UTZ Quality Foods and Pretium Packaging LLC collaborate on new PET snack canister.
When UTZ Quality Foods was looking for ideas for unique PET canisters for their snack mixes, they came to Pretium Packaging LLC. Pretium submitted several distinctive canister designs to the UTZ Product Development Committee. This committee reviewed the designs and selected a canister that was targeted for College Basketball Tournament season. The UTZ and Pretium teams, working collaboratively, refined the canister design to create a distinctive package for UTZ “Hoops Mix”. The final, jointly designed canister is a replica of a basketball rim & net. An impressive aspect of the PET canister features a knotted net detail that is etched to highlight the characteristics of the design. UTZ developed a specialty snack mix, and matched a lid and label to complete the package. The new container & product was made available exclusively at Sam’s Clubs throughout North America.
UTZ Quality Foods, located in Hanover, PA, is one of the nation’s leading regional snack food manufacturers.
