Description:

Packaging studies all over the world have shown that consumers want packages that are easy to open and easy to reclose. A package that is easy to reclose protects the product's freshness until completely consumed. Also a package that has a clearly marked consume-by-date, offers extra protection to the consumer about the product's freshness.

Kwik Lok Corporation has been manufacturing for over half a century the popular and patented KWIK LOK all-plastic bag closure that offers the consumer a truly convenient package which is easy to open and equally easy to reclose.
