New Package Featuring PrimaPak(TM) Technology Launches on East Coast 
Clear Lam Packaging, Inc. Expands Market With New Flexible,
Stackable, Recloseable Package for Flavor Tree Branded Dark Chocolate
CHICAGO, IL  -- (Marketwired) -- 11/14/13 --   Just in time for the
holidays, a new package innovation featuring the revolutionary
PrimaPakâ„¢ packaging system is launching at a regional East Coast
retailer. Developed for John B. Sanfilippo & Son's Flavor Tree brand,
the Limited Edition Premium Dark Chocolate Pretzels will be sold
throughout the holidays. The patented and patent pending PrimaPakâ„¢
technology is designed to replace heavy rigid packaging and improve
shelf appeal. It achieves up to 70 percent weight savings compared to
plastic jars, reduces warehousing demands and truck shipments while
improving costs and enhancing sustainability initiatives throughout
the supply chain.  
"We're delighted to see the new PrimaPakâ„¢ application on retail
shelves and excited about the opportunity to showcase the package's
vertical strength and stackability," said James Sanfilippo, CEO of
Clear Lam Packaging, Inc. "The customized design for Flavor Tree
pretzels creates a gift wrapped presentation perfect for the
holidays. The package is made from a single roll of film on a
PrimaPakâ„¢ bagging machine and it's really easy for consumers to use
and then throw away." 
To create a flexible package capable of being stacked and to better
protect products inside, Clear Lam developed a new method of
enhancing the package rigidity. The end result is a pop-up box shape
with greater consumer appeal. The finished package retains its shape,
performs well during transport, and stores well on retail shelves as
well as in consumer pantries. In addition, the Peel and ReSeal Lid
opens easily, stays open, and reseals to the package with a light
The PrimaPakâ„¢ package is a flexible package produced from custom
rollstock on a PrimaPakâ„¢ vertical form-fill-seal (VFFS) machine.
Designed as a replacement for rigid cans, bottles, jars, trays and
select flexible packaging, the PrimaPakâ„¢ package can be produced in a
variety of different shapes and sizes. It can also be contoured into
custom shapes such hexagons or octagons. The PrimaPakâ„¢ package has
six sides allowing for maximum on-pack marketing to build enthusiasm
for your brand. The technology reduces the package cube up to 30
percent or more, maximizing manufacturing efficiencies and improving
warehousing space and transportation demands. Each benefit offers
multiple opportunities to achieve measurable cost savings and
sustainability improvements throughout the supply chain.  
Additional PrimaPakâ„¢ applications and further product expansions are
planned in 2014, according to Clear Lam. 
Clear Lam has invested extensively in the development of new
packaging designs and equipment that offer CPG brand owners,
retailers, and private label manufacturers a fully integrated,
end-to-end packaging solution. The PrimaPakâ„¢ technology will support
corporate sustainability and efficiency efforts, the need to
strengthen on-shelf merchandising and provide convenience to
