Entenmann’s® Launches Modified Packaging to Keep Favorites on Retail Shelves | New
HORSHAM, Pennsylvania., October 1, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The Next Time You Buy Your Favorite Entenmann’s® products in full size, you may notice the packaging is a little different. The clear cellophane “window” that has featured its donuts, cookies and cakes for decades will be temporarily replaced with a photo of the sweet baked goods inside. Some Entenmann Danish will be in transparent clamshell packaging.
There is no change on any of the products, but why this subtle change in the boxes? This is in response to a material supply disruption caused by Hurricane Ida. At September 1st, a dam erupted near the Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, a facility that produces Entenmann’s packaging, seriously flooding the facility. The event destroyed 5,000 tonnes of packaging inventory and caused critical damage to the machines that produce the cartons and boxes. The emergency severely impacted Entenmann’s entire supply chain – from the bakeries that produce the sweet baked goods to those that deliver them fresh to retailers every day – and caused a brief disruption in the supply chain. product availability.
“Our goal is to ensure that our consumers can continue to enjoy their favorite Entenmann’s products,” said Jason amar, Marketing Director at Entenmann’s, Bimbo Bakeries United States. “Designing and printing classic Entenmann boxes with the window is a specialized solution. Changing the packaging to a windowless option and clam shells offers the fastest way to get products back on the shelf. “
The company’s swift actions are also protecting the livelihoods of hundreds of people across the sweet baked goods supply chain, from ingredient suppliers to retailers, many of whom were also affected by the hurricane. Ida in the northeast.
As Americans experience shortages of consumer goods, including groceries, Entenmann’s creative response is a welcome change to empty shelves.
“Rest assured the products haven’t changed,” Amar said. “Your delicious favorites taste the same, and the modified packaging will have no impact on freshness or quality.”
The changed packaging will hit shelves from this week and will last until at least the end of 2021.
