Bixby & Co. Wins Best New Packaging at Candy Show

Bixby & Co. is proud to announce its first place award for best new packaging at the 169th annual Philadelphia National Candy Show, America’s largest trade show dedicated to retail confections. The show, which was held in September, is sponsored by the Retail Confectioners Association of Philadelphia.

Bixby & Co.’s charming, nostalgic packaging design harkens back to the turn of the century before additives and preservatives appeared in food. As owner Kate McAleer shares, “it reflects our commitment to values commensurate with a natural and organic lifestyle and promotion of ethical and environmentally sustainable business practices. We use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper and soy ink in an effort to ensure healthy forests will thrive in the long run. By buying Forest Stewardship Council certified products, we can all do our part to protect the world’s forests.”

“The Bixby Bar™ is an expression of our commitment to pure chocolate, free of genetically modified organisms (GMO’s), preservatives and added sugar. The hallmark of the bar is the exciting, handmade combination of premium organic chocolate, healthy nuts, dried fruits and exotic spices. Our ingredients are natural or organic, loaded with antioxidants, gluten-free, Kosher Certified, Rainforest Alliance Certified ™ (RAC) and YouthTrade™ Certified. Our dark chocolate bars are vegan,” describes McAleer.

The Bixby Bar has received accolades from numerous blogs and magazines, including Cool Hunting and Excursions Magazine and has been featured on Facebook Gifts, and AhaLife.
