Coast Packaging Teams With The Happy Egg Co. To Bring A Vibrant New Vision To The Marketplace

Coast Packaging is excited to welcome our new client, Happy Egg Co. (http://thehappyeggco.com/). Happy Eggs and Coast Packaging’s synergy began with their California-marketed products and has grown to Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Missouri. We are looking forward to expanding to a fully-national campaign soon!

According to Happy Eggs website, they are redefining the egg industry with truly free-range eggs, with hens guaranteed at least 14 square feet per bird. Their free-range organic egg brands, Happy Egg Co eggs can be found at conventional grocery stores (Safeway/Vons, Kroger/Ralph’s, etc.)

Happy Eggs commitment to being an industry leader in innovation is what brought them to Coast Packaging. Happy Eggs needed packaging that was as unique as their corporate vision. Coast Packaging brought their experience with state-of-the-art picture quality printing technology to provide a superior product to the Happy Egg Co. By teaming up with Coast Packaging, Happy Egg Company has been able to bring vibrant, environmentally-efficient cartons to consumers.

Coast Packaging’s 40 years of experience in the packaging industry have given us an understanding of the needed tooling and technology to produce the highest quality packaging and graphics available. Just as we offered custom printed graphics on our corrugated cardboard packaging to Happy Eggs, Coast Packaging can facilitate your custom printing needs on any corrugated, egg carton, over wrap film or special product. Please give us a call at (800) 624-0838 or contact us at www.coastpackaging.com

Coast Packaging's Own Jim Ford Wins PEPA

Coast Packaging could not be more proud to announce that our very own General Manager  Jim Ford has been named the “Industry Person Of The Year” by The Pacific Egg and Poultry Association (PEPA)! 

The Pacific Egg and Poultry Association is a regional nonprofit agricultural trade association which has served the egg and poultry industry for over 90 years. PEPA’s goal is to enhance the viability of the poultry and egg industries in the eleven Western States and Canada, and its ability to produce and market the highest quality food products to the consumer in a competitive manner.

PEPA has been honoring a member of the poultry industry annually since 1962.  Other past recipients include industry legends like Gary West, Arny Riebli, Ed Demler and Harry Eisen as well as Coast Packaging and Haddy Sales Company founder Joe Haddy.

Coast Packaging is especially proud of Jim Ford for breaking the mold of previous “Industry Person of the Year” winners.  In contrast to most—if not all—past recipients, Jim Ford has never been a poultry or egg producer.  Instead, Jim is being recognized for his commitment to the Egg and Poultry Industry as an allied member.   His career-long dedication to the food and grocery industry began straight out of high school for Jim  stocking shelves in a Boys Markets location in Torrance, CA.  In the late 70’s he became a driver for Orowheat.  From Orowheat he made the transition in to the packaging side of the grocery industry when he was recruited by Keyes Packaging.  Fortunately for Coast Packaging, Ford’s time at Keyes Packaging afforded Haddy Sales Company founder Joe Haddy the opportunity to meet Jim who has now been working for Coast Packaging for over 30 years.

Coast Packaging is honored that PEPA recognizes the value and importance of packaging services to the egg and poultry industry.  As the leading supplier of environmentally friendly packaging in the Western United States, Jim and his team at Coast Packaging are always working hard to bring the egg and poultry industry top-of-the-line, cutting edge products including corrugated cardboard, molded fiber and high graphic custom packaging.  We also strive to supply the best machinery match for their customer’s applications, volumes and budgets.

Choose Coast Packaging for Your Custom Packaging Needs

While Coast Packaging is best known for our excellence in egg packaging and corrugated products for numerous packaging applications, we also offer other solutions for custom packaging needs.  Among these solutions, Coast Packaging is proud to offer custom molded fiber items for high volume orders.

 

Molded fiber is often considered a viable alternative to corrugated cardboard.  It is commonly deemed a sustainable packaging material, as defined by the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, since it is produced from recycled materials, and can be recycled again after its useful life-cycle.  Molded fiber has many diverse applications that can meet your food packaging and protective packaging needs.  It is often used to create cup holders, furniture caps and wine bottle shipping.

 

In keeping with Coast Packaging’s commitment to finding customized solutions for our customers, we have the capacity to manufacture molded fiber in any form to meet your unique needs.  Our custom molded fiber solutions are available for high volume orders.

Coast Packaging Now Carries New Pallet Wrapping Film

Coast Packaging continues its commitment to becoming your “one-stop” packaging spot by carrying a variety of pallet wrapping film.  As always, Coast Packaging is dedicated to competitive prices coupled with the highest level of customer service and product consultation.  All of our customers at Coast Packaging enjoy the fruits of our Just-In-Time service and price sensitivity for any budget.

Pallet Wrap Varieties and Applications

Coast Packaging offers both hand wrap and machine wrap depending on our customers’ needs and scales.  In addition to the standard pallet wrapping film, Coast Packaging also carries vented film for special applications. 

Vented film has strategically placed holes to allow the products to breathe and avoid heat locking.  This particular pallet wrapping film is especially beneficial to the packaging and transport of produce. The specially-formulated film prevents wilting of fruits, vegetables and other live cargo. It also reduces the likelihood of cardboard disintegration from the perspiration of the produce.

 

Printed Pallet Wrap For Helping To Market Your Company

Coast Packaging’s 30 plus years of experience in the packaging industry have given us an understanding of the consumer market which we can use to leverage your brand and drive sales.  Just as we offer custom graphics on our famous corrugated cardboard packaging,  Coast Packaging can facilitate custom logo printing on eligible films and banders.

Coast Packaging Partners with Fox Packaging to Offer More Exciting New Products to Benefit Our Customers

While you may know that Coast Packaging is one of the market leaders for custom corrugated cardboard packaging, you may not know that Coast offers machinery consultation for our customers! Coast Packaging supplies the best machinery match for their customer’s applications, volumes and budgets. From the perspective of the packaging supplier, Coast’s personnel see a lot of machinery applications in the field. Honestly, many work well and many don’t!  As such, we are excited and dedicated to connecting our customers with amazing products like the Fox pallet wrapping machines!

Coast Packaging is Working to Make Your Holiday Season a Happy and Healthy One

Have you started planning out your holiday baking?  Tis the season for holiday parties and get-togethers full of pies, bunt cakes and deviled eggs! So, we here at Coast Packaging are working hard to ensure you serve the safest and healthiest possible baked goods to your friends and loved ones.

If you’re planning to buy your eggs in bulk to satisfy all your festive foodie needs this winter, Coast Packaging’s state-of-the-art Shrink Tech Systems (STS) will provide the highest health and safety standards for your egg packaging. The STS (shrink tech systems) is fully automatic and allows egg farmers to overwrap their corrugated cardboard packaging directly from their egg grading machines.  The eggs are never touched by human hands from the time they are laid by the chicken until the customer opens the package in their home, which minimizes exposure to bacteria and breakage while maximizing efficiency and lowering costs!

In fact, Coast Packaging just sold an STS egg overwrap system to a new customer in Iowa! In doing so, we are hoping our commitment to the highest health and safety standards spreads across the country. Thus, if you’ll be buying 20-egg, 30-egg or 5-dozen egg packs from your local retailers like Walmart, Sam’s Club or Costco, there’s a good chance that Coast Packaging’s STS technology is ensuring the healthiest and happiest holiday season possible!

Stay tuned for more updates on other ways the J.G. Haddy Company (haddycompanies.com) demonstrate their commitment to bringing you the happiest and healthiest holiday season this winter 2013!
