MOLINOS DE PUERTO RICO
Amapola is Puerto Rico’s family flour. For generations our families have been preparing
traditional meals with Amapola Flour, the only flour made in Puerto Rico. It is known for its
quality and freshness, which is improved in its new packaging through the use of a plastic pouch
with a reclosable zipper designed to withstand the humid island environment. One goal of this
package was to reach an increasingly younger generation of customers by mixing the old and
the modern in the same product. The material allows a window to see the product, while the
cathedral-type pouch offers better exposure of the brand on retail shelves.

Stovetop Signature Homestyle Stuffing
brand owner | THE KRAFT HEINZ COMPANY
The Stove Top brand is synonymous with stuffing and has a rich brand history.

The new packaging architecture showcases enlarged photography to increase appetite appeal. A window allows the bread crumbs to be seen, while a health claim icon communicates the brand’s better-for-you platform. To help shoppers, a color coded panel indicates the flavor variety. The large master brand logo has been paired with a new sub-brand of “Signature” to enhance the product offering.

HUGHES DESIGN GROUP
Founded by a cardiovascular physician and a sustainability engineer, Watusee Foods wants to make it easier for people to eat healthy by providing foods that have tasty ingredients packed with protein.

The packaging also uses an aluminum oxide substrate that allows for a longer shelf life.
brand owner | NATURIPE FARMS
The Naturipe brand represents a family of growers who have grown berries for generations, balancing a commitment to sustainability with providing products that meet consumer demands. The goal of this package is to establish a new brand for the company’s snacks and introduce this new offering of mixed berries and nuts. The product literally shines through the window-like structure of the package. The key to this design was to ensure that flavors were distinguished to accommodate the shelf display.
brand owner | MONTEREY MUSHROOMS
Monterey Mushrooms is a leading brand in the fresh mushroom category. These labels were in the produce department during the summer, a key time for promotions that offer a new look for retailers to drive impulse sales with consumers.
