Easy Open Packaging

I always find your packaging somewhat difficult to open. Particularly for things like burger patties. Have you thought about easy open packaging?

Hey @hmflynn810! I can definitely understand where you are coming from on the packaging. We vacuum seal our share items before freezing as we’ve found this the best way to maintain nutrition, taste and shelf life in your fridge. Generally I take scissors and cut all the way around the vacuum seal to get everything out (a little trickier on the patties).

Changing up the packaging to something a bit more “easy open” would require testing and likely a few new machines in our Vermont processing facility. Appreciate the feedback, and I’ll make sure to mention this at our next warehouse meeting!

The burger patties really are one of the worst things to open from Walden. But after doing it a handful of times you just expect it by now and plan ahead.

The blueberry sausages take the cake though when it comes to trying to open and then pry them apart.

Every other delivery has a package that didn’t seal very well. Sometimes it’s noticeable and you just defrost and cook immediately and hope for the best and other times you only realize it after it’s fully defrosted.
Going to an easy open package might make those instances higher.

A tip on the blueberry sausages: if you’re cooking them all at once if you stick them in the hot skillet while still frozen, the heat will melt them quickly and make it super easy to pry them apart from each other (and the paper)!
