A. Over the years, we have noticed an increase with damaged product due to the plastic wrap failing to stand up to customer handling. We would replace damaged product to ensure quality and food safety. Some products were damaged beyond consumption and had to be thrown out. At a certain point, one wonders if there is a better way.
The new box provides much better protection from a food safety point of view – recommended to us by Provincial Food Inspectors. With continuous changes to label requirements, we also needed more surface area to meet compliance. The last thing we want is someone to become ill due to poor packaging and label issues, and we want to provide as much factual information as possible.
The new packaging also presents better for our retail clients helping them feel more confident with our product. It helps encourage new people to try our pies to ensure our longevity. This move to change packing didn’t come lightly and we spent months trying to come up with the best possible solution.
