Secondary is the kitting and over packing of products into master cases & displays a good example of secondary is a variety of different flavored wrapped candy bars that get packed into retail display. The retail display is the Secondary package.

Can Food & Non Food products be packaged in the same facility?

At Action-Pak Food and Non-Food assembly are always kept in separate buildings and rooms. One building handles FDA & Food regulated items while another focus’ on industrial product assembly and pack out. A contract packer who doesn’t follow this rule should be carefully scrutinized? By combining Food and Non Food services there is always a danger of cross contamination. And a brand is to important to risk.

Can you give us some real examples of recent projects?

Food: A new on-line commerce site wanted to sell private labeled Coconut Oil B2C. We worked with their supplier and arranged for several 20 ft sea containers to come directly to our door from the Philippines . We designed and provided two types of packages. One 32 oz jar and another single serve stick pack for sampling.

The product arrived in 300 gallon totes and required Organic certification . Our company is Organic registered and FDA inspected so the product was safe in our care and custody . We did both the Primary & Secondary Packaging . We also palletized and delivered the product to the clients Distribution Center.

fit bit display

Non-Food: A high end supplier of permanent fixtures designed a complicated in store display for a new product from ”Fit Bit”. The project required over 2,000 displays to be wired up ,assembled and packaged for distribution to Target . Time was running short and they didn’t have the space or resources to make their Spring launch date.

We quickly stepped in and developed a team which included them and formed a plan of Action, by adding a second shift the entire project was completed in half the time.

FDA Assembly and Packaging

ActionPak is also registered with the FDA to do packaging- relabeling and 510K product assembly ;ie. A client was launching a new test kit that consisted of a measuring device to determine a patients level of free radical proteins . The test used an oral saliva swab that needed to be protected in an FDA vapor barrier bag. The kit consisted of 30 wrapped packages along with the electronic device. We provided all the packaging materials , design and assembly under their on site QC inspection. Our team effort succeeded.
