According to recent industry statistics from the HPBA Barbecue Lifestyle, Usage & Attitude Study, dry meat rubs continue to remain popular among barbecue consumers. In fact, dry rub usage increased among all grill owners to 21 percent, from 14 percent in 2009. With numerous homemade recipes to choose from, many entrepreneurs have taken to packaging and bottling their own secret recipes for sale in various venues. To assist in this process, Assemblies Unlimited ( — http://www.assemblies.com), a full service contract packaging company, has announced they can now fill dry powders, liquids, gummy supplements or confectionery into plastic or glass bottles. In addition, the company can also provide custom dry powder and liquid pouching services.
Says Randy Shaw, "Unlike some contract fillers, we source and supply any packaging materials required for the project, including printed film, bottles, caps, labels, retail folding cartons, corrugated cartons and more that may required for our client's food packaging project. Part of this service includes defining the pouch size based on your fill weights along with a 3D pallet optimization program that can help determine the best 'cube' for shipping your goods cost effectively."
Where bottle filling is concerned, Shaw explains, "Assemblies Unlimited (http://www.assemblies.com) has several full service bottling lines including auger or volumetric fillers, automatic cappers, metal detection, induction sealers, ink jet machines, automatic labeling and full body shrink sleeving with a steam tunnel. So, certainly, we can do a great deal more than just BBQ rubs and their packaging. However, with the number of new businesses expanding their lines, from gumballs and candies to specialty olive oils and spices, we have consumers consistently calling and inquiring all the time if we can handle their business. The answer is a resounding yes."
Shaw goes on to say, "For powders, we can fill seasonings, spices, flavorings, sea salt blends, pepper blends, whey protein, dietary energy mixes and a number of other dry blended ingredients. We can also source and procure any of the raw packaging materials locally including printed labels, retail folding cartons, counter displays, corrugated inner cartons or master cases and then can manage the complete food packaging project for clients from start to finish. The bottling facility is SQF and GFSI certified."
