SAN DIEGO, Nov. 15, 2017 Two years ago, company founders Kary Radestock and Julia Gosnell attended the popular conference with an idea that they wanted to start a high-end packaging company with a focus on the cannabis industry. They walked the aisles, talked to everyone they could, and came away with a feeling that there was an untapped market for premium packaging. Armed with their combined 40 years' experience in the business, the two set out to form a company.
Fast forward two years and the company is flourishing. Not only is Hippo Premium Packaging exhibiting at the conference for the first time, but CEO Radenstock was just awarded Cannabis Industry Woman of the Year by CannaNews.
Hippo now offers a complete suite of services, including brand development, marketing services, public relations, design, and custom packaging. The team is expert in compliance, with specific expertise in the new rules that will govern the California market starting in January.
"It's been quite a journey to get here. We couldn't have imagined that we would grow so quickly," Radestock said. "We are humbled and honored to have worked with some incredible clients, and to have been acknowledged with an amazing award that validates all of our hard work."
Hippo now has reps in key markets throughout the nation, and is focused on providing hands-on service to growers, producer/processors, and ancillary companies in the cannabis industry.
"We are fortunate to have recruited one of the most experienced teams in the industry," said Julia Gosnell, COO. "Our marketing and design team has worked for years with major corporations and Fortune 500 clients, and now brings that expertise to the cannabis industry," she added. "I believe that we have grown so quickly because our work is exemplary, and we are diligent about providing the best customer service possible."
Hippo will be displaying some of their work at the Marijuana Business Conference, November 15-17, Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth 4604.
The Hippo team will be readily recognizable by their "Team Hippo" football shirts and nerf footballs they are giving away. Stop by the booth to see new packaging ideas, and get a free football.
