Since last fall it became clear that Cinnawin's product lineup was due for an upgrade. Today some much needed changes are coming to Cinnawin.
After listening to feedback from retailers, speaking with industry experts, and much research and development I have decided to manufacture Homestyle Cinnamon Spread in glass jars.
Why glass jars?
Glass jars have many advantages over the previously used deli containers. First and foremost they allow for a more streamlined manufacturing process as they are compatible with automated filling machines, they only require two labels instead of four, and don't require a shrink band to be applied. Since switching to glass jars Cinnawin has seen an 82% drop in manufacturing time. This should lead to shorter wait times for retailers, an issue that has been plaguing the business since last September.
Nothing has changed in terms of volume and recipe. I believe this is everything Cinnawin's flagship product should be.
The advantages don't stop there. Glass jars are dishwasher safe, reusable and recyclable making them ideal for anyone wanting to use them for their homemade jams, jellys, pickles, sauces, and more. The possibilities are endless even after the Cinnamon Spread is gone. Don't have any use for them? Take your used Cinnamon Spread jars to your local Sarcan location and have it recycled rather then sit in a landfill.
Not all Sarcan locations accept non-beverage recyclables, for a list of Sarcan locations that do accept non-beverage recyclables click here.
As of April 1st Cinnawin is now a job creator. I have hired two people to help work in the kitchen and the output has already increased exponentially. these individuals both have obtained their Food Safe Level 1 certification and have had years of experience in the kitchen. Their expertise and work ethic can already be seen in Cinnawin's products.
A note on price changes
Because of the new glass jars both the bulk price and the MSRP have been increased. For retailers with pending orders placed before April 19, 2023 the old prices will be honoured. I don't like the idea of charging more for a product without offering any new changes even with high inflation rates in our economy. So here's my pitch to you, yes the prices have increased however you get a reusable/recyclable glass jar, the opportunity to support Saskatchewan jobs, and shorter wait times. For any questions or concerns regarding this or anything else please feel free to email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cinnawin is changing. The goal with these changes is to keep up with the new demand Cinnawin faces all while renewing the commitment I have to the local businesses who helped bring this company to where it is today. I am forever grateful to everyone who supports what I do and look forward to earning your support for years to come.
Thank you for reading and have a great day!
