Wm. Bolthouse Farms, Inc., Bakersfield, CA, inventive container permits point-of-use mixing of separate, compartmentalized ingredients without rupturing the main container seal.

A patent from Kraft Foods allows for a reliable reclosure for flexible packaging in a simple and cost efficient manner. One of the problems the invention addresses is to use a cold-seal adhesive in such a way that it does not interfere with consumer access to the package, e.g., by sticking to the consumer's hand. It also reduces the likelihood of food particles or other materials to interfere with the resealability of the packaging. The coating layer can also provide tamper evidence.

A patent from L’Oreal is for a device for packaging that preserves and dispenses an oxygen-sensitive product formulation. In noting the shortcomings of tubes, especially made of metal for such products, the filing points to the benefit of using a deformable membrane that prevents air from reaching the product. It's backed by a filler that overcomes the membrane’s memory so that it retains its new shape. Filler material options include calcium carbonate, silica and more.

What can a brand owner do with multiple lines of complimentary products that wants consumers to understand those connections quickly, visually and at the point-of-purchase? Do what SC Johnson did: Invent a way to do that using packaging design cues that coordinate related visual and textual cues across multiple, but complimentary products as an effective on-package consumer education method.  For more information, see the patent link below.
