Cold Chain Packaging

Packaging Design Challenge

Cold chain packaging is an exploding business with companies looking to ship product direct to the consumer through a small parcel supply chain. Some of these products are temperature sensitive and require specific packaging in order to survive this supply chain. A large candy supplier recently reached out to BoldtSmith Packaging to develop a cost-effective method of shipping small chocolate parcels.
