ZipVac Portable Food Storage System

6/13/08

ZipVac partners with outdoor-recreation icon Babe Winkelman and "wild game" cook Kris Winkelman to promote an innovative portable food storage system.

Barrington, Illinois The ZipVac Portable Food Storage System is a new, unique vacuum-packing product for edibles or other items that need protection. It utilizes reusable, freezable, boilable ZipVac bags and a portable, rechargeable electric vacuum pump that fits the patent-pending valve system built into the ZipVac bags. A compact manual hand pump is also included.

"The ZipVac system is so simple. Other vacuum-packing products use big machines, open-ended bags and heat welding. With ZipVac you just load and zip the bag, then suck the air out with the pump," said Babe Winkelman who enthusiastically endorses the product.

"We are very pleased that Babe and Kris Winkelman have agreed to endorse and promote our ZipVac product," said John Schwan, Chairman of CTI, parent company of the ZipVac brand. "They are icons in the outdoor marketplace and, we believe, will be an important factor in raising consumer awareness and interest in the brand."

Cooking segment host Kris Winkelman who also airs on the Outdoor Secrets show with husband Babe Winkelman, says "The advantages of ZipVac for food preservation and preparation are obvious. You can re-use the bags, use them for soups and stews, use them to marinate meats, and even take the portable system to the most remote camp. Try doing that with a plug-in vacuum packer with one-time-use bags."

The ZipVac brand is owned by CTI Industries in Barrington, IL. It is distributed through Sportco Marketing in Ohio.
