Power Packaging Introduces Revolutionary Snapsil Packaging Offering Convenience, Functionality and Innovation

WESTERVILLE, Ohio (April 28, 2009) – Continuing its 40-year history of innovation, and customized manufacturing and packaging solutions, Power Packaging today announced its strategic relationship with Snapsil Corporation and the launch of the new Snapsil® packaging product to the North American food and beverage market. The patented “snapping utensil” is an on-the-go, single-serve package that integrates product storage with a highly functional utensil or applicator in one branded product.

Several varieties are available including stir stick, spoon, fork, knife and other functional concepts. The product’s storage compartment opens to deliver a precise portion of liquid, powder or food product prior to consumption; the consumer then uses it as a utensil. The innovative single-serve packaging can be used to dispense powders, granules, creams or liquid products.

“We are known for bringing new technologies to the market, developing customized solutions and delivering consistent quality that helps build and maintain the brand equity of the world’s leading consumer brand products,” says Geoff Campbell, president of Power Packaging. “Power Packaging is proud to be the exclusive food and beverage contract manufacturing partner to Snapsil Corporation in North America, giving our customers access to the next generation of portable, convenient and novel packaging geared especially toward today’s on-the-go consumer.”

Specific features include:

-- Single portion control
-- Ease of use
-- Tamper evident; sealed lid
-- Brand exposure on lid
