Committed to Providing You the Safest and Finest Food Boards

We are proud to announce that we completed our annual AIB International food safety audit and have received a “Superior” rating (930 out of 1000 possible points). We have received a “Superior” rating every year that our food audits have been conducted.

This activity supports our formal corporate HACCP plan and continues to fulfill our obligation of providing the highest quality and safest direct food contact packaging products.

A growing portion of our business has been in market segments that use direct food contact packaging products (baking, seafood, cheese, etc.) These customers have increased their demand for audited, certified food safe manufacturing environments. To meet their requests and exceed their expectations, we proactively contracted with AIB International (American Institute of Baking) to perform annual audits of our manufacturing processes. In all four audits conducted to date, we have received “Superior” ratings ensuring that we provide the safest packaging products.

Globally, during the pandemic, demand for the manufacturing sector plummeted drastically, paperboard being no different, faced the lack of demand. Now while the economy is recovering, the many markets and the paperboard market is experiencing an significant increase in demand. A sudden surge in demand has led to a major imbalance in the demand-supply chain. In addition there is a major shortage in the transportation & trucking availability and those costs have escalated tremendously in recent months, Another factor on the freight costs is most recently the fuel surcharge escalations of 35% due the increased cost of diesel fuel. Due to this gap, the cost of all raw materials has increased multiple times over the past several months, and just today most major paper mills are announcing another 6 to 8% price increase “Effective immediately” with more increases likely to come based upon our conversations with our mills in all paper and board grades. We are doing everything possible to limit these increases and avoid product flow disruptions. But unfortunately, that comes at a cost.

Please be assured that we will continue to evaluate all factors to identify and deliver premium products while controlling costs. We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. If you have any questions about your products specifically, please feel free to contact us.
