M&Q Holdings was attracted to Flavorseal’s culture of innovation, creativity, and its knowledgeable, customer-focused workforce. In addition to Flavorseal’s flexible packaging, netting, packaging equipment and consumables products, M&Q is especially excited by Flavorseal’s Seasoning Transfer Technology, which incorporates seasonings and bold flavors into various forms of flexible packaging for its food processing customers.
Michael Schmal, president/CEO of M&Q Holdings, says, “We truly believe that Flavorseal’s Seasoning Transfer Technology will revolutionize the way packaging is utilized in the protein and food industries. Instead of just protecting and extending shelf life of food products, Seasoning Transfer Technology allows the packaging to become an integral part of the product itself, by enhancing the appearance, quality, taste and aroma to food. We think this technology has the potential to dramatically change the food processing industry, and we are fortunate that Chris and Colleen Carroll, who are the owners and founders of Flavorseal, chose M&Q to be their partner to accelerate this transformation.”
M&Q will continue to operate the business as Flavorseal LLC, a Division of M&Q Holdings LLC, retaining its operations in Avon, Ohio. Chris Carroll will remain as President and CEO of Flavorseal. Customer and supplier interactions with Flavorseal will remain unchanged.
By combining Flavorseal with M&Q Holding’s other companies, notably M&Q Packaging LLC, and the Outlook Group LLC, the company plans to become a one-stop shop for food packaging companies by offering Seasoning Transfer Technology, films and flexible packaging, netting products, paperboard products, labels, disposables, packaging equipment and value-added services.
