LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - All American Pet Company, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AAPT) -- Back-to-back production runs at our co-packer of 2000 pounds of NutraBars™ and CHEWIES™ have reaffirmed the installation of packaging equipment for AAPT's Kansas facility.
The company is currently installing a high speed flow wrapper and automated box filling carton equipment that will push-out more than 1000 packaged cases an hour -- that translates to 100,000 bars per hour running on just a single shift. Filling and sealing CHEWIES at 20 canisters per minute will place 200,000 units on pallets every month -- also running on just a single shift.
The overwhelming response to NutraBar and CHEWIES brands at its recent trade show booth has excited the buyers of the nation's biggest retailers -- super stores, drug stores, convenience stores, supermarkets, pet specialty, truck stops and sporting goods chains -- to the product's unique convenience, super premium quality and attractive pricing. The huge quarter-pound NutraBars and one-pound CHEWIES are the go anywhere, do anything, anytime food and treat. Both brands are super premium quality, with no-by-products with all natural 25% protein formulas that will satisfy even the fussiest dog and the most quality conscious dog owner.
Barry Schwartz, CEO, AAPT, said, "We had to take our packaging in house to assure that meeting the extraordinary demand for NutraBars and CHEWIES would be supported with a consistent supply source. We can run additional shifts and expand to additional lines to maintain active inventory levels. We've got a hit and we're taking it all the way."
