Meal and Product Kit Packaging Systems

Meal Kits Growing in Multiple Styles

Pre-packaged meal kits and salads – in a variety of structures and business models – have exploded during the past several years.

Frozen food sections in grocery stores are now filled with microwaveable or skillet meals – each containing a variety of IQF ingredients pre-dosed into a single package. Meal delivery services have also grown rapidly – combining fresh produce and meats with smaller, single-serve sachet and stick packs for sauces, seasonings, and other recipe ingredients.

Each format requires a packaging system designed to deliver an end result that is cost-effective and designed for growth.

ROI Drives Use in Other Industries

The idea that pre-packaged kits is limited to food products couldn’t be further from the truth.

The automated packaging of product kits – whether for hardware, automotive, or other applications – can replace what can sometimes be a labor intensive – and expensive – process.

Ohlson has spent more than 50 years in the packaging industry, and we use that experience to quickly identify where our customers can make the biggest impact in their labor costs.
