A really interesting approach to printing, designed and printed to be folded into a design, 4 colour printing.

Green Oranges aren't any different from plain orange oranges, but are grown in cooler countries where the climate is cooler such as china, but then are treated with the natural gas ethylene, which is usually given off by bananas. They are treated so they can be sold to the USA but the process costs the farmers and distributers more. So I am also going to sell and package green oranges in aid of the fairtrade farmers which goes with the ethics of my brand.

If i do choose to design bags to package my foods there is still the packaging that displays them that needs to be thought about. Usually fruits and vegetable are packaged in open topped boxes, very plain and bland. However this design by Edminson Martin shows that these boxes can be vibrant and exciting.
The crate itself is printed through a 'flexo folder gluer' which is a flexographic process that both prints, creases and glues the box into its final form.
Most fruit and veg aren't packaged but sold loose. Supermarkets and market stalls alike tend to allow customers to choose their loose fresh foodsby hand and then be packaged into paper or polythene bags, (more traditionally in a paper bag) Possibly a new route for my packaging ideas that I should produce bag to package loose fruit and veg.
whilst on the hunt for the evasive banana packaging (if it truly exists?) i stumbled upon what one packaging website stated as packaging. Chiquita's new rebrand.
"Chiquita's latest ad campaign imbues its audience with an instant sense of wonder. Using playful illustrations on stickers juxtaposed to the iconic Chiquita stickers, the product and brand become more engaging to the consumer—plus they just look cool. We got a chance to ask the Art Director, DJ Neff, some questions about the process of making bananas (even more) fun."
"Pure Bake Shop is a Toledo based bakery that specializes in gluten free products. The bakery uses all natural ingredients including organic beans, soy, and nut flours for their baked goods. I wanted to accentuate the 'purity' of the bakeshop. The mixture of large, but thin typography, and dot patterns along with the soft vellum packaging create a mood that encompasses the pure aspect on which the bakeshop takes pride"
Found these great packages for fresh food by Michael Gump Jr. Given me some ideas on how to package fresh foods instead of dry goods.
