In 2019, GrowSciences, a renowned brand known for setting the standard of premium quality within the state of Arizona, inquired whether our jars were available for purchase in large volumes.

They were in search of a glass jar similar to what they had but with a lid that could twist on, as the cork-like top they were using was giving them issues.

We were graciously invited to visit the facility to see their operation first hand and we were glad we went!

Learnings

Picture workstations sectioned off to seamlessly flow into the next station.  Everything running on auto-pilot, from the intricate final hand trimming of the flower, down to applying the last regulatory label on the jar.

That’s what we walked into.

With eyes and ears wide open, our attention was drawn towards the packaging, particularly how the jars and lids arrived and the steps involved in preparing their product for sale.

We also identified the importance of recyclability and reusability to GrowSciences, which fit perfectly with our own mission of sustainability.

  • custom jar height specifications
  • custom PMS color matched recyclable lid and gasket
  • custom sturdy (reusable) trays
  • introduction to semi-automated vacuum sealing
  • utilize debris prevention recyclable covers to reduce a step in preparations
  • separate lids from jars upon delivery to reduce another preparation step

Take Away

Since launching the jar, we’ve really enjoyed watching GrowSciences develop while maintaining the quality that they’ve committed to.

We began with flower and pre-rolls, and now are also the proud packaging option for their edibles too.

We cherish our partnership with GrowSciences and look forward to working together!
