Salmon bits sprinkled or spooned

Look out, bacon bits, here comes a challenger: Alaskabits(TM) smoked salmon bits. Deemed the Grand Prize winner in an annual contest promoting nontraditional uses of Alaska salmon, the dried, smoked bits of premium filet are said to be a more healthful alternative to pork toppings because they're higher in protein and lower in cholesterol and animal fats.

Packaging used for the innovative new product marketed by the Alaska Food Group in Juneau Alaska allows controlled sprinkling or measuring by spoon thanks to a 43-mm dual-flap Flapper® from Weatherchem (Twinsburg OH). The injection-molded PP threaded closure is lined with a PS22 foam liner from Tekni-Plex (Somersville NJ) and the attractive p-s paper labels printed offset in five colors plus UV-cured coating are from Northwest Label and Design (Seattle WA). Metrolina Plastics (Richmond VA) makes the injection stretch/blow-molded bottles.
