Chantler Packaging Inc. Celebrates 85th Anniversary
MISSISSAUGA, ON - This year, Chantler Packaging celebrates its 85th anniversary in the industry.
“We have built some tremendous relationships with our partners in the food industry over the years,” Grant Ferguson, Chantler Packaging’s VP of Sales and Marketing, said in a press release. “There are a variety of customers out there with different needs and we enjoy solving them.”
Starting with two brothers back in 1930 as Chantler and Chantler and selling some of the first injection moulding machinery imported to North America, the company remains a family-run business with Roy Ferguson serving as CEO. According to Chantler Packaging, the business extended from moulding to flexible packaging in the 1960’s for the industrial, floral, and agricultural industries.
After 85 years, the company now packages and ships food for buyers, distributors, and grocery retail chains throughout Canada, USA, Mexico, and Spain. Today, the company stated it continues to use industry insights and expert engineering to develop food packaging solutions.
Developers of PrimePro®, an atmospheric packaging modified to absorb ethylene gas to extend produce shelf-life, and the EnduroPouch™, a package with strong handles using minimal materials, the company defines its brand with strategy and engineered solutions to address concerns about food waste and carbon footprints.
“Low packaging costs cannot simply be the only concern for stakeholders,” Ferguson said. The company stated that it did not miss that this milestone falls when CBC News reports on a recent Value Chain Management International study illustrate food waste cost has increased 15% since 2010, the time of the last study. “Decreasing food waste and lowering carbon footprints are significant factors that save food, the environment, and overall costs in the long run.”
This is an issue that Chantler Packaging said it takes seriously when creating packaging solutions, and will continue to do so.
Congratulations on eight-and-a-half decades in the business!
