Press Release: Vibrant Pouches Help Surpass Turkey Sales Goals by 26 Percent - April 2012

(Appleton, Wis.) – Increased visibility, high perceived value, and greater customer convenience all come together in this vibrant turkey carry pouch developed by Flair Flexible Packaging for Mr. Pavo® brand turkeys of PRONACA (Quito, Ecuador). Highlighted by a lustrous matte/gloss combination, the 565mm x 415mm + 220mm (22.2’’ x 16.3’’ + 8.7’’) three-side seal, stand-up pouch sports a photo-quality 10-color reverse rotogravure image of a perfectly roasted turkey. The two-hole die-cut handle is placed between an innovative double-reinforced permanent seal that ensures product safety and strengthens the pouch to withstand the weight of a whole turkey.

Inside the pouch constructed of PET and WHITE OCTENE-LLDPE, Mr. Pavo® has packaged a full-size uncooked turkey in a nylon ovenable bag, complete with a foolproof seasoning packet. The express intent of the colorful exterior pouch was to advertise the Mr. Pavo® brand and showcase the convenience of both carrying and cooking the enclosed turkey. According to Manuel Franco, marketing manager for poultry business at PRONACA, “The new presentation of the Mr. Pavo® products in the new pouch from Flair surpassed our expectations. This product is a new and unique product in the domestic market — an easy, fast, and delicious alternative that does not break with traditional turkey flavors. They were very well received by customers from the first moment, and sales exceeded the planned budget by 26 percent.”

Franco commented on this excellent example of well-designed flexible packaging solutions helping to significantly increase sales of the quality products they help represent. “The success of this concept is simply because the product and presentation are top quality. It’s the combination of an easy-to-prepare turkey, in packaging that is colorful, easy to recognize and remember, with the added convenience of easy-to-carry handles.”

Originally planned as a seasonal promotion for Christmas and Easter, producers of Mr. Pavo® brand turkeys intend to utilize the specialized pouches from Flair Flexible Packaging year-round. “We want to change the minds of consumers and suggest turkey for every occasion, or even as part of a daily menu, instead of just serving it on special occasions. Our new packaging will help us achieve that goal,” Franco commented.

As packaging consultants, designers and producers, the team at Flair Flexible Packaging works with customers to determine pouch and closure design to meet any given product’s size, temperature and display requirements.
