Designer Levan Lomidze's comment:
The main purpose of food packaging is to present the product in a tasty, appetizing and attractive way. The packaging for canned sardines is designed in accordance with the trends of recent years, emphasizing the consumer's ability to appreciate minimalism and laconicism. As a result, the shapes of the packaging become simpler, but the colors are more accentuated. The design becomes clearer, sharper and easier for the consumer to read. The packaging reveals important values for the producer and the consumer, and at the same time serves as an effective tool for brand and business development.

Alyking cardboard (235 g/m2), VAN SON sheet feed offset inks, food-safe TERRAWET water-based varnish are used in the production of the packaging. Printing specification: offset printing; 4 colors for external printing + 4 for internal printing; resolution: 175 lpi/dpi; point size %: 3.

The national competition for the best packaging has been held in Latvia since 1996. Read more about the competition at
