Georgette Packaging was founded in 2013 by a former bakery owner/mechanical engineer/sustainability consultant looking to address the challenges associated with marketing and packaging products in the bakery space. Driven to help businesses navigate and ease the challenge of sourcing packaging, Georgette has capitalized on its diverse industry experience to build an incredibly knowledgeable and caring team that knows the packaging world inside and out. As the packaging industry continues to grow, so does Georgette as demonstrated by our inclusion in the 2020 and 2021 Globe & Mail’s Top 500 Growing Businesses list.
In 2021, Georgette’s ownership was handed over to two of its existing employees, Kris Lewis and Jennifer Appleby Vines. Both bring a magnitude of relevant experience to our management team. Prior to joining Georgette, Kris owned a printing business and has a vast understanding of digital design and the technical side of printing. Jen, on the other hand, has decades of experience at the top level of the food industry and has previously owned and operated her own food based business, making a delicious and revered edible cookie dough.
In addition to the backgrounds of Jen and Kris, the Georgette team is made up of people bursting with the entrepreneurial spirit. From soap makers and cookie dough connoisseurs, to puzzle makers and hair stylists, the team at Georgette understands, loves and appreciates the entrepreneurial journey. These backgrounds, paired with Georgette’s history, allow the team to connect, consult and work alongside all of our clients in the most like-minded manner.
…is always on our clients! We work with some absolutely incredible brands including The Salty Donut, Krispy Rice, Donut Monster, Blackbird Baking and Onyx Coffee…and we would love to add you to that list!
The majority of global packaging is made for the food and beverage industry, which is why you’ll see a lot of focus on this industry across our pages, however it’s not all we do. We also work with health, beauty and wellness, e-commerce, and home goods companies, just to name a few. Our packaging intel doesn’t stop at the coffee shop door.
A common theme among the incredible companies we work with is ambition. These successful businesses are headed by individuals who understand the power of marketing, strive to create an unforgettable experience for customers, and recognize the value of clever and stunning design.
We have built an extensive network of production partners across North America and we select where to manufacture based on our customer’s specific needs. We are proudly Canadian and strongly believe in supporting our local manufacturing sector and do so whenever we can. Yet, we carefully choose manufacturing partners that are highly skilled in the art of printing and are proud to have long-standing relationships with some of the best in the business. Whether it is cost, timeline or quality that is at the top of our client’s list, we have partners that can elevate to the requirements of their specific projects. With a large tooling library available, we can quickly produce traditional solutions. Yet, with our passion for design and ingenuity, we also excel at customizing from the ground up.
