2009-03-25-New Velcro Closure Bags


http://www.prweb.com/releases/2009/03/prweb2263744.htm

CANIDAE All Natural Pet Foods Introduces New Easy-Open, Easy-Pour, Velcro Closures On 30 Pound and Larger Bags, Offering Convenience and Freshness

These revolutionary Velcro closure bags are the first of their kind in the mainstream pet food industry.

San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2009

CANIDAE® All Natural Pet Foods began rolling out its improved, patented Easy-Open, Easy-Pour bags featuring durable Velcro® closures in March.

CANIDAE bags with the new Easy-Open, Easy-Pour, Easy-Seal feature are beginning to appear in the marketplace now on 35 lb. and 44 lb. “Big Bags” of CANIDAE All Life Stages Formula and will soon be featured on all 30 lb. and larger CANIDAE formulas.

These revolutionary Velcro closure bags are the first of their kind in the mainstream pet food industry. The improved design is a direct result of customer feedback for improvements on CANIDAE’s previous easy open, easy pour bag feature. Designed to keep food fresher longer, prevent accidental spills and keep out contaminants, these easy-to-use bags are designed with an exclusive re-sealable pouring spout that allows the pet owner to dispense just the right amount of dog food then seal the bag by pressing the built-in Velcro strip. These patented bags are much easier to open and they re-close and re-seal time and time again without wearing out. Pet owners get a perfect seal every time. Taping the bag or rolling it down to keep food fresh will no longer be necessary.

These new Velcro closures will appear on the 30 pound bags of CANIDAE Lamb and Rice, Chicken and Rice, Beef and Fish, CANIDAE PLATINUM®, Grain Free All Life Stages, Grain Free Salmon, and on both the 35 pound and 44 pound “Big Bag” of CANIDAE All Life Stages.
