Readi Pak from Sanofi (GiveAway)

Scott Benner


Did you know that Sanofi recently launched a multi-purpose bag venture? I didn't either. The entire thing seemed a bit odd to me at first, so I reached out to them with a few questions. 


Was Readi Pak a company that Sanofi took over/rebranded?

Sanofi US designed Readi Pak after recognizing a need for a convenient and discreet way for people living with diabetes to carry around their diabetes supplies.

What made Sanofi get into this business? What is the goal?

Sanofi strives to help people manage the complex challenges of diabetes by going beyond the molecule to develop and deliver best-in-class innovative, integrated and personalized solutions that address real needs people have in managing their diabetes every day. We designed the Readi Pak after recognizing a need for a convenient and discreet way for people living with diabetes to carry around diabetes supplies. To make this a relevant solution, we wanted input on the design and usability of the bags from those newly diagnosed with diabetes and shared our early prototypes with a small local student group (many of whom have type 1) for their feedback and opinions. We are pleased to offer new products such as the Readi Pak in order to help people manage their diabetes every day.


Are there plans to expand with other products?

At this time, this is a pilot program and we do not have any plans to expand or other products under development.  However, our vision is to serve as a valued partner to the diabetes community by listening and engaging in a dialogue directly with people living with diabetes, and these conversations help us identify new opportunities to provide diabetes solutions that are truly relevant.


Now it makes sense to me why the company that makes Arden's insulin got involved in the D-accessory business. I've seen and used a Readi Pak and it's a solid product, appears very well made and was designed with diabetes in mind. It comes with a removable kit for your more often touched supplies and has plenty of room for all of the rest. It even has a reusable ice pack. 

Enough of all that, let's get to the fun part.

I have three Readi Paks, one Camouflage, one Blue and one Pink Swirl (that I used to evaluate the bag (it's clean/new don't worry) to give away. I don't have many giveaways so please don't expect an elaborate system to be put in place to choose the winners. What you can expect is this... I'll be putting names in a hat and then asking Arden to draw them out. I assume no liability and offer no warrantee for the bags. If that sounds good to you... read on.

Anyone living in the U.S. (and that's only because I'm paying shipping) that is interested in winning a Readi Pak should comment below "Please Enter Me". Be sure to leave your email address in the provided place so I can contact you for a mailing address if you win. The drawing will be, let's say, Saturday, December, 22, 2012. Entries arriving before 9 AM on that day will be included in the drawing. Please include your color choice in the comment and I'll do my best to get it to you. There is only one rule, please just one entry per physical mailing address.

I was not compensated by Sanofi/Readi Pak for this post. I'm even giving away the bag that was offered to Arden.
