Custom Packaging & Products in Fort Myers celebrating 50 years in business

By Staff | May 14, 2024

Custom Packaging & Products, which produces short-run custom printed food packaging, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The company, started in 1974 by entrepreneur John Van Horn Sr., assists small independent restaurants and groups brand their business with custom-printed food service papers.

Started as a paper converter, the company transitioned into retail packaging, printing gift wrap and tissue paper for retail businesses throughout Georgia. In the mid-1990s, Van Horn was approached by a paper distributor asking if he could print a small quantity of custom-printed deli papers for a few restaurant clients. He saw the demand for small quantity, low-minimum, custom-printed food service papers, developed that side of his business.

In 2004, Van Horn’s son, Ryan, assumed the role of president and CEO of the company. He has been instrumental in expanding the company into new geographical areas and implementing innovative technologies to their business. Now, under the leadership of John, Ryan and Ryan’s wife Natalie, Custom Packaging & Products is celebrating its golden anniversary.
