Dure Foods Flexible Packaging

Flexible Packaging for Your Business

If you represent a company that sells or uses any type of dry powdered foods, having the right packaging and quantity that best suits your customer base will play a significant role in how well it sells.

That’s why it is important to find quality flexible packaging and custom packaging options for your powdered food products. The attractiveness and practicality of the packaging, plus the relevance of the size/amount to your customer base will go a long way in making the product a success or not.

That is why companies, like Dure Foods, offer so many packaging options, including customized options. We understand that every business or retailer has unique needs and a unique customer base for their powdered food products.

To help you make the best choices for your packaging needs, it is of course important that you are firstly intimately familiar with the needs and preferences of your store or business as well as of your customers. Then, with that in mind, consider:

Type of Packaging

When it comes to packaging dry powdered food products, there is a wide array of options to choose from. Dure Foods, for example, offers the following packaging types:

  • Sacs
  • Bags
  • Pillow Pouches
  • Pouches
  • Sachets
  • Tins
  • Plastic Jars

With this many options, regardless of what type of storage or shelf space you have, and what type of packaging will be most relevant to your customer base, you can find the packaging style that suits your product and needs best.

Size Options

Having the appropriate packaging sizes truly does play an enormous role in making sure a product is appealing to a customer or is ideal for your use, and therefore has a lot to do with customer satisfaction.

Packaging that is too large for you or your customers’ needs will lead to a product going to waste, while packaging that never has enough will lead you or your customer to purchasing the product repeatedly at less than cost effective prices.

That is why Dure Foods has a wide spectrum of sizes so that whatever your needs are, you can find what works best for you. Dure offers:

  • Super sacs, for seriously large, bulk orders
  • 50 lb bag options
  • 25 lb bulk boxes
  • 2 lb pillow pouches
  • 500 g pouches
  • 28 g sachets
  • 4’ in diameter composite tins
  • Jars of varying sizes

Whether you need bulk, or whether you are selling to customers who just need household amounts, the variety of packaging sizes Dure Foods offers can meet your needs.

Additionally, Dure also offers custom packaging, so even if all of their options still fail to meet your needs, they are happy to work with you to tailor packaging ideal for your situation.


For better or worse, the aesthetic and name of the label does play a surprisingly strong role in customers’ selection of a product. That is why Dure Foods provides both their company label as well as private label programs, utilizing shrink sleeve labeling for their plastic jars.

What is great about working with a company like Dure Foods, though, again is that they pride themselves in packaging development and custom packaging so they can work with their customers to find the best packaging solution for them, including custom labeling.

Whatever your packaging needs, Dure Foods offers the variety and the quality you need to get the ideal packaging for your business. Click here to learn more about the packaging options you can have with Dure Foods.

What You Should Know About GMO

What You Should Know About GMO

How much do you know about GMOs? Even if you stay well informed of everything you put into your body, you may not know when you are consuming GMOs.

It’s been over two decades since the first genetically modified (GM, also called genetically engineered) crops were approved in Canada in 1996.

GMOS, “Genetically Modified Organisms”, are present in as much as 80% of North American processed foods, particularly in the US which utilizes a much broader range of modified crops. GMOs are banned or closely monitored in the majority of other countries, however, in Canada foods containing GMO’s have been ruled safe for sale and are not required to be labeled as containing GMO’s. Not only are we unaware when we are consuming GMOs, the majority of people are unaware of the potential risks associated with GMO consumption.

1. Overall Health

Of all the newscast or articles you have encountered about GMOs, how many of them have told you the affects GMOs really have on your health?

  • Numerous studies have shown that GMOs can effect and cause gastrointestinal problems, organ health, immune system disorders, increased early again, and infertility to name a few.
  • Many medical organizations urge GMO free diets, including the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, The American Public Health Association, and The American Nurses Association.
  • GMOs were introduced in 1996, since then, there has seen an increase in illnesses. Though, there is no sufficient scientific proof linking the GMOs to the increase of illnesses such as Autism, food allergies, reproductive disorders and digestive problems; many health care professionals believe that is no coincidence and we should switch to GMO free diets now rather than later.

2. Food Allergies

Unknowingly consuming a food or product that you are allergic to can not only cause an inconvenient reaction and sickness, in many cases it can lead to more serious problems. This is one of many risks to consuming foods containing GMOs.

  • Genetically altered foods, GMOs, can sometimes be genetic combinations or contain cross strands of other products. When unknowingly consumed, these GMOs, lead to health risks for the unknown and possibly allergic consumer.
  • Studies have shown that since GMOs have been introduced, allergic reactions to food and ongoing allergies have shown a drastic increase both in individuals consuming GMOs and farm workers exposed to BT sprays on GMO crops.

3. Lack of Labeling

Even when you are trying to avoid foods containing GMOs, it won’t come as easy as reading labels at the supermarket. Despite peoples demands for all GMO products to be labeled, there is currently no law requiring labels on foods containing GMOs. You can find some foods that are labeled with Non-GMO stickers, but the majority of products leave you with a lack of information regarding GMOs.

4. Genetics

Though, thorough research has not been conducted, it is believed that GMOs could have long term effects on the genetics of the human race. No scientific evidence has been presented, but given the health effects that GMOs have from consumption and their effects on the environment; the long term effects of GMOs are believed to be greater than the current effects of consuming GMOs.
