Sainsbury's Medjool Dates

The challenge and the background

Westpak were given the opportunity to work alongside Sainsbury’s in supplying a redesigned box for their ‘Taste the Difference’ line of Medjool Dates. This project is the latest in a series of previous fresh produce packaging designs we have supplied to the renowned supermarket chain.

For Sainsbury’s, the core driving principle behind this latest design was to deliver a branding refresh that felt befitting to this luxurious product line. The design team at Sainsbury’s were able to provide us with a finalised artwork design and were looking for a robust supply chain to ensure this revamped packaging design made it into their networks stores with complete reliability and peace of mind.

Westpak’s solution to the challenge

This project was perfectly positioned for us to utilise our already highly organised and reliable supply chain. By working with our network of expert suppliers and manufacturers we were able to provide the ideal solution with a real focus on efficiency and dependability. We undertook three stages of sampling and refinement in order to ensure each element of the brief was successfully mate. Firstly, a material sampling stage ensured the optimal board material was specified. Secondly, we payed close attention to colour swatch specifications to ensure completely branding compliance. And lastly, we carefully assessed a printed prototype before moving to production.

The result

The finalised design was successfully distributed as a flat-packed item, which is easily assembled by hand. The design is manufactured from cartonboard, a material that boasts a range of environmental friendly attributes including being fully recyclable, and also featured a high-clarity plastic window for consumers to view the produce. The supplied deign also features a securely-fastening tab on the front-facing side of the box, ensuring the lid remains firmly closed once packed packed.
