1. Wonder Gummies Pouch Keeps Little Fingers Out
Cresco labs recently launched the Wonder Wellness brand to augment its portfolio of national cannabis brands. Wonder Gummies, the brand’s most recent offering, is packaged in a child-resistant Mylar stand-up pouch. It launched in April 2021.
“The Wonder Gummies pouch is a CR, reclosable pouch with a Fresh-Lock 8511 zipper,” says Stephen Nichols, brand marketing director at Cresco Labs. Presto Products supplies the zipper, which features patent pending technology.
To access the gummies, consumers pull open the top of the pouch, lift a hidden inner flap, pinch the flap using one hand, pinch the outer edge of the pouch using the other hand, and then pull the two sides apart to open the package.
The double-lock zipper is made from recyclable polyethylene and has Food and Drug Administration approval for food contact. It was designed for small pouches and for products that require oxygen and moisture protection — a natural for gummies.
The zipper, which is CR certified, has audible and tactile features that provide sensory cues when the pouch is opened and has been reclosed securely.
