We’ve worked with numerous companies to develop their private labeling range for dates and date ingredients. Get in touch with us to learn more about our capabilities and quantities. We can adapt any design you have in mind, or assist you to develop artwork from start to finish.


Cardboard carton box is an economical solution to package bulk items. We can arrange full colour printed carton boxes according to your design, and print at impressive scale.


Plastic squeeze bottles are an ideal option for Date Syrup. Printed labels are applied to the front and back. Bottle cap can also be colored to match the design scheme.


Pillow Bags are a common type of flexible packaging option. The bag allows for brand messaging at the front and the back, and can also feature a window for customers to preview contents.


Stand Up Pouches are functional, lightweight pouch and an increasingly popular means of display. Adding a pouch window gives customers a preview of contents on-shelf.


Vacuum packaging is a highly durable method that comes with a sealed label. This packaging reduces atmospheric oxygen, limiting the growth of aerobic bacteria or fungi.
