FRESH-LOCK BY PRESTO PRODUCTS, Child-Guard
The challenge of getting Kirkland Signature® Ultra Clean Laundry Detergent Pacs product from a rigid tub to a fully recyclable, child-resistant pouch from idea to shelf in less than one year was a feat on its own. Costco desired a new packaging solution that was a better consumer experience in the areas of sustainability, transportation, and safety yet also needed to be more cost-effective than the current package, match the existing number of selling unit per pallet, and be fully commercialized in less than a year. The supplier partners needed to work together as one cohesive team to propel the project forward through the long list of obstacles including a global pandemic and often battled competing deliverables. The outcomes achieved through the successful supplier collaboration process were plentiful. The final package was an industry breakthrough in pouch size, performance, and shelf impact making this project truly special.
