Jind Fruit Co. is a 3rd-generation independent fruit grower in Osoyoos, BC looking to continue it’s rebranding effort with a full-range of complimentary product packaging.

A vintage look and feel for the Jind Fruit brand had already been established through earlier work. This new packaging continued to refine those summer themes; summer nights, summer love, and summer flings. This vintage feel would be a little softer, more romantic — confident, but not trying to hard.

This buyer’s guide for Jind Fruit Co. tightly incorporates their sub-brand visual elements, really cementing the company’s ‘What Summer Tastes Like‘ tagline to the look and feel of all their promotional materials from the website through to the packaging and print collateral. In a very short time, Jind Fruit Co. has become the largest independent fruit grower in BC’s interior, including its Summer Nights™ Cherries, Summer Love™ Peaches, Summer Fling™ Select Fruit (nectarines, apricots, Italian prune plums and grapes) and Summer Breeze™ Apples.

This spread features all the fruit that comprise the Summer Fling™ Select Fruit; Apricots, Grapes and Italian Prune Plums.

The 16-page buyer’s guide is sent to produce purchasers Canada-wide and beyond. It contains all the vital information a buyer will need when making their purchasing decision, such as produce quality descriptions, availability range, shipping configuration (bulk/clamshell), box dimensions, weight, pallet configuration and sizing.

A custom-made bamboo binder was designed to stand out on the produce purchaser’s shelf, allowing the purchaser to update their resource binder as updated guides come in.
