14th October

Art is an Option was approached by Heathfield Foods to design a range of packaging for frozen pork ribs. These were intended for export to a range of European countries and for sale in the UK.  Good design was essential; however project management also played a key part of delivering this product to market.

We worked with our client and their major customers to create a new “Real Ribs” which is used as an overarching brand. Within this brand each variation of the Frozen Food Packaging had to be tailored to the specific flavour and weight of each product. To help achieve the high impact we wanted Art is an Option commissioned and art directed one of Scotland’s leading food photographers and a food stylist. We also managed the translation from English into German, Spanish, French, Danish, Italian and Greek.

Protex-H Packaging

One of our clients, Braden Limited developed a new product called Protex-H which they wanted to bring to market. The product uses Heat Shock Technology (HST) which helps the body to deal with the stress incurred during and after international travel and after many sporting activities.

An intrinsic part of the overall brand is the Packaging which is displayed on all marketing, advertising, leaflets and on the website. The Protex-H packaging therefore reflects the brand values with the look and energy from the logotype.

Although the product is fully organic we made a decision to manufacture to a very high specification using best features of Pharmaceutical Packaging. The boxes have tramper proof ends and all necessary information on the boxes; we feel this care reflects the special qualities of Protex-H.
