Packaging Spotlight: Hellmann’s Commits to Using Recycled Plastic Packaging in Over 200 Million Bottles and Jars by 2020

 

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Hellmann's announced that by 2020, all of its Mayonnaise and Mayonnaise Dressing plastic containers sold in U.S. retail stores will be made from recycled plastic materials. This initiative is part of Hellmann's ongoing commitment to advance sustainable packaging.

The recycled plastic packaging is rolling out now, beginning with Hellmann's Mayonnaise and Mayonnaise Dressing squeeze bottles and followed by Hellmann's jars by the end of 2019. Over 200 million Hellmann's bottles and jars will be impacted, and the new containers will feature the How2Recycle® label and artwork that highlights the brand's commitment to using recycled plastic.

"Switching to recycled plastic has a positive impact on the environment by reducing the amount of bottles sent to landfills and lowering greenhouse gas emissions," said Benjamin Crook, Senior Director, Dressings & Condiments, Unilever. "At Hellmann's we strive for sustainability in all that we do, including helping customers make a responsible choice while still enjoying the products they love."

This is the first step for Hellmann's to move its portfolio of products toward fully recyclable bottles and jars that are made from 100 percent recycled materials. The brand's commitment to using recycled plastic packaging that is also recyclable is one way the brand is delivering on the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan, the company's blueprint for sustainable growth. Specifically, Hellmann's efforts will support the company's goal of ensuring 100 percent of plastic packaging will be designed to be fully reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025. The company is also developing reusable packaging innovations in an effort to reduce single-use plastics as part of TerraCycle's Loop platform.

Brief

IS IT A BIRD? THIS IS A PLANE?
NO, IT'S FLIEGER!

Oatmeal porridge is good for you and can be tasty if properly cooked.
But... very few people like it, especially kids, so parents have to come up with all sorts of tricks for their little ones
to eat porridge. For example, they make it like a game: "Uh-uh, it’s an airplane flying — open your mouth to catch it"

It was this simple game-like mechanics that became an idea for branding and packaging development for a series
of high-quality oatmeal cereals with blueberries, strawberries and apples. We took the easily memorized German colloquial
word ‘Flieger’, which means "airplane", and developed an easily-read color code system for the packaging.

Juicy bright colors and large shapes allow the product to stand out on the shelf among the average competitors,
who prefer to show the blooming fields and use the theme of closeness to nature.

 

 

 

No, Flieger porridges are all natural and good. We just did not want our porridge
to be the same as everything.

Packaging Spotlight: Gastropolis Food Market

 

 

Designed by

formascope design
Armenia

 

Brief

We set a challenge to create a brand identity using simple shapes and content, so the brand style of Gastropolis has been built in combination of two forms and three elements (one circle, two lines). The logo "a circle and two lines" with the same "plate- cutlery" became the origin of the brand-style language. The logo constantly transforms by dynamic principle and creates radically different culinary corners using the same shapes, that in fact become the part of the corporate style of Gastropolis.

 

challenge

Gastropolis is a modern gourmet food market offering different culinary corners in one location. Our challenge was to develop brand concept and visual identity for such a diversified place.

idea/solution

The branding of Gastropolis is based on the idea of “form as a language of communication”. It’s a simple concept based on human relationship with food. This relationship begins with a "plate-cutlery" motion, which is also viewed as a formal embodiment of Gastropolis corporate style.

Packaging Spotlight: All Nuts

 

 

Designed by

Sweety & Co.
Porto Alegre, Brazil

 

Brief

Contemporary, All Nuts talks to people in the present days. They are rethinking their food, but with the rush life they have, there’s no time to make their own food. That’s where All Nuts comes in, with the practicality and certainty that by adding a nut a day to their food, people will be taking care of their own health and living better.

The Challenge
All Nuts has a varied product line with several packaging proposals. The idea was to bring to the daily life of people who wants to take care of themselves, a modern packaging, that delights them and also has a unique strong identity from the three pillars of the brand: Healthy, Natural and Brazilian.

The Solution
For the brand identity and packaging, we bet on a monogram that becomes a pattern (mesh with several applications) and we also used the overlap of the stickers to differentiate the product. Simple and easy solution with low coast. The result is a family with movement, due to the diverse proportions of pattern and bright attractive color

Thinking about creating a badge that intersects the word NUT and the letter A (from All Nuts), we created a monogram that doubles as the reduced form for the brand. O result is a strong and independent element that reinforces the brand as necessary.

Packaging Spotlight: Fifty50 Foods Unveils New Packaging for its Certified Low-Glycemic Products

 

Specialty food brand continues to serve consumers' growing appetite for Low-Glycemic Foods while funding Diabetes research

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Fifty50 Foods, the company that designed specialty foods for people living with diabetes, revealed new packaging prominently featuring its brand slogan "Eat Well, Feel Good" to underscore the company's commitment to helping consumers benefit from a Low-Glycemic diet. The company also announced that it will continue its 26-year legacy of donating half of its profits to diabetes research, which so far totals more than $14 million.

"Based on shopper and retailer insights, we felt it was the right time to showcase how our great-tasting products meet the personal wellbeing objectives not only for people with diabetes but also those who want to live a Low-Glycemic lifestyle," said Julie Frost, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Fifty50 Foods.

Fifty50 Foods has the industry's most extensive variety of certified Low-Glycemic foods ranging from peanut butters and fruit spreads to candies and cookies to breakfast items like syrup and oatmeal to baking items like pie crust and crystalline fructose. The brand's food items contain carbs that rank lower on the Glycemic Index (GI) so they are digested slower and won't cause dramatic blood sugar fluctuations, helping to keep energy levels steadier.

Low-Glycemic foods are not only for people with diabetes. Studies {1} have shown that a Low-GI diet offers health advantages like diminishing the risk for Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and age-related eye illnesses.

Tradition of giving continues
"In 1991, when we first committed to donating half of our profits to help prevent, treat and cure diabetes, it was not as common as it is today to find companies that make significant financial contributions to charities and social causes," said Frost. "We are proud of the fact that we were an early trailblazer in this area."

The company has given more than $8 million to date to (JDRF), the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.  "Fifty50 Foods is helping us realize our goal of living in a world without T1D," said Melissa Newman, Ph.D., Executive Director, Southwest Ohio Chapter, JDRF. "Every dollar we put towards research comes from donations and we are grateful for their support so we can continue to advance our mission and find a cure."

Fifty50 Foods' products are available for purchase at Fifty50Foods.com, on popular online shopping sites like Amazon, iHerb and MyBrands and at local grocers across the U.S.
