International packaging :

We were briefed to produce a substantial range of packaging for this client that tied perfectly to the brand position and story, across multiple meats and styles but all beautifully packaged to work as a family of SKU's. Presenting the meats in a pack format that is both familiar to the consumer yet with an air of serious quality and knowledge.

Firstlight foods are an artisan New Zealand supplier of meats including the legendary Wagu Beef. The clients passion about the brand. You can tell the approach from the clients own story


Back in 2003, when we were thinking about this revolutionary new meat company which was going to take the world by storm, we referred to it as Pipeline. None of us had been to Hawaii, we called it Pipeline because our idea was to connect the people who make the product with the people who eat it, transparently and directly. You told us you wanted interesting, tasty, juicy steaks from animals grown by people you could pick up the phone to if you had the urge. So, off we went and here we are."




We love to talk food and food packaging so feel free to get in touch, or take a look at our food clients these are all companies that are just like you from the very biggest to the very smallest each one of them started out somewhere ( ones were working on now are JUST starting out on that small batch product).
