Zenify stress relief drink launches in first Rexam 12 oz. SLEEK® can with tactile printing

“Live Stress Free.” That’s the mantra of Zenify, the 100 percent natural stress relief drink. Looking for a truly distinctive package that would exemplify the look and feel of its brand, the company chose to launch in the first Rexam 12oz. SLEEK® can in the U.S. to utilize tactile printing technology.

Zenify is a clean and extremely refreshing stress relief drink.  It contains 25 times more stress-relieving antioxidants than green tea, but without the caffeine. The drink’s blend of natural antioxidants and amino acids has been clinically shown to increase alpha waves in the brain, elevate serotonin and dopamine levels and reduce stress without drowsiness. Zenify also includes 100 percent of the recommended dietary allowance of five B-Vitamins, which are designed to work synergistically in the beverage to reduce stress.

“80% of working Americans are chronically stressed. Our goal was to create the most effective and best-tasting stress relief drink on the market, one that you can drink throughout the day to clear your mind and stay focused,” said Adam Rosenfeld, founder and formulator of Zenify. “And we wanted a unique design that would be a differentiator. Working closely with Rexam, we created just that.”

“The tactile printing adds another dimension to the brand,” said Brian Liu, co-founder of Zenify. “In addition to taste, sight and smell, our product now has a distinct texture all its own. We’ve already received tremendous customer feedback on the new can.”

In addition to its exclusive tactile can design, Zenify benefits from the many inherent advantages of aluminum cans including portability, durability and sustainability. Aluminum cans are infinitely recyclable with cans able to be melted, converted to cans again and back on retail shelves within 60 days. In the last 15 years, the beverage can industry has reduced the overall carbon footprint of the aluminum can by more than 45 percent. These facts help make cans the most recycled beverage container in the world with a U.S. recycling rate of 65.1 percent, more than double the rate of other beverage packages.  

Rich Grimley, president and CEO, Rexam BCNA, commented on how Zenify’s unique packaging will benefit its brand and business. “Our 12oz. SLEEK can is already a great solution to help brands attract attention on store shelves. Utilizing our tactile printing technology takes it one step further, allowing the product to stand out even more, while benefiting from the inherent advantages of cans that include superior recycling, filling, distribution and retail display economics.”

In addition to reducing stress and tension, the company is committed to helping bridge divides. Zenify is the first corporate partner of The Coexist Foundation, donating five percent of its profits to the global non-profit organization focused on increasing understanding and reducing conflict throughout the world.

Zenify is currently available at select natural and specialty retailers in New York and California, with plans for continued expansion.

President of Stand-Up Pouches to Outline the Benefits of “Stand Bags” from Both Market and Consumer Perspectives

Joining a long list of flexible material experts, David Marinac will address the packaging industry at an international conference, this June, with a presentation on specialty barrier films. Specifically, Marinac’s session will explore stand-up pouches as a smarter vehicle for packaging, distributing, and marketing liquids—including alcoholic beverages. Mr. Marinac is the president of StandUpPouches.net, a leader in packaging design and production, specializing in stand pouches—one of the fastest-growing segments in the sector.  

“As a society, our packaging has gotten fat,” explains David Marinac, president of StandUpPouches.net and featured speaker at the Multilayer Packaging Films conference, to be held at the DoubleTree Chicago Magnificent Mile. “Rigid containers are heavy and wasteful. Stand-up pouches are gaining traction because they’re less expensive to produce, they provide more customizable surface area for branding, and they keep contents fresh for a longer period of time. From a consumer perspective, lightweight pouches also show that companies care about the environment. Pouches are landfill-friendly, recyclable, and they consume less energy in shipping.”

By focusing on stand bags for wine and spirits, Marinac’s presentation addresses two significant market trends. Both stand-up pouches and adult beverages are reporting annual gains along with strong upward momentum through 2013. Pouch packaging sales are expected to reach $4 billion by 2016, according to an Allied Development Corporation Study. Meanwhile, wine and spirit sales continue to climb, despite a slow economic recovery.

“Barrier film packaging is a win-win solution for marketers and consumers,” concludes Marinac. “Quality beverage brands can reduce their production costs and expand their presence on major retail shelves by rethinking distribution and branding strategies. That starts with better liquid packaging.”

About StandUpPouches.net
StandUpPouches.net designs and supplies custom, stand-up packaging made from multilayer, laminated film. SUP pouches keep products fresher, longer, while protecting contents from moisture, vapor, oxygen, odor, light, or puncture. StandUpPouches.net is a division of ABC Packaging Direct, based in Cleveland, Ohio.

Stand Bags eco-friendly and a smarter vehicle for packaging, distributing and marketing liquids and dry goods.  President of Stand Up Pouches speaking at Barrier Film Packaging Conference June 5 in Chicago outlining benefits of stand up pouches from market and consumer perspectives.
