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.
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.
