearly 400 jobs to be lost in Toronto with the
announced closing of the Wrigley Canada chewing gum factory in a year’s time; the possibly epic
shakeup in the natural resources sector due to the
sudden oil price collapse ... it all makes it very challenging to remain a glass-half-full kind of guy.
For all that, hardly a month seems to go by without one industry or another complaining about job
vacancies going begging. In value-added manufacturing sectors, it’s all about not having enough
Canadians with the required high-tech skillsets
forcing their potential employers to look offshore
to fill their staffing requirements.
Out in the country’s farm fields, on the other
hand, perfectly good crops turn to waste every
growing season because farm operators can’t get
their hands on enough people to pick them, accord-

We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through
the Canada Periodical Fund of the Department of Canadian Heritage for our
publishing activities. Canadian Packaging is indexed in the Canadian Magazine Index by Micromedia Limited. Back copies are available in microform

ing to Ron Lemaire, president of the 90-year-old
Canadian Produce Marketing Association
(CPMA) in Ottawa.
Canadians don’t want these jobs because it’s
pretty hard manual labor, while foreign workers who would take these jobs in a heartbeat can’t
come to Canada because of bureaucratic bungling
by our federal immigration authorities, Lemaire
told Canadian Packaging in recent interview. (See
more on CPMA activities on page 22)
“In Quebec last year, there was an estimated $30
million worth of product left in the field because
we didn’t have the sufficient manpower to pick it,”
Lemaire laments. “This has negative downstream
impact on the supply-demand model—increasing
the cost of product and becoming a supply chain
issue for retailers who don’t have product available
for customers who want locally-sourced produce.
“For the most part, Canadians are not interested
in the hard labor involved in picking crops and
getting the product out of the fields,” says Lemaire,
“That’s why we need an improved and stabilized
foreign worker program,” says Lemaire, pointing
out that the modern prosperous consumer society
in Canada has its very roots in exactly these types
of programs.
“Throughout our history, traditional farm labor
has been done by immigrants coming to Canada to
build a new better life,” Lemaire states.
“Foreign labor is a vital piece for agriculture in
Canada in making sure Canadians have access to
healthy and cost-effective food,” Lemaire asserts.
“It’s all great having someone plant it and grow it
all, but if you can’t pick it, it just sits there and rots,”
Lemaire concludes.
No better time for stopping that rot than now.

BOLD ASIAN FLAVORS INSPIRE PACKAGING
INNOVATION FOR HEALTHY MEAL SOLUTIONS
Eating your healthy daily quota of vegetables does
not have to be a chore or inconvenience when you
have products like the Fresh Attitude Asian-Style
Stir Fry kits within easy
reach.
Launched at refrigerated produce sections
of major grocery chains
in Ontario and Quebec
last month, these readyto-heat
individ­ual
meals—offered in exciting General Tao, Sweet & Sour, Teriyaki and Thai
f lavors—are claimed to be the only products of its
type featuring fresh vegetables grown in season,
according to the Fresh Attitude brand-owner Veg
Pro International Inc.
Offering freshness, texture and taste
that can’t be rivaled by anything in
the frozen-food aisles, the new kits are
processed on year-round basis at the
company’s central processing facility
in Sherrington, Que., and packaged
in special microwavable bowls—specifically engineered for this
product
line—that
also double as serving
bowls.
Featuring crunchy
vegetables and brassicas, crispy toppings
and exclusive gourmet
sauces to give each f lavor
its distinct and authentic taste profile, the Asian-Style Stir Fry bowls—
manufactured by IMS Plastics in
Sherbrooke, Que.—utilize their
unique design to facilitate ideal steam
cooking in the microwave, thereby
preserving
the
ingredients’ nutritional value and
eliminating the
use of fat.
Because
the
vegetables
are
not precooked, it
is up to the consumer to choose the
desired cooking level, which is nearly
impossible within frozen meals.
The cooking instructions displayed
at the back of the lid recommend
heating the meal for two minutes,
after which, the consumer who prefers
vegetables a little less al dente can put
the dish back in the microwave oven for a few
additional minutes.
“The vegetables’
freshness is the
main attraction of
these Stir fries—well
ahead of the frozen
products whose texture,
taste and crunchiness are often so disappointing,” says Luc Wan Winden,
head of R&D (research-and-development) at Veg Pro International.
“The ingenious packaging ensures a
completely controlled atmosphere of
JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2015
the vegetables section, setting the product’s shelflife at 12 days after processing,” Wan Winden
explains. “Toppings are also isolated within an
insert with individual
cavities, which maintains them in their
respective controlled
atmospheres.
“Combined,
these
two elements guarantee a crisp texture that
will please consumers
each and every time,” says Wan Winden, adding that each bowl provides the equivalent of four
servings of vegetables.

KEEPSAKE GIFT-PACKS CAPTURE ROMANCE OF THE OCCASION IN STYLE
As a time to celebrate love, romance and affection,
Valentine’s Day has no equal, and neither does a
nifty new, limited-time gift-pack celebrating two
of Canada’s most beloved indulgences: namely
chocolates and beer.
Launched at the LCBO (Liquor Control Board
of Ontario) outlets in mid-January, the somewhat off beat combination brings together the
popular Steam Whistle
Pilsner
brand
beer—made by
Toronto’s leading craft-brewer
Steam Whistle
Brewing—and
hand-crafted
pieces of pilsnerinfused chocolate
bites and truff les
from Toronto’s
renowned fine
desserts
purveyor
Duff let Pastries.
Although the gift-pack doesn’t specifically say
Valentine’s with red hearts or Cupid graphics on
the packaging, there’s no denying its romantic
overtures with
a bold offering of six signature-green
glass bottles of
Steam Whistle
and
eight
pieces of artisan
chocolate packed in a collectible tin attached to the
special-themed beer-pack.
As with the proliferation of styles and f lavor
mash-ups in craft beer, chocolate has enjoyed the
same level of
exploration
of
late, with chocolate infused with
internationallysourced chili, sea
salt, exotic fruits,
nuts or nougat nowadays readily available alongside old-fashioned milk or dark chocolates.
With this trend in full swing, local baker and
chocolatier Duff let Rosenberg approached Steam
Whistle a year ago with the idea to create beerinfused chocolates after sampling some in her travels.
After months of tastings, the two companies
finally hit the perfect sweet-spot with two mouthwatering recipes, including:
• The Pretzel Beer Bites, whereby Duff let infuses
Steam Whistle’s Czech-style Pilsner into a chocolate ganache, surrounds it with a crunchy mix of
pretzels, vanilla cookie crumbs and white chocolate, and then covers it in milk chocolate;
• The Beer Ganache Truffles,
which get their rich,
malty
essence
from the Pilsnerganache filling
enrobed in dark
chocolate.
“We decided to
approach Steam
Whistle with our
idea for beer
chocolates because we know
they make the
best Pilsner in Canada,” Ro­
sen­
berg recalls. “A
keepsake tin of eight beer chocolates included
with six bottles of Steam Whistle makes this the
perfect pair to share.”
NEW YEAR RINGS IN DRAMATIC CHANGES FOR CASCADES OPERATIONS
With news of major capital investments followed
by announcements of asset selloffs, venerable forest

aimed at strengthening its Norampac corrugated
packaging business in Canada, while exiting the
sizeable domestic folding-carton business it built

converting operations to the U.S.-based Graphic
Packaging Holding Company for $44.9
million.
Employing 670 people, the sold facilities include:
•
A mill in East Angus, Que., manufacturing
recycled coated boxboard for the production of
folding cartons, originally acquired by Cascades
in 1983;
• A mill in Jonquière, Que., producing three-ply
coated boxboard from virgin or recycled fiber,
purchased in 1984;
•
A high-quality graphic packaging plant in
Mississauga, Ont., acquired in 1992;
•
A plant in Cobourg, Ont., manufacturing
high-end f lexographic boxboard containers,
built by Cascades in 1993;
•
A folding-carton production facility in
Winnipeg, acquired in 2001.
While Cascades says it plans to maintain its
boxboard manufacturing operations in Europe,
company president Mario Plourde says the
decidsion to sell its domestic paperboard business “signals our commitment to refocusing
our activities in the strategic sectors in which
Cascades excels.
“This transaction follows in the wake of
a number of other actions taken during the
course of the year, with a view to reducing our
debt load and focusing our investments in certain core packaging sectors, as well as in the tissue paper and recovery sectors,” Plourde states.
Adds Norampac president Marc-André
Dépin: “The investments made in past years in
these boxboard manufacturing and converting
units have led to an opportunity to create synergies with a player such as Graphic Packaging.
“By exiting this sector of activity in North
America, Cascades and Norampac are turning
a page in their history,” says Dépin.
Formally concluded earlier this month, the
deal provides the Atlanta, Ga.-headquartered
Graphic Packaging with
unprecedented proximity to a Canadian client
base in food, beverage,
and consumer goods
markets.
“The acquisition of
Cas­cades’
Norampac
paper­
board assets enhances our position in
North American folding
cartons and enables us
Marc-André Dépin,
President and CEO,
to extend our customer
Norampac Inc.
reach in Canada,” says
Graphic
Packaging’s
presi­dent and chief executive officer David Scheible.
“These assets will broaden our customer base and
allow us to offer our current customers a wider
range of products.”
For all that, it appears to be business as usual at
the Cascades-owned Norampac corrugating division, wich recently spent $13 million to acquire
and install two state-of-the-art printing presses at
Quebec-based corrugating plants in Vaudreuil and
Drummondville.”
Manufactured by Japanese-based Mitsubishi,
the two EVOL presses are expected to yield substantial productivity and efficiency improvements
at the two operations, according to Norampac.
“This major investment in Québec is part of our
efforts to modernize Norampac’s and Cascades’
assets,” says Norampac’s chief operating officer for
packaging Charles Malo.
“Similar investments were made at several of
Norampac’s corrugated converting plants in
Ontario, and productivity at those plants increased
significantly,” Malo states. “We believe that the
investments in Québec will have the same positive
spin-offs, allowing us to respond more quickly to
our customers’ needs, offer packaging products of
greater quality, and increase our productivity.”

FIRST GLANCE
POWERFUL VISION
The new PowerGrid machine vision technology
developed by Cognex Corporation is described
as a texture-based location algorithm that takes
an unconventional inside-out approach to reading 2-D (two-dimensional) matrix and DPM (direct part marking) codes by looking for a pattern
of alternating light and dark modules within the
code, rather than
just by locating
the finder pattern. According to
Cognex, this new
capability dramatically increases read
rates in 2-D barcode reading applications where a part’s geometry, poor lighting, occlusion, or print-registration
errors can make it difficult to capture an image of
the entire code. Incorporating this feature on the
company’s popular X models of the DataMan 300
series fixed-mount barcode readers enables them
to locate and read codes even when they exhibit
significant damage or complete elimination of the
finder pattern, clocking pattern, or quiet zone.

FIRST GLANCE
like a second skin, according to the company, while
providing excellent barrier protection during the
product’s entire life-cycle to ensure optimal product freshness, shelf-life, quality and consistency
in many different formats and varieties. Available
with a broad choice of different opening aids to
facilitate f lawless removal of the skin film when
opening the pack—whereby the product’s secure
fixation in the tray prevents it from moving—the
TraySkin xplus system is well-suited for vertical
presentation of fresh and frozen foods, including meat, poultry, seafood, convenience snacks
or entire ready meals with multiple components.
According to SEALPAC, the innovative TraySkin
xplus system can even accommodate bulky products such as larger bulk pieces of meat or whole
roasts—even with significant protrusion—on any
of the company’s A-series traysealers, after which
they can be easily labeled or upgraded with a cardboard sleeve for additional product protection.
Compatible with a broad range
of plastic and aluminum packaging materials, the TraySkin
packaging system is available
in several innovative variations
such as TenderPac—a twocompartment vacuum-packing
system for fresh red meat that
separates the product mass from
drip-loss that naturally occurs
during product maturation.

POSITIONAL AWARENESS
Designed for pairing with any
Festo T-slot pneumatic drive,
the new Festo SDAT-MHS
position transmitters offers an
inexpensive,
easy-to-install
alternative to positional transducers that provides consistently reliable positioning to
ensure high repetition accuracy
in applications such as pressing,
screwing, riveting, ultrasonic
welding, and adhesive bonding.
Designed to fill the void between
simple cylinder switches and
costly positional transducers
or mechanical potentiometers,
each SDAT-MHS transmitter
emits a path-proportional output signal. Available with sensing ranges of 50-, 80-, 100-,
125- and 160-mm to match the
most commonly used strokes of
Festo cylinders, the SDAT produces accurate feedback across
the entire stroke length, including discharge, without the need
for the sensors to project beyond
the end of the cylinder, while
its 4-20 mA analog output can
be connected directly to analog
inputs, without the need to program the analog output of a PLC
(programmable logic controller).

The Milton, ON facility of automotive and household chemical
producer Recochem Inc. produces 500 different SKU’s.
The licensed brands made and packaged by Recochem are amongst
the most popular and widely used products on the continent.
“Recently, we had a customer request scanable bar codes that could
be printed and applied at speeds of 50 boxes per minute. Weber
Marking gave us the best product for these high speeds and at a great
price, “ explains plant manager Larry Funnell.
Is it time to improve
your labeling?
Recochem purchased 8 Weber systems, one of them being the 5300
Label Printer-Applicator which prints up to 50 labels per minute at 203
dpi. The systems print on a wide range of surfaces with a myriad of
configurations: tamp-blow; air-blow; direct-tamp; swing-tamp; cornerwrap; dual label; and electric tamp-blow. Value-add features on the
5300 include a microprocessor and downloadable firmware capabilities.
Call Weber. We make you look good.
Funnell particularly appreciates the 5300’s memory capabilities,
“permitting the operator to select the requisite job from the applicator
rather than having to download it from the computer.”
Finally, Recochem has nothing but praise for the service and quick
delivery from Weber Marking Canada. “It really was a quick
turnaround, and I think it surprised all of us here at Recochem!”

A BLAST FROM THE PAST
Iconic Canadian breakfast cereal processor holds onto the past with modern
updates to its product packaging security
Matt Friesen,
Manufacturing Engineer,
Post Foods Canada
ANDREW JOSEPH, FEATURES EDITOR
PHOTOS BY KAZUYOSHI EHARA
I
t’s rare that a brick-and-mortar facility faithfully mirrors history of the product it manufacturers, but for one prominent processor of
grains and nuts breakfast cereals, there’s really no
place like home.
Situated near one of the world’s great natural
wonders in Niagara Falls, the Post Foods Canada
Inc. facility has been in operation for more than
100 years, producing multiple different popular
cereal products—its main products that have been
made in the Niagara Falls region for a long time.
With Post Foods Canada headquartered in
Toronto, and the global headquarters of Post
Holdings Inc. located in St. Louis, Mo., the
200,000-square-foot facility of production and
warehousing in Niagara Falls nowadays annually
produces approximately 40 million pounds (18,144
metric tonnes) of cereal products.
“This is the original Shredded Wheat facility in
Canada, and we still produce the original large
biscuits here,” Post Foods Canada manufacturing
engineer Matt Friesen told Canadian Packaging
magazine during a recent visit to the site. “In fact,
we are the only remaining, formerly Nabiscoowned plant that still makes this product.”
Along with Shredded Wheat, another breakfast
cereal product, Shreddies, has also only been made
at this location for over 75 years, he adds.
“The building has been ex­pand­ed at different times
throughout its long history,” explains Friesen, “but
overall, it is a very old facility rich with history.”

A contemporary of Perky and Ford, C.W. Post
created his Postum cereal beverage in 1895 in the
confines of a barn in Battle Creek, Michigan.
Two years later, he debuted the iconic Grape-Nuts
cereal, lauded as one of the first ready-to-eat cereals.
Neither a grape or a nut, it is made from natural wheat
and malted barley flour and contains the Post-invented
maltose flavoring, created during the fermentation
process, to create the cereal’s distinct nutty taste.
In 1912, Post helped usher in the then-innovative
marketing techniques such as extensive advertising, coupons, free samples, product demonstrations, plant tours and recipe booklets, all of which
kept his products in the consumer’s sights.
It worked wonders, as during the late 1920s
the then-named Postum began acquiring other
companies and expanding its product line to over
60 products—eventually changing its name to
General Foods Corporation.
The illustrious list of iconic cereals it introduced
over the succeeding decades includes: Grape-Nuts
Flakes (1932); Shreddies (1939), a Canadian brand;
Sugar-Crisp (1949); Alpha-Bits (1958); Spoon Size
Shredded Wheat (1961); Honeycomb (1965); Honey
Bunches of Oats (1989) and other f lavors; Cranberry
Almond Crunch (1997); and the Canadian cereal
Great Grains (2011).
With its rich historical legacy fully assured, in
2012 Post Foods became an independent, publicly-traded company that recently launched exciting new f lavors such as Granola Almond Crunch
Shreddies and Honey Bunches of Oats Greek
Yogurt cereal.
Despite the often-heard talk of Canadians eating healthier, the breakfast cereal market has in fact
Setting the foundation for 100-plus years of cereal history to come, in 1892 lawyer and inventor
Henry Drushel Perky and his business partner and
machinist William Henry Ford invented a machine
that shred whole wheat to create Shredded Wheat. The idea for
boiled wheat was original conceived by Perky to help alleviate his own bouts with chronic
diarrhea.
It was at Ford’s shop in Water­
town, N.Y., that they developed
a machine for making what
Perky called “little whole wheat
mattresses.”
Originally, Perky and Ford
wanted to just sell the machines,
not the biscuits, but the shredded
wheat biscuits proved to be too
popular to ignore. After moving to Worcester, Ma. in 1895
with The Cereal Machine
Company, he added the
Shred­ded Wheat Company.
In 1904, the company added
the Canadian
Shredded
Wheat Company at the current facility in Niagara Falls
with Shredded Wheat also being
launched in Canada, although
the U.S. and Canadian companies were eventually sold to

shrunk in recent years, but bucking the trend, Post has
managed to expand its own market share in Canada.
“Throughout the long history of this facility, and
the various ownership shifts, since 1904 Shredded
Wheat—and Shreddies since 1939—have continued to be processed here at the very same plant,”
states Friesen.
“The year 2015 is the 76th anniversary of Shreddies
cereal, and it remains our biggest seller.”
According to Friesen, the plant currently produces more than its two iconic brands, providing a
total of 35 different SKUs (stock-keeping units).
The core grain ingredients utilized at the Niagara
Falls plant include wheat, corn, rice, oats and other
grains, that are cooked, tempered, formed, baked,
finished with coating and additives, if necessary,
and of course packaged.
“It’s breakfast cereal, so our plant operation is not
highly cyclical,” relates Friesen.
“We run 24-hours-a-day with three shifts, fivedays-a-week with full clean-ups every weekend,”
says Friesen, adding the Niagara Falls facility is SQF
Level 2-certified, a food safety program that incorporates the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control
Point) approach to managing risks and hazards.
“As well, we also recently became the first facility within the Post Foods family to achieve zero
waste sent to the landfill,” explains Friesen.
Friesen explains says that the plant operates four
main processes, each with its own packaging line.
Says Friesen: “There are three 200-foot (69.96
meters) long, single-pass tunnel ovens and one
puffing/toasting system, with each oven utilizing
natural ambient air cooling for the cereal products.
“It’s really a fancy way of saying we do not use a
cooling system other than conveyor system ride at
room temperature.”
While the old adage ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix
it’ might hold some sway amongst cost-conscious
operations, Post Foods Canada seems quite adept
at tweaking things, says Friesen, “as long as it can
make us more efficient and save us money and
resources in the short and long run.”
It certainly makes for an interesting dynamic
of solid, well-built processing equipment and a
plethora of new and newer packaging machinery
housed at the plant.
“Everything we do here at the Niagara Falls
plants is bag-in-box, except for Shredded Wheat,”
explains Friesen.
“It has its own unique system that involves the
biscuits being packaged in groups of threes,”
says Friesen adding the Shredded Wheat line now
operates four combination metal detection and
checkweighing systems as part of a significant
packaging system upgrade it purchased via Abbey
Packaging Equipment Inc., though a fifth unit
was placed on another product packaging line.
States Friesen: “I don’t want to handle consumer
complaints. I want to eliminate them.”
“Abbey Packaging came highly recommended to
us based on their service record from other contacts
within the food industry,” relates Friesen. “They
have a willingness to work towards the optimal
solution, and that’s just what we needed.
“They were even willing to help us start up the
four new systems simultaneously at 2a.m. back in
August of 2014,” he recalls, “and we haven’t really
had any issues since that start-up.”
Headquartered in Burlington, Ont., Abbey
Packaging is a complete sales and service provider for a select group of specialized equipment

SSV Series Checkweigher line—the Versatile; Washdown; and High Accuracy systems, all with an
available combination unit featuring an integrated
Anritsu metal detector.
There are more than 150 standard Checkweigher
models in the Anritsu catalog and more than
70,000 installed systems operating around the
globe, according to the company.
For Post Foods, the SSV Versatile provides a good
fit for the application, equipped with a highly f lexible strain gauge load cell to provides what Abbey
packaging calls ‘industry-leading accuracy.’
The real challenge for Abbey Packaging wasn’t in
just selling the appropriate machinery, but incorporating it into the very limited space at the Post
Foods facility, where the existing metal detector
conveyor line was located.
“We chose to go with the combination system because it is more effective to
approach consumer complaints by eliminating the consumer complaints before they
happen,” explains Friesen.
“Historically, one of the leading complaints we received on Shredded Wheat
was that customers were missing biscuits in
the package, even though the packages still
met the declared weight,” he relates.
“Initially, our approach was to try and
detect missing biscuits in the product f low
at the point of wrapping, but this was found
to be unsuccessful.”
Friesen notes that prior to this project
with Abbey Packaging, Post Foods had
always deployed its checkweighers at the
end of the packaging system to guarantee regulatory compliance, but it sought
an improvement to avoid future customer
complaints.
Traditionally, a vision inspection system on the wrapper infeed would be used
for inspection of missing items, but both
Abbey Packaging and Post Foods agreed
that this approach was not reliable enough.

A Baldor motor powers conveyors that move product
through the Anritsu SSV Series combination checkweigher/metal detection systems.
To resolve the problem, Abbey Packaging
in­
stalled intermediate checkweighing systems
immediately after the Shredded Wheat biscuits were
wrapped to verify individual package count.
As Friesen explains, “We selected the Anritsu
SSV Versatile Series combination systems from
Abbey Packaging as they were the only vendor
able to meet our tight footprint requirements and
they came highly recommended from an aftersale
perspective.
“The Anritus systems we purchased from Abbey
Packaging fit my existing line layout and reduced
the cost to retrofit compared to the competition.
“Along with wanting our equipment to be capable
of working at our high level
of expectations, we also felt
it was imperative that we also
maintain high-quality local
service, and Abbey Packaging
was able to bring all of that to
the table for us,” he adds.
Post Foods’ new SSV Versatile
model KDS5206BP3D has
a stainless-steel finish with
integrated Anritsu Dual
Wave (duw) metal detection
unit, and dual f lipper reject
system with a lockable reject
bin and reject confirmation.
Adds Abbey Packaging
technical sales representative
Andrej Bagrincev: “Only
Anritsu was able to offer
a combination unit with a
double f lip-arm reject system that did not require any
major rebuild of the production line.
“Moreover, the reject confirmation function was added
to ensure that no product with contaminants or
incorrect weight will leave
the inspection point.”
In order to meet Post Foods’
HACCP reporting requirements, a networkable
software package for plant-wide data collection
from Anritsu was implemented.
This software package, known as QUICCA, is
a powerful tool for overall quality management,
control and reporting.
Bagrincev explains: “The solution to the restricted
space problem was made possible by the design of
the combination system. Anritsu’s advanced technology and design enabled the duw metal detector to be installed directly upon the Versatile
Checkweigher’s infeed conveyor—within a space
of just 800 millimeters.”
The first four stainless-steel SSV Versatile systems sold to Post Foods utilized Anritsu’s duw dual
frequency metal detection heads, while for the
second project, a fifth SSV Versatile combination
system featured the duw-h high-sensitivity dualfrequency metal detection head.
“For the first project, the standard duw metal
detectors were adequate to meet the customer’s
sensitivity standards,” asserts Bagrincev, “while
the second project required the higher-sensitivity
duw-h option in order to meet the requirements of
a larger product size.”
Bagrincev explains that the Anritsu duw series of
metal detectors actually runs two electromagnetic
frequencies simultaneously—one is tuned for
detection of ferrous metals, and the second frequency is optimized for stainless steel detection—
and is the only company to offer this technology.
“It’s a unique approach that provides the user
with essentially two metal detectors in one, offering the best performance for both ferrous and

f opportunity is really a favorable combination of circumstances, time and place—as
most dictionaries will tell you—then the
recently-formed f lexible packaging upstart TC
Transcontinental Packaging is an opportunist
par excellence.
Created in the wake of last spring’s US$133million acquisition of the Clinton, Mo.-based
cheese packaging manufacturer Capri Packaging
by the venerable Canadian media and printing
giant TC Transcontinental Inc., the upstart
company’s entry into the North American f lexible
packaging markets is by any stretch a serious statement of intent to succeed.
Backed up by significant capital resources and
top-level corporate commitment of its renowned
parent company—one of Canada’s largest commercial printers and leading media companies for over
39 years—the new packaging venture is arguably
one of Transcontinental’s most concerted efforts at
strategic corporate diversification in recent years,
taking it considerably beyond its traditional geographic and customer comfort zones.
“This acquisition represents an important strategic move for the corporation into a new, promis-
ing growth area,” Transcontinental president and
chief executive officer Francois Olivier proclaimed
last March after formally completing the acquisition of Capri from the U.S.-based cheese-packing
giant Schreiber Foods Inc.
“It is part of our strategy to ensure our future
growth path through
diversification,” Olivier
states.
According to TC

and annual revenues of
$75 to $85 million, with
the lion’s share of that
total accounted by a 10-year contract to supply
Schreiber’s plants with f lexible cheese packaging.
While those revenues for now represent a small
fraction of the $1.5 billion that Transcontinental
earns annually from its printing operations and
another $700 million from its media assets, “The

end goal is to develop packaging as the third meaningful business segment in the Transcontinental
portfolio,” says Reid, citing the inherent synergies
in process know-how and expertise the company
has at its disposal.
“There are many similarities between our commercial printing operations and processes and
those in f lexible packaging converting,” Reid told
Canadian Packaging on a recent visit to the magazine’s offices in northwest Toronto.
“Both are based on custom batch manufacturing processing with prepress, printing and finishing operations staffed by highly skilled workforces,
with the main difference being the substrate—
printing on film versus printing on paper.”
With the two Clinton plants equipped with an
impressive arsenal of high-performance converting
equipment comprising five f lexographic printing
presses, three laminators, and multiple slitters with
laser capabilities—along with a comprehensive
suite of pre-media and platemaking technologies in
Aurora—Reid is understandably highly upbeat on
the company’s competitive strengths and marketplace smarts.
“We have researched the market extensively,
and we are highly encouraged by what we see
in the flexible packaging sector.”
“Being built by Schreiber fairly recently, specifically for making cheese packaging to be sent to their
packaging plants, these plants are more like food
plants than converting plants in terms of product
safety, cleanliness and sanitation,” says Reid, citing
the facilities’ SQF Level 3 certification for safety
and quality from the authoritative Safe Quality
Food Institute (SQF).
“These are very impressive facilities equipped
with state-of-the-art technologies,” says Reid,
adding the two plants will continue to operate
under the Capri banner for time being due to its
name recognition in the cheese business, particularly in the private-label segment.
“We are fortunate in that there is a pretty good
cultural fit between Transcontinental and Capri in
terms of core values and in how they operate in
general,” says Reid, “which is one of the key factors in this integration having gone as well and as
smooth as it has.
“The Capri people are really behind us in our
efforts to build up a real thriving packaging business, as this was not the core business of a US$5billion company like Schreiber, who decided to
focus on its core cheese business.
“We have already invested in some new laminat-
ing equipment and a new ERP (enterprise resource
planning) system infrastructure,” he relates, “which
has the people there very excited.
“Because the two plants originally existed only
to serve Schreiber, there was no concerted effort
to grow the customer base beyond that, but we
are now developing a sales and marketing team to
expand our horizons by identifying potential new
customers that would provide a good fit for us in
terms of the product we make and the structures
that we process,” says Reid, noting the new entity’s
North American business focus is in itself a departure from Transcontinental’s traditional reliance
on Canadian domestic markets.
“It’s a different dynamic in the packaging business, where you have many Canadian packaging
producers export a lot of their output to the U.S.
because that’s where the customers are,” says Reid,
adding the company is open to possible expansion
of its manufacturing operations in Canada down
the road if it makes economic sense.
“Our strategy is to grow the business both
organically and via acquisitions,” says Reid, a lifelong printing industry professional who joined
Transcontinental 23 years ago and has headed its
printing business for the last seven years.
“Now that I’m also in charge of the packaging
business, we are utilizing a lot of the resources and
knowledge we built up in print to support our
packaging activities,” he says.
“We have had good success in hiring senior
people with a lot of experience in the packaging
field,” says Reid, singling out the recent appointment of Michael Hill, a well-known packaging
and printing professional with nearly 50 years of
experience, as the company’s vice-president of
business development.
“I was excited by Transcontinental’s business
plans and the opportunity to help them grow,”
says Hill, a U.K. native whose prolific career also
includes a few years working with TC’s commercial printing business back in the 1990s
“I really love the packaging business, and this is a
really exciting time for it—especially in the f lexible packaging space,” Hill states.
“I see continued strong growth for stand-up
pouches, which will compete with the traditional
rigid plastic bottles and folding cartons by offering
innovative alternative solutions to rigid packaging
formats,” Hill asserts.
“Flexible packaging has an important role to play
in food waste reduction in North America,” he
notes, “and by continuously improving its barrier
properties to extend product shelf-life, as well as
facilitating portion control to reduce food spoilage,
there are many exciting growth opportunities that
we can explore.”
Adds Reid: “We have researched the market
extensively, and we are highly encouraged by what
we see in the f lexible packaging sector.
“There is an overall trend towards lighter packaging that handles and travels better, is more
cost-effective to ship, and is more environmentally-friendly,” says Reid, “and f lexible packaging
checks all the boxes.
“All in all, f lexible packaging just offered a better growth opportunity: both organically and
through acquisitions,” says Reid, adding the sector’s fairly fragmented make-up provides ample
room for further industry consolidation in coming years.
“Unlike in other segments, f lexible packaging
is still comparatively a very fragmented market in

a sense that there are so many players in it,” he
explains.
“There are over 400 f lexible packaging converters in North America, with us being somewhere in
the middle in terms of size, so this segment has not
yet been consolidated to the same degree as other
packaging segments,” says Reid, adding he expects
Transcontinental to be a very “active” player in
any future M&A (merger-and-acquisition) activity
in the industry.
“We are definitely in this for the long term: we
want to build a solid business; keep our core values;
and be a responsible participant in the growth of
the North American f lexible packaging market,”
Reid asserts.
“We have met a lot of people in the business in
the last few months and attended several key industry events,” Reid relates. “Our initial impression
is that it is a very vibrant business with a lot of
passionate, innovative, and knowledgeable people
serving it.
“And while it’s definitely a North American
market, we are very proud of our Canadian roots
and you can be sure that we will certainly retain
our Canadian identity going forward,” Reid points
out.
Says Reid: “In the near term, our primary goal
is to fully integrate our Capri acquisition and to
gain greater in-depth understanding of the f lexible
packaging business in order to identify potential
opportunities for future growth.
“Having these plants and their relatively new
equipment gives us some very good competitive strengths and capabilities, especially with the
ongoing trend to shorter runs and quick turnarounds, as well as continuing to innovate with
stand-up pouch formats and new resealability features to add value to our customers’ products.
“We are determined to develop packaging as a
third meaningful business segment in the TC portfolio,” Reid concludes, “and we now have a great
manufacturing base and a strong R&D team in
place to help us achieve our objectives.”

PACKAGING FOR FRESHNESS
GROWING HOME!
Canadian fresh produce industry steps up to the plate in buoyant mood and mindset
BY GEORGE GUIDONI, EDITOR
W
hile an apple a day may or may not be
the wisest words of advice on healthy
eating ever coined, there is no denying
the importance of regular consumption of fresh
fruits and vegetables for maintaining good health
of the general population at large.
Especially when it also helps to support a thriving
business sector of growing economic clout and significance—as evidenced by the $4 billion annual
contribution to Canada’s GDP (gross domestic
product) by the country’s producers of fresh and
fresh-cut fruits and vegetables.
“As an economic engine, the fruit and vegetable supply chain sector is a key driver in ensuring Canadians maintain their quality of life and
style of living,” says Ron Lemaire, president of the
Ottawa-based Canadian Produce Marketing
Association (CPMA).
“Our industry directly employs about 150,000
Canadians coast-to-coast; we generate about a
$7.6-billion increase in total household incomes
annually; and in 2013 we generated a $2.9-billion
increase in total corporate profits,” says Lemaire, a
Carleton University graduate who joined CPMA
in 1998 and has served as the group’s president for
the last five years.
“We touch every corner in Canada because our
supply chain links most of rural Canada through
all the core urban centers,” Lemaire told Canadian
Packaging in a recent interview, touching on a
broad range of regulatory and marketplace challenges and opportunities facing the group’s highly
diversified membership comprising approximately
800 companies, representing a broad cross-section
of industry segments.
“Most people just don’t realize what it really takes
to move product from the field to the consumer,”
says Lemaire.
“The reality of growing a perishable product and
moving it through a system in a rigorous manner is
truly something of a little miracle,” Lemaire states.
“There is a lot of investment behind the process
that goes on behind the scenes to enable a consumer
to pick up and enjoy the apple bought at the grocery
store, be it a local or a foreign-grown product.”
SIZE MATTERS
The sheer scope and scale of that investment is
especially remarkable in the context of a relatively
“thin-margin” industry like the fresh produce
business, Lemaire points out, with most companies’ profit margins ranging from three to five per
cent.
This reality makes it imperative that the industry’s entire supply chain runs like clockwork with
optimal efficiency at each stage of the process,
Lemaire expands.
“Everybody plays a role in getting the product
into the consumers’ home and enjoying it—from
the packaging industry right though transportation companies, to the grower, to the wholesaler,
retailer and foodservice operator,” says Lemaire,
explaining the unusually
diverse make-up of
CPMA’s core membership, which also includes
a number of packaging
companies.
“It is a very diversified
and complex membership base, which ref lects
the nature of how the
produce industry operates,” Lemaire relates,
“but we must also have
Ron Lemaire,
a lot of cohesion and
President, CPMA
cooperation to ensure
that the product can move through the supply chain.
“So as an organization, we (CPMA) function and
operate in the all-encompassing ‘system model,’
rather than just a traditional supply chain network.
“It is a really unique model: I haven’t seen the
likes of it in other industries,” Lemaire notes.
“We work with both the produce food industry
and the nonfood industry partners such as government, academia, the consumers, the researchers,
the health community and many other stakeholders towards achieving the shared goal of facilitating the consumption of fruits and vegetables in
Canada,” Lemaire states.
“Our vision and mandate is to improve the population’s health and industry’s prosperity: these are
the two core components that drive our ‘systems’
thinking.”
Scheduled to run April 15-17, 2015, at Montreal's beautiful Palais des congrès de Montréal, the 90th annual CPMA convention and trade show is expected to draw thousands of
visitors to the three-day event featuring over 500 exciting booth exhibits.

For all that, actually getting Canadians to consume more fresh fruit and veggies on a daily basis
is not as simple and straightforward as it sounds in
principle, Lemaire acknowledges.
“Although Canadian consumers are very well
informed about the benefits of eating these products, it doesn’t always necessarily translate into
consumption,” he says. “Our research shows they
are currently eating 4.2 servings a day on average,
which has remained static since 2008, and we would
like to see this average go over five servings.”
On a brighter note, consumers are increasingly allocating a larger portion of their shopping
budgets to the purchases of fresh produce at the
retail level, according to CPMA research.
“The percentage of space that produce takes up
at the retailers outsells the space that it represents,”
Lemaire points out. “Canadian retailers devote
about 19 per cent of their space to produce, but for
grocers who sell fresh produce these sales account
for about 21 per cent of their revenues.
“So individual retailers really have to ask themselves whether they’re doing a good job of positioning their produce department to be an important
element in drawing consumers to their stores more
frequently with repeat shopping,” says Lemaire,
suggesting that enhanced positioning on the f loor
level could in turn stimulate the consumers’ daily
consumption levels.
“Our surveys show that three out of four
Canadians who buy fruits and veggies are now
buying products that they did not buy five years
ago,” says Lemaire, noting the ever-growing product choice and diversity offered to consumers.
“They are experimenting, trying new things and
new taste experiences, which in turn is driving
exciting product innovation,” he says.
“Suddenly you had strawberries in see-though
clamshells, with no product falling out of the open
pint boxes, being easier to transport, drastically
reducing product shrink and loss, and the product
just looking so much better!
“Starting out from that basic piece of packaging, we have seen very dynamic innovation in
the packaging industry: combo packs, food kits,
microwavable packs, all-in-one food solutions,
resalable plastic pouches, wash-though grape bags,
ready-to-eat bowl offerings … these are all very
positive developments,” Lemaire proclaims.
“Even the traditional mash bag is being reconfigured by adding new components and compartments to it.
“All of these pieces are fundamental in driving
the market.”
For packaging companies looking to explore
opportunities in this market, Lemaire suggests
attending CPMA’s annual convention and trade
show—this year to be held at Palais des congrès de
Montréal in downtown Montreal, April 15-17—as
a good stating point.
Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, the
high-profile event will feature over 500 exhibits,
including displays by prominent packaging companies, and expects to draw over 3,200 industry
professionals with significant decision-making
authority, Lemaire points out.
“This is a very good place to see new packaging technologies that are fundamental to moving the industry into the future with new supply
chain efficiencies, cold chain management process, more effective packaging that takes up less
space in a truck, new packaging to reduce product
shrink, improve product shelf-life and so on,” says
Lemaire, stressing that CPMA maintains a completely neutral position in regards to packaging
material/substrate selection and preferences.
QUALITY FIRST
“Like most people, Canadian consumers are pricedriven to an extent, but what makes them really
unique is that product quality is key to their final
purchasing decisions, followed by location of the
store and then cost,” Lemaire relates.
“As the Canadian population continues to get
older, the so-called ‘Grey Power’ is beginning to
inf luence things like product size and packaging
size, whereas the younger generation is driving the
push for more locally-sourced and more ‘sustainable’ options,” Lemaire observes.
“The diversity coming in from the different consumer markets is quite an exciting development
driving industry innovation and change,” says
Lemaire, adding that the packaging industry has
a huge opportunity on its hands in nurturing this
diversity even further through continuous packaging innovation.
Says Lemaire: “Packaging in this industry did
not change substantially for many years, until the
clamshell came along and people just went: Wow!
“We work with the packaging industry to make sure
the market has the appropriate information to make
the appropriate business decisions,” Lemaire states.
“Our job is to bring the industry together to
ensure it remains knowledgeable, and it’s for industry to dictate what it must have to ensure it remains
a profitable business,” he adds. “At the end of the
day, they need to protect the product and the consumer in the most cost-effective way, which the
market will ultimately decide.”
Lemaire says making well-informed decisions on
packaging and other supply chain issues is especially important for the Canadian business, whose
annual imports of about $7 billion worth of fresh
produce is more than double the $3.2 billion that
it exports, with the U.S. accounting for $2 billion
of that total.
“We are largely self-sustainable for the products
that we can grow in this country,” Lemaire says,
“but given the product diversity that consumers
are looking for, imports are a fact of life.
“Many of the products that have become staples
in Canadians’ diets—like avocadoes for example—
just can’t be grown here in bulk.
“We really can’t grow citrus, bananas and many
other fruit varieties in this climate, and many things
that we can grow in significant quantities, like
strawberries, we can’t grow on year-round basis.”
That said, the $3.2 billion in annual exports is
a pretty good showing for a cold-climate country like Canada, Lemaire contends, citing Japan,
Germany, Mexico, China and The Netherlands
as some of the more notable destinations for
Canadian-grown produce.
“We export a lot of hothouse products like tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers, along with potatoes,
mushrooms and carrots,” says Lemaire.
“Our fruit exports mainly consist of blueberries,
cranberries, cherries and apples, which form 90 per
cent of our fresh fruit exports, with the rest being
split among some unique products like Saskatoon
berries, to give an example.”
Given these trade dynamics, CPMA is naturally
a strong proponent and advocate of policies that
promote the cause of free f low of trade in fresh
produce among countries and within Canada,
Lemaire says.

PACKAGING FOR FRESHNESS
NATIONAL INTEREST
In fact, the federal government would do well to
take a cue from some of Canada’s biggest trading
partners in how to increase the domestic consumption of fresh produce without resorting to intrusive
nanny-state methods, Lemaire suggests.
“We are the only G-7 country without a national
fruit and vegetables policy,” Lemaire points out. “In
contrast, the European Union has a fruit scheme
whereby EU will match a country’s investment in
EU nations that implement a program to put an
apple on every school desk, to use an example.
“There is an explicit recognition that national
policies like this have a real health and economic
benefit,” he argues.
“Same thing for the school Salad Bar program in
the U.S., which also has other federally-supported
programs as well as a national nutrition policy,”
says Lemaire.
“In Canada, meanwhile, we have a jurisdictional
standoff on whether something like this should be
a provincial or national responsibility, and we need
to resolve that.
“The bottom line is that increased fresh produce
consumption will improve the population’s health
as well as the industry’s prosperity.
Says Lemaire: “Reaching that threshold of five
daily servings as part of a national policy would be
the first step to having the provinces and national
grassroots groups across Canada invest in and drive
the programs to Canadians—that’s the end winwing goal that we at the CPMA are actively working to achieve in the near future.”

And it’s hardly a stretch to say that things are

was critical to keep this plant going,” Tarnowsky
told Canadian Packaging on a recent visit to the
70-employee Concord operation.
Drawing an analogy with hockey icon Wayne
Gretzky to make a point, “What made him such a
great player was not his ability to follow the puck
but being in the right place just where he thought
the puck would arrive,” Tarnowsky explains. “And
much in the same way, we decided to enter the
monodose segment because that’s where we saw
the whole detergent market moving.
“And it has paid off big-time for us,” beams Tarnowsky, citing JemPak’s annual sales of over $50
million and a loyal client base comprising some of
the leading lights in the global retail business.
“It’s all about consumer convenience with the
monodose products,” says Tarnowsky, adding the
busy, two-shift Concord plant now boasts capacity to produce about 1.5 billion packs of variable
quantities of individual pods annually.
“You just pick it up, pop it into a dishwasher and
away you go, all without the hassle of measuring
and pouring powders and gels into the dishwasher
yourself, making it such a chore,” Tarnowsky says,
relating that 95 per cent of the Concord plant’s production is dedicated to dishwasher powder pods,
with the rest for monodose laundry pods.
“The monodose clothes detergents have not yet
caught on in the same big way in North America,”
he acknowledges, “but it’s growing fast enough
where I can see it account for up to 20 per cent of
our production down the road.”
It took millions of dollars to completely overhaul
the Concord facility to accommodate brand new
equipment, manufacturing processes and facility
infrastructure to make the monodose products,
and for plant manager Robert Poletto, a 25-year
manufacturing industry veteran with a strong
technical background in industrial instrumentation, it was money well-spent by any measure.
CAPITAL GAINS
“We have invested a lot of resources in the business
and we will continue to do so because that’s what
gives us our competitive edge,” says Poletto, who
personally oversaw the installation of the plant’s
two high-performance packaging lines handling
the conversion of bulk ingredients kept in massive
super sacks into the finger-sized monodose sachets,
blended in a multitude of different formulation
recipes, packed inside the retail plastic tubs and
stand-up pouches shipped to the retailers’ outlets.
“The actual conversion process into the final
product is actually pretty quick, a matter of seconds,
which has been made possible by the well-executed
integration of highly automated process and packaging equipment at this facility,” says Poletto, while
also crediting the plant’s highly dedicated workforce
for embracing the new technology and processes.
“While there was some initial concern when the
company first decided to refocus the business, the
employees really grasped the opportunity to learn
something new and to grow themselves in terms of
their skillsets,” Poletto relates.
“When we started production in 2012 we had
achieved equipment reliability rates of over 90 per
cent within three weeks,” Poletto points out.
“This is something I personally like to brag
about,” he chuckles, “because it really demonstrates our employees’ level of knowledge and
commitment.
“With all this new technology coming into the
plant, it is a big credit to them and their collective ability to absorb it all, learn as much as they
can, and put it all into place to make the best-quality product possible for our customers,” Poletto
ref lects.
The plant’s unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and product quality, as evidenced by frequent stringent quality checks and
analyses of all the many formulations blended and
packaged over the course of a daily shift, underpins
all the success and growth that the operations has
achieved so far in growing its client base, Poletto
asserts.
Not only does JemPak supply Costco stores with
its private-label detergent pods throughout Canada
and the U.S., he points out, it also ships them to
the retailer’s overseas locations in the U.K, Spain,
Australia and Taiwan.
“We would not be able to do this unless we ran
a cost-efficient operation making a sufficiently
high-quality product that commands a sufficient
price-point to cover our costs and to provide reasonable margins for our business,” Poletto reasons.
“Naturally, this involves a fair amount of auto-

work to improve the existing formulations for the
customers.
Sourcing its raw ingredients from leading chemical
producers around the world, the detergent mixes are
blended and screened to specs, thoroughly inspected
at various stages by metal detectors and checkweighers, stringently tested for density, consistency and
other key requirements, and placed inside large bulk
super-sacks—four sacks per every 2,450-kilogram
batch of product—to await their transfer to one of
the two packaging lines.
Each of the WIP (work-in-progress) batches is
meticulously tracked and randomly tested throughout the pre-packaging stages to ensure optimal
product quality, Poletto relates.
The pods themselves are packed on one of two
state-of-the-art, custom-made powder fillers outfitted with multiple rows of filling cavities, where
the powder is dispensed onto a pre-laid layer of
water-soluble film, topped off with another film
layer, and instantly heat-sealed with water to create the final, see-through, pillow-shaped individual pods.

ment to provide our customers with top product
quality and cost-savings, always looking for ways
to give them a break on prices as much as possible,”
Poletto reveals.
“I really believe that our products are at least as
good, if not better, than the national brands they
compete with, and that’s down to our focus on
maintaining continuous improvement throughout
our quality control system.”
“We have a lot of built-in f lexibility to give our
customers whatever they want, including the larger
110-count tubs preferred by Big Box retailers like
Costco to the 12- and 20-pod zippered stand-up
pouches formed on our pouchmaking machines,”
Poletto relates, complimenting the plant’s two
high-performance pouchmaking machines manufactured by Roberts Packaging Equipment, a
division of Des Plaines, Ill.-based Cloud Packaging Solutions LLC, and supplied by Allied
Flex Technologies, Inc. and JG Packaging.
A close-up view of the Eagle Packaging Machinery’s case-erector feeding the JemPak
packaging lines with corrugated shipping boxes made by Atlantic Packaging Products.
The stackable plastic tubs used to package larger quantities of dishwasher detergent
pods for Big Box retail customers help to ensure optimal cube utilization during transit.
All of the filled stand-up pouches are quickly
transferred to a fully-automatic collating machine—manufactured by Eagle Packaging Machinery LLC— which stacks the pouches in neat,
upright rows of product in pre-selected quantities,
which travel on in these neat bunches to the casepacking area.
CASE SHUT
Upon arrival, a line operator inserts them by hand
into empty corrugated shipping cartons arriving
alongside just-in-time on an adjacent conveyor
from the nearby automatic Boxxer T-12 case-erecting machine, also supplied by Eagle Packaging.
Once filled, each box proceeds to pass through
an automatic Eagle Packaging case-sealer, which
quickly applies a precise strip of sealing tape lengthwise to the top of each passing carton.
The sealed boxes then make their way towards
two downstream line operators who swiftly stack
them onto the nearby wooden pallets in neat layers
to fill out the orders.
The finished pallets are then whisked by forklift operators to one of the plant’s three automatic stretchwrapping machines, which applies a
secure layer of film around the finished stack to
ensure optimal load stability during transport and
distribution.
Supplied as fully-integrated, turnkey line solutions, the Eagle Packaging machines have proved
to be “highly reliable pieces of equipment that immediately adjust themselves to the specific product
counts and quantities that we are processing at any
one time,” notes Tarnowsky.
“We are very happy with the Eagle equipment’s
performance and the fact that we have good local
technical support to address whatever issues we may
have without incurring any significant machine
downtime,” he states.
Naturally, the plant’s line operators constantly

monitor the continuous, highly-automated process
in real time assurance throughout all packaging
steps and stages to ensure optimal product quality
and a smooth-running operation.
“A typical powder blend may combine up to 15
different ingredients, so we check everything: from
product density and f lowability to checkweighing
the final packages and individual pack-counts,”
notes Poletto.
“We did a lot of work in-house to increase the
machine speeds to a point where we can a run a
full-out 24/7 schedule if our product needs demand it,” says Poletto, adding the plant is always
looking at new ways to boost its productivity and
efficiency through additional automation.

manually,” he says.
“We are very competitive at what we do: there’s a
lot of competition out there right now, and the best
way for us to deal with it is to focus on our business of
supplying the market with the best-quality product.”
JemPak’s chief executive officer Charles Zuckerman full-heartedly concurs, adding that the company’s competitive edge is rooted in its earnest
commitment to continuous R&D investment.
“We reinvest about 10 to 15 per cent of what
we earn back in R&D, which is pretty high for a
company that does not manufacturer brand-name
products and, relatively speaking, for a company of
limited size and scope.
“But the main reason we have the likes of Costco,
Walmart and Dollar General doing business with
us is that we have a very strong R&D department
that enables us to produce high-quality, cost-effective formulations that are at least as good or better than the national brands.
“That’s the nuts and bolts of what JemPak is all
about,” Zuckerman proclaims, adding he is highly
upbeat on the company’s growth prospects.
“The monodose dishwasher detergent sector is
huge: it astounds me how many of these products
are sold every year,” Zuckerman enthuses.
“Our plant alone can make 1.5 billion packs of
these pods on two production lines,” he notes,
“and our much bigger brand-name competitors
turn out at least 10 times as many.”
Despite having all the resources and technical
know-how to manufacture its own branded products,
Zuckerman flatly rejects the notion of doing that any
time soon, citing the considerable time, effort and resources invested in building strong relationship with
the company’s key private-label customers.
“One of our cardinal rules is that we don’t com-

pete with our customers, so that there is never any
whiff of conf lict of interest,” he asserts.
“Our job is to make the customers better by
making a better product for them—a product that
is as good or better than the national brands, but
costs less at the retail level.
“The only way we can compete with multibillion-dollar brand companies is to be one step
ahead of them in quality, efficiency, and performance of the product,” he says, “which is why we
pride ourselves on our R&D activities.
“Our R&D is really the heart of the company,
which guides everything from the way we buy
machinery to how we implement new processes
and to how we approach new customers.
“We don’t just do business with anybody and
everybody,” Zuckerman points out.
“We are always careful to do business with those
companies that have the means and the desire to
make their private-label programs successful, as
opposed to companies that simply use private-label
products to beat up on the brands simply based on
price—there’s no longevity for us in that.”
As one of key figures behind the decision to reset the
plant’s product focus three years ago, Zuckerman is
highly encouraged by JemPak’s dramatic turnaround
in fortunes so far, as well as its future prospects.
“If you don’t embrace change to improve your
business, you essentially resign yourself to be mired
in mediocrity,” he states.
“That’s not for us: we’re all about being the best
in everything that we do,” Zuckerman proclaims.
“That’s why we chose to compete in the high end
of the market, to go up against the best.
“When we realized that we were not going to be
able to provide the market with the best fabric softener sheets out there, it was imperative to identify
for ourselves a product segment where we would be
producing a premium-quality product.
“We deliberately chose to compete in the ‘Top Tier’
because that’s where we can offer the most value to our
customers,” Zuckerman concludes, “which in turn
brings out the best in us and our employees.”

When it comes to packaging ground beef, only Reiser gives you this many choices. We offer a wide range
of packaging equipment so that you can choose the best solution for your application. Are you looking for a modified
atmosphere package to extend shelf-life? Or perhaps an economical tray with a “fresh, just-packed” appearance?
How about a low-cost chub that can be produced at very high speeds? Or maybe a flexible film, semi-rigid, or vacuum
package? We have machines that produce all of these packages – and more importantly – we can help determine
which one is right for you. Plus, you can test any of these packaging machines for yourself at our Reiser Customer
Center. Contact us today and set up a demonstration.

Domino's A320i ink jet
printer offes a service free
printer plus: (1) The
operator interface is easy
to use-just enter the job
and go on to the next task.
(2) Simplified display
quickly puts the printer in
action. (3)Its printhead
stays clear of residual
ink-you'll see lower ink
costs.
The A420i's increased ink
capability complements the
general range of i-Tech
inks, with a versatile range
of Specialist and Custom
ink offerings, such as
specialist thermochromic
ink for canning.
The key to the D-Series
flexibility is a smaller i-Tech
scan head, connected to
the laser tube on a
multi-position mount. The
head can be rotated
through 90 degree steps to
allow for many mounting
positions, and because it is
so much smaller, it can
easily fit where bigger
lasers cannot.
Increased power and
speed, combined with an
optional IP65-rated version,
result in the D620i laser,
that is equal to the most
demanding applications
and environments.
RapidScan makes our
lasers 20% faster for
high-speed applications
than other scribing lasers.
Domino's i-Tech Ribbon
Drive offers 4 ribbon save
settings including 'Economy
Mode' which
allows you to use up to
60% less ribbon per print without affecting print
quality.
Unlike other thermal
transfer coders, the V220i
uses intelligent Technology
to meet all your general
purpose coding needs
while keeping your costs as
low as possible. Its
compact size allows simple
retrofit into existing
brackets. 650m ribbon rolls
for long production runs,
with effective length of up
to 1625m when Economy
Mode is used.
With the largest ribbon rolls
in the industry and unique
ribbon save features, the
V320i also delivers the
lowest cost of ownership of
all thermal transfer printers.

INTRODUCING THE REISER BACON PACKAGING SYSTEM
TH I S C HAN G E S EVE RYTH I N G
Upgrade your retail bacon packaging to a whole new level with the
Reiser Bacon Packaging System. Reiser engineers have done it again.
This time they’ve developed a packaging solution for retail bacon that sets the
new standard. With printed and registered top and bottom films, the ability to
run with or without a carry board, superior seals, EZ peel film, and a package
that can withstand HPP, the high-speed Reiser form/fill/seal packaging
machine brings the newest technology to your bacon packaging line. This
is the one machine that does it all. Not only does it easily produce a range
of retail and bulk package formats on a single machine, the rugged Bacon
Packaging System also eliminates costly maintenance and downtime.
Influence packaging decisionmakers before and during
Canada’s most important
packaging event.
Reach your customers and
prospects through print and online.
Make your company “top of mind”
at the right time…and meet more
buying influencers at the big event.

PACKAGING FINESSE IS NEVER OUT OF STYLE
P
roduced without artificial ingredients or preservatives by the Tualatin,
Ore.-based Pacific Foods of
Oregon Inc., the company’s
Pacific Organic Vegetable Broth
comes in consumer-convenient four-packs of 250ml aseptic Tetra Pak cartons that do due justice
to the all-natural product made from a healthy
blend of simmered carrots, onion, celery, tomatoes,
mushrooms, leeks, sea salt, garlic, savory leaf and
ground bay leaf. Easy to stock at home for future
use for months at a time without refrigeration,
each of the fully-recyclable cartons
is outfitted with a resealable screwcap to enable one to use more than
250-ml of broth if the recipe calls
for it, and the easy-open cap only
requires one full turn to activate a
secondary cutting mechanism inside
to cut through the protective inner
seal in a clean movement that ensures none of the
seal particles make their way into the product contents when pouring it out. With the front-panel
display of the authoritative USDA Organic certification label leaving no doubt about the product’s
natural credentials, the clean earthy graphics on the
paperboard sleeve are fittingly enhanced with easyto-read Nutrition Facts information and best-before
dates featured on side panels of the nestled cartons,
where Tetra Pak’s traditional blue brand logo and
‘Protects What’s Good’ tagline are switched to
dark-green as a nod to the product’s planet-friendly
purity and intent.
You can always tell Valentine’s Day is approaching by the seasonal packaging upgrades to The
Hershey Company’s famed, bite-sized Hershey’s
Kisses chocolate mini-treats. This year offered in
sweet-tooth satisfying Milk Chocolate, Filled with
Caramel, Cherry Cordial and Cookies ‘n’ Creme f lavors, the foil-wrapped nuggets of chocolate candy
indulgence are packed inside 200-gram
stand-up pouches mimicking the treat’s
iconic, f lat-bottom teardrop shape.
Each of the four attention-grabbing pouches boasts its distinctive color scheme and graphics to
play up the f lavor variety packed
inside, and topped off with an easy-tear notch at
the top of the f lexible package for quick-and-easy
instant gratification.
Resembling a vintage hat box, the round two-piece
folding carton containing a 120-gram wheels of
carefully wrapped Rondoux Triple Crème Cheese—
produced by Agropur Dairy Cooperative as a
new addition to its Agropur Signature line of gourmet cheeses—exudes class and elegance that deftly
suits the creamy dairy indulgence inside. Made
from milk and fresh cream, this fine
cheese is one of those rare foods
that gets better with age—its
texture ripening to make the
remaining cheese even creamier after first unwrapping it. The
matching circular round label keeps
things clean and simple with a stylish
cow logo in the middle and easy-to-read lettering
to denote the product essentials, with the bottom
of the box providing further details on this mouthmelting bit of inspired dairy excellence.
Hand-made in Nova Scotia’s scenic Annapolis
Valley by Burnt Out Solutions Inc. (BOSI)
and packaged in a 9.9-gram plastic push-up tube
with a f lip-top lid—the Nova Scotia Fisherman
Xtreme Lip Care is a premium-quality lip conditioner infused with locally-sourced sea kelp and a
wealth of other all-natural and organic ingredients
such as beeswax, jojoba seed oil, coconut oil, citrus
extracts and other gluten-free goodies all listed on

In the rarefied world of fine scotch, The Glenrothes
Select Reserve Speyside single malt scotch whiskey—
distilled, matured and bottled in Scotland—stands
out as a masterclass of packaging elegance with
a 750-ml glass decanter that subliminally draws
one’s attention to the clear amber nectar contained
inside. Carefully nestled in a
precision die-cut open-face
cardboard box stamped only
with the name of the brand
on the top and that of the
brand-owner (Berry Bros.
& Rudd of London) at the
base, the gently-curved
glass decanter—a throwback to the legendary The
Glenrothes
Extraordinary
Single Cask 1970 handblown lead crystal decanter­—is simply decorated
with a color-matching label that perfectly complements the silky-like liquid, rather than obstruct
it. Featuring faithfully replicated signatures of the
distiller and malt master—along with a few select
tasting character notes—the unpretentious label is
a fitting ref lection of the product’s sensual visual
appeal and refined, gentlemanly elegance.

the product’s highly legible, ruggedly handsome
product label adorned with ubiquitous ‘old man and
the sea’ graphics for maximum
visual impact. Although placing the tubes on store-shelves
individually can be tricky, the
company’ branded galvanized
steel buckets brilliantly overcome that shortcoming with
rustic shelf presence that leaves
competing lip-care products
behind by a nautical mile.
