OBJECTIVE: A retail food product needed maximum product visibility for merchandising. Product was in two different sizes and would be merchandised on different shelf dimensions.
SOLUTION: Tray was designed to merchandise two different sized packages. The design allowed for the product to be organized and held upright to maximize visibility and shelf space. Light gauge, shallow draw thermoforming design also included die-cut perforations so it could be changed to fit different shelf dimensions. In addition, an embossed logo was included in the thermoformed front facings so that additional product labeling was unnecessary which saved on labor and label cost. In addition to improved merchandising visibility, the design was engineered to allowed for more product to be displayed which would help ensure that sales were not missed.
