Kangaroo Brands introduces tamper-evident packages and longer shelf life Tuesday, July 27, 2010
Kangaroo Brands is once again leading in deli innovation with its specialty breads. New packaging has a family look along with tamper-evident, re-sealable package to preserve freshness. Kangaroo has also reformulated all of its breads to have a 14-day shelf life. This is big news!
Kangaroo’s specialty bread line is the original "thin" bread that is the perfect and contemporary tie-in partner for deli-style chicken, tuna and ham salads – less bread, less mess and less bad stuff. The bright white package mirrors the breads’ clean ingredient list and the tamper-evident, re-sealable bags keep the product fresher, longer without added preservatives or bad stuff.
“The new packaging and naturally extended shelf life equates to less waste for consumers,” says Kangaroo Brands Owner George Kashou. Look out for new varieties of bread to hit the shelves this fall. To see Kangaroo's bread products, click here .
