Summer Intern

Calyx Containers

The first truly airtight, resealable, child-resistant packaging line and inventory management system.

Calyx Containers exists to solve some of the largest problems facing the budding cannabis industry: packaging and inventory management.  Rooted in the cannabis industry, our passion is transforming how people transport, brand, and consume the products they love.   We’ve developed a suite of packaging products for flower, concentrates, joints, in addition to a modular tray system designed to standardize the transportation and reconciliation process. We’ve made it easier for industries requiring child-resistant packaging to be compliant in a unique and modern way.
At Calyx, we hold sustainability as a core value in all decision making processes. This is the foundation for our mission: to design, manufacture, and sell >1 billion non-fossil fuel based products. Working towards a closed loop system for 100% product reprocessing, with many products and patents pending, we’re delivering on our promise to improve the way that businesses are run in the legal cannabis industry, and beyond.
