Our clients come to us via word of mouth for good reason - we have 24 years of understanding and designing Smarter Packaging.  As a full service packaging company, we begin our custom projects with a careful look at your menu or product offering. We then apply our findings to create a custom packaging solution.

"With the help of CMI, our packaging and distribution costs dropped 18%."
