In late 2020, Troscriptions approached KacePack to help them create custom packaging - custom-made blister with carefully sized cavity trays - that would minimize potential leakage during transportation, improve the customer experience while lowering plastic consumption and costs, thus increasing the company’s profitability.
In early 2021, a customized blister that perfectly fit the troches was launched. The blister is contained inside a sturdy and detailed paper box, significantly reducing the company’s plastic usage.
“The custom blister has improved our transportation experience and leakage issue. Our packaging costs have declined and the sturdy box is much easier to open, providing a better customer experience.”

By switching to KacePack, Troscriptions was able to save 40% in its packaging costs (after accounting for international shipping, i.e. from China to California, and tariffs). In return, the company’s overall margins increased by 3%, which has allowed the company to accelerate spending on growth in other areas.
