New cardboard shaker

Date: 23 September 2020

Prince de Bretagne (https://www.princedebretagne.com/) and NNZ started in 2020 a packaging optimization project on the snacking range of shaker references 250 gr of cherry tomatoes (Tutti and Pigeon variety).

This innovative packaging is an evolution of a packaging range initially all in PET. It was designed thanks to a partnership between Prince de Bretagne and NNZ and has led to a drastic reduction in the presence of plastic compared to the original version (-80%). This new shaker presents a cup designed in macro-perforated cardboard and closed by a transparent cover in order to maintain product visibility.

The shaker format is very easy to take anywhere for on-the-go consumption. New labels such as Nutri-Score can be found on the packaging with the maximum "A" grade and clearly visible sorting instructions to guide consumers.

Prince de Bretagne is the brand of Breton market gardeners, passionate and committed on a daily basis, created in 1970, 50 years ago.
Bringing together around 2000 producers in 5 cooperatives, the brand offers 147 fruits and vegetables segmented into 3 production methods: conventional, committed, grown without pesticides and organic. Each year an average of 450,000 tonnes of vegetables are sold in more than 30 different countries. Among the brand's 10 commitments, one concerns limiting the impact of packaging, Prince de Bretagne has for several years started a process of reducing plastic on its packaged products.
