All-Natural Granola Maker Leverages Re-Closable Benefits of PRESS-LOK® Technology
MANCHESTER, NH – March 27, 2014 – Velcro Companies, with its commitment to creating smart products, services and technologies wherever things can be connected, announced today that Gypsy Crunch® has integrated VELCRO® Brand PRESS-LOK® closures into its granola packaging. Based in Portland, Ore., Gypsy Crunch® makes all-natural, hand-crafted granola in a variety of flavors and combinations.
Gypsy Crunch® selected the PRESS-LOK® closure system for its flexibility and consumer-friendly re-closure attributes. Since granola is a product that may be consumed over a period of time, and not just in one sitting, the PRESS-LOK® closure is an ideal solution. The system also offers consumers the flexibility to take Gypsy Crunch® products on the go or simply enjoy them at home. The new packages are produced by Peel Plastic Products Ltd., a recognized leader in process and product innovation.
“Whether you’re on a hike, on a flight or just in your kitchen, we want to offer our customer the flexibility of enjoying the all-natural goodness of Gypsy Crunch® granolas with the confidence that they can re-seal and open our product several times and without any hassle of mess,” said Randi Nash, founder and owner of Gypsy Crunch® granolas.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Randi and Gypsy Crunch® to integrate the PRESS-LOK® closure into her artisan granola line,” said Chris Lerra, Senior Business Development Manager of Packaging, Velcro Companies. “The VELCRO® Brand is dedicated to helping unique companies like Gypsy Crunch® build AMAZING CONNECTIONS™ with their customers through distinctive packaging solutions.”
The PRESS-LOK® closure is a proprietary hook-to-hook technology. The closure is a unique solution in the industry because it offers easy alignment that allows consumers to fasten without precise line-up, securing the package with great burst strength.
Gypsy Crunch® granola is available online at www.gypsycrunch.com and at select retail locations in the US and Canada.

At Velcro Companies, we are proud that VELCRO® brand products have become a part of everyday life, but that ubiquity sometimes produces confusion. The VELCRO® trademark should be used only when referring to genuine VELCRO® brand fasteners. Non-VELCRO® brand products should be identified by their functional terms, such as “hook and loop,” “self-adhesive straps,” and so forth. The VELCRO® mark should always be used as an adjective and never as a noun or a verb. The term “Velcro Companies” should be used when referring to our company and its executives.
The proper use of the VELCRO® trademark assists us in safeguarding the integrity of the VELCRO® brand, and helps to protect consumers from products incorrectly sold as VELCRO® brand products.
