Hippo Premium Packaging and KacePack have entered a partnership to deliver packaging solutions to the North American cannabis market.

The collaboration also makes Hippo the first distributor of KacePack in the US.

Hippo co-founder and COO Julia Gosnell said: “We are happy to be named the first distributor of KacePack in the US.

“This step will strengthen our supply chain so that we can continue to provide our clients with beautiful packaging solutions during these especially challenging times.”

The partnership will leverage KacePack’s development team in Asia and Hippo’s presence to supply cannabis packaging solutions.

KacePack Sales vice-president JP Papaioannou said: “Hippo’s management team impresses us with their professionalism, ability to generate consumer interest, and deepen customer loyalties.

“We are excited to work together and produce packaging solutions that will delight our customers.”

Headquartered in Asia, KacePack offers packaging solutions to the cannabis, wine and spirits industries. The company has been serving the cannabis industry for more than three years.

Hippo Premium Packaging specialises in delivering custom packaging solutions to the legal cannabis industry.

In July last year, the company entered a partnership to support the rebranding of multi-speciality medical centre Shanti Wellness.

The deal involved updating Shanti Wellness flagship line of hemp-derived CBD infused balms, supplements and tinctures with new labels and a logo.

It also joined forces with US-based manufacturing company Boveda last year to develop a packaging system for ABV Cannabis.
