2021 San Francisco Cannabis Infused Drink Expo and What we Learned.

What a great time we had meeting venders and supplies, Learning more about what it takes to help our customer succeed in the Cannabis Infused Drink Market.

Weather you are looking for , Glass or Aluminum there are many options for your sustainable packaging needs. What we have found is , the Most Popular Option is the Aluminum can, because of the low cost of printing custom brands direct on the product, even with the loss of damage in line production, it is  much lower in cost especially the labor cost of hands on with installing the sleeves. This is the best route for large volume SKU's  But because you can purchase the Minimum of 100k non printed cans and ends with as low as 1000 in sleeves per SKU, the can is very versatile for your cost effective presentation of your product and for your new product lines to produce. 

What we did find is the cost can be a shock if you do not do the proper research on what your options are. From Farm to Table options with filling machines for the do it yourselfer or Filling companies that can do it for you all the way to sleeve installation and packaging distribution ready.   (Aluminum Cans and Sleeves are customer provided.)
