Packaging manufacturer Qualvis has produced a range of fully compostable and recyclable packaging for vegan chocolate maker Conscious Chocolate.
UK-based Conscious Chocolate required new branding across its portfolio, which includes a range of organic bars with flavours such as orange and tangerine, and goji and coconut.
Qualvis said that following a surge in demand for vegan chocolate, together with increased consumer pressure for compostable, fully recyclable, plant-based packaging, now is “a crucial time for Conscious to draw in a wider customer base with a brand update”.
Richard Pacey, sales director at Qualvis, said: “We advised printing on the textured surface outermost to give a tactile effect, but with a double coating of a gloss water-based varnish it still had the textured effect but ensured the pack had a real lift on the range of vibrant colours.
“We printed both the front and reverse of the packaging with Corona vegetable-based inks. These inks are full biodegradable and in line with the sustainable brief we were given.”
He added: “The structural design features an innovative glued re-closure system, with a user-friendly tear perforation, allowing consumers to easily reseal the pack.”
Emma Jackman, founder and director of Conscious Chocolate, said: “Qualvis made our dreams a reality. We developed a very close working relationship with them, which gave us confidence and trust in what they were able to achieve.
“It took over a year to make this all happen, from designing the packs, through to choosing the material and finish. It is no easy feat to produce fully compostable and recyclable packaging, which still looks great and holds its integrity. The team went that extra mile to fulfil the brief. We were hugely impressed with their professionalism and dedication.
“We love the finished product, it has exceeded all expectations. It perfectly reflects the brand we have worked so hard to produce.”
