Chilau Foods Moves To Use EEASY Lid For Stew Base Line

Chilau Foods will now use CCT's EEASY Lid

Chilau Foods, a line of southern-inspired stew bases and spices, has begun to implement Consumer Convenience Technologies’ EEASY lid for all of its products.

Chilau’s products are available in about 350 stores across the U.S., including Winn-Dixie, Market Street, Albertsons, United Supermarkets, Harveys Supermarkets and Plum Market. The EEASY lid will be available on all Chilau products in these stores by the end of Q1 2024.

“While our stew bases were created to make cooking simple and delicious, opening our jars should be just as easy,” said Michael Anderson, founder of Chilau Foods.

“We’ve always been a company that makes cooking easy for consumers. As we expand, the EEASY Lid allows us to provide our customers with an unbeatable cooking experience, starting with accessible packaging.”

IPAC Inc. of Winter Springs Florida – the co-packer for Chilau Foods – recently converted its manufacturing line to accommodate the EEASY Lid.

“With this partnership, Chilau Foods is making accessible packaging the norm rather than the exception,” said Brandon Bach, president of Consumer Convenience Technologies.

“In developing the EEASY Lid, we solved the age-old problem of opening stubborn jar lids, which has plagued consumers ever since the jar lid was invented. It’s great to see more brands adopt the EEASY Lid and help address consumer needs.”

Consumer Convenience Technologies produces the EEASY Lid at its 16,000-square-foot technology center at the company’s headquarters in Dayton, Ohio. Consumer Convenience Technologies has the capability to produce about 800 aluminum lug EEASY Lids per minute, more than 250 million annually.

About Consumer Convenience Technologies

Consumer Convenience Technologies’ EEASY lid is the first major jar lid innovation in more than 75 years and an honoree of Fast Company’s “Innovation by Design” awards. The EEASY lid opens up the market to 49 percent of people who do not have the physical ability or who struggle to open a vacuum-sealed jar.

CCT is partnered with Germany-based Trade Consult – a sales and marketing firm focusing on the grocery industry and food manufacturers – to coordinate overall execution of the EEASY lid into the European marketplace. The EEASY lid is manufactured at the company’s 16,000-square-foot technology center at its headquarters in Dayton, Ohio.

The EEASY lid is being used on products in more than 250 Wegmans, Stop & Shop, Price Chopper and Tops Friendly Markets stores, as well as select EDEKA Kempken stores in Krefeld, Germany.
