Dare Foods receives award for Bear Paws packaging


ProAmpac announced their flexible packages received a Silver PAC Canadian Leadership Awards in Toronto, for designing the packaging for new children’s snacks.

Silver Winner in New Brand Food & Beverage for packaging of My First Bear Paws Vanilla and My First Bear Paws Oatmeal cookies by Dare Foods Ltd., the Cambridge, Ont.-based manufacturer of cookies, confectionary, fruit snacks, crackers and fine breads.

The intent was to develop packaging for a healthy snack alternative in an attractive design for children, ages five and under. Dare created “Pawley Junior,” a younger version of the brand’s classic mascot used on Bear Paw packaging. This successful graphic update along with ProAmpac’s HD flexographic printing expertise maintained Dare’s brand while enhancing the shelf appeal of this new package.
