We have finished production!! The Food Huggers now need to make their way from the factory to the distribution center and then we'll need 10-14 days to organize, pack up, and ship out the orders. We're getting close now!
Here is your first peek at the production units in their Kickstarter packaging. We looked at a lot of different options for packaging. We're pretty sure that many of you signed up for Food Huggers because you want to avoid waste as much as possible. With that in mind, our first packaging decision was to say "No" to the unnecessary creation of 17,000 little plastic bags. As we looked into paper packaging options we also knew that there was something not quite right about killing a tree to save a tomato, so we made sure that all of our paper packaging was from 100% recycled paper. Here you can see a picture of the Avocado Huggers and Food Huggers in their special Kickstarter packages.
In other news, we sent one of the production approval samples to a writer for The Guardian in the UK. The article was about different products that promise to help save food and save money. We are delighted to report that Food Huggers were given a big thumbs up for their effectiveness! (woo-hoo!) If you want to read the article, you can check it out here.
We can't wait to be shipping out the orders! So close now….Thank you for all of your support and encouragement.
