The founders and ideologists of the project are enthusiasts of healthy nutrition. Using “green” technologies developed by them, the GreenWise brand creates jerky, strips and much more from environmentally friendly textured plant protein with fiber structure. These products have the texture and taste of meat, so they can easily replace it in the diet of people who for one reason or another decided to say no to animal protein. Now the company produces jerky (dried “meat”) and strips (sold in dry form, after soaking they acquire the fiber structure of meat, so you can cook a full second course). The plan is to expand the range and to produce ham, ready-to-eat meals and more. The company extends beyond Russia – according to American Forbes, it is one of the most promising food startups in the world.
GreenWise is a garden where we grow our green products. They grow under the close supervision of technologists and nutritionists and become a real work of plant art – they are perfect not only on the outside but also have great taste and health benefits.
The original packaging was made using the classic codes of meat snacks. However, it scared the consumers, and also the Russian market has some special features. We’ve said no to any graphic elements that refer to meat snacks. It was necessary to emphasize the innovation and originality of the product. We were inspired by the idea of plant-based products and have created modern, bright and easy communication. Through all the points of contact with the brand – from packaging to website, from merchandise to logistics packaging – the design is inspired by the forces of nature and by garden figures that create an easy and recognizable character of the brand. We’ve focused on emotional, bright and clear packaging. The food zone clearly shows the product while all the important functional information – benefits, recipes and composition – is on the back of the package.
Over the past six months, the company has entered federal retail networks, a huge interest from consumers helps Greenwise come up with new products that will soon please the market, and the founders are already speaking around the world at conferences for high-tech food startups.
