Ocean Mist Farms, a grower and marketer of fresh artichokes, has three new artichoke packaging options in its Ocean Mist Organic line, due in stores in time for the November and December holidays.
Ocean Mist’s organic artichokes will now be offered in a two-count handle bag, three-count clamshell and two-count ReadyCycle packaging. The organic artichoke packs will include a size 24 or 30 artichoke, depending on pack style. These mid-sized artichokes are ideal to prepare as a side dish at home during the holidays.
“We are pleased to now offer a variety of organic artichoke options for purchase,” Ocean Mist Farms Senior Director of Marketing Diana McClean said. “The new merchandise-ready artichokes are convenient for our retail partners and packed in quantities that shoppers have shared with us that they want to buy. Plus, the packaging material used is both recyclable and made with recycled material.”
Ocean Mist’s clamshell packaging uses 90% recycled material, while the two-count handle bag is made with high density polyethylene, the most commonly recycled plastic. The new ReadyCycle corrugated clamshell is fully recyclable and uses vegetable-based inks.
Shoppers will be able to easily find these newly packaged organic artichokes in the stores by using Ocean Mist Farms’ new Destini locator tool found on www.oceanmist.com. Each pack includes a simple preparation recipe and an easily scanned QR code linking to a “how-to” video on Ocean Mist’s website.
