They are packaged in 9-oz PET containers supplied by Parker Plastics, then sealed and capped with polystyrene foam tamper-evident membranes and polypropylene NutraFlapper easy-dispensing closures supplied by Weatherchem Corp.. The full-body shrink labels, each with a perforated, tamper-evident tear-strip around the cap, are made of plant-based, 100% biodegradable (compostable ASTM D 6400) Earthfirst PLA film manufactured by Plastic Suppliers Inc. and rotogravure-printed in 8 colors by Gilbreth USA.

The half-moon-shaped orifice of the closure provides controlled, no-clog, no-mess dispensing and recloses with a snap sound, signaling that freshness of the remaining all-natural, soluble-fiber product is locked into the container. Chomp’s vp of marketing Sarah Speare says, “Weatherchem came highly recommended by our bottle supplier Parker Plastics.

Sniffers Shake-Ins are being marketed through pet stores, grocery stores, and The retail price is $3.29 to $4.99, depending on store/channel.
