New short-run offset printing packaging firm shows-off its quick turnaround, high quality, and smaller run length cartons and packages at the Montreal trade show.

SoOPak, a new short-run offset printing North American packaging specialist headquartered in Mississauga, Ont., lured crowds of interested attendees at the SIAL Canada 2014 show held at the Palais des congrès de Montréal from April 2-4, 2014, an international food and beverage tradeshow that attracted over 750 exhibitors from 50 countries and 14,000 professional attendees.

“So-opak set itself far apart and above other packaging firms and attracted excited crowds to our new business model,” says Carol Jiang, president of So-OPak.  “We are the first firm ever to put a folding carton business online for the speed and ease of our customers. After two years of research and concentrated effort, my team was able to unveil a new easy economical folding carton business on the internet.

“For anyone looking for a short-run, unique folding carton, So-OPak can deliver! We posted great success at the Sial Canada show. It provided us with the opportunity to present our unique product to an international audience of food and beverage manufacturers. We really shook up the show and made a lot of positive noise.”

SoOPak serves the carton packaging needs for a wide range of markets. These include the cosmetic, entertainment, food and confectionary, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries. SoOPak also produces high-quality, attention-grabbing promotional and point-of-sale materials. These items include portfolios, leader cards and tags, inserts, warps, boxes, and displays.
