Dowagiac, Michigan, September 03, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- RNS Packaging Corp. has been named a winner in the Innovative Product category of the New Product Showcase Awards at the 2014 SuperZoo pet industry trade show that was held July 22-24 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
RNS Packaging received the New Product Showcase Award for its FunPak sustainable packing materials. FunPak was voted for by pet industry retailers in attendance at SuperZoo as one of their favorite items from the New Product Showcase. Select exhibitors were rewarded for their innovative efforts through the 2014 awards.
FunPak is a premium anti-static biodegradable packing peanut that utilizes a proprietary starch based formula and a patented compression resistant "Dog Bone" design that’s non-toxic, safe for kids, pets and is therefore easier to dispose of than other packing materials.
Rich Daniels, president and founder of RNS Packaging said, “We’re thrilled to be selected as a winner of the Innovative Products Award at this year’s SuperZoo event. This is an important vote of confidence and acceptance of our FunPak packaging product on the part of leading pet retailers nationwide.”
