Berry is now an official provider of design and development services to vendors, sellers or manufacturers for packaging that is in compliance with Amazon’s guidelines and certification test methods. The APASS program was designed by Amazon to help support vendors, sellers and manufacturers to obtain certification of their products as Frustration Free Packaging (FFP), Ships-in-Own-Container (SIOC) or Prep-Free Packaging (PFP).
As part of the APASS network, Berry will guide brand owners and manufacturers towards robust, custom primary package solutions that protect their products from the rigorous e-commerce shipping environment. The Company’s engineering and design teams are qualified to develop packaging that passes ISTA-6 testing protocol while delighting the consumer. In addition, Berry offers a selection of pre-tested e-commerce ready packaging that currently includes bottles, tubes, jars, containers, and closures for the beauty and personal care, home care, health care, and food industries. “We are excited to add this program to the list of valuable solutions we are providing for our customers and look forward to supporting their success in this fast-growing channel,” says Mike Hill, EVP Global Healthcare and Specialties.
