SHWEN SHWEN, by Maria Bradford, sells delicious African produce online and offers food catering services for weddings, parties, corporate and personal dining.
The company required high-end packaging gift boxes for their online products to ensure safe transportation. As well as protection, it was equally important for Maria that the packaging created an impactful impression from the moment the products arrived with the clients.
In addition to this, following Maria's sustainable ethos, she wanted to use sustainable packaging materials, avoiding plastics to help reduce the company's carbon footprint and generate a positive brand image.
Having searched for a local and sustainable packaging company, Maria came across Switch Packaging. What made Switch so unique was their efforts in taking the time to understand the brief and requirement to create a premium packaging design that aligned with the product requirements and the sustainable ethos.
To help meet the brief, Switch offered their consultancy service from the initial design phase right through the manufacturing to ensure Maria's vision was realised. We helped evolve the original design concept from plain boxes and fittings, through to digital printing at a steady pace, allowing the business to grow and flourish.
Switch recommended corrugated material for the outer packaging of the gift boxes. Corrugated provides a high level of outer protection for transport and e-commerce and offers high-quality digital printing graphics. As you can see from the images, the artwork on the outer packaging was designed to reflect the African culture and products using bold and bright colours.
In addition to the outer boxes, Switch designed and manufactured internal pulp trays to further protect the fragile products, such as wine bottles, to ensure no breakages.
I really appreciated Switch's quick and smooth service, they were very attentive, and I am delighted with the end result. The packaging is exactly how I envisaged it could be. I have already recommended Switch to some of my network!

The final packaging design helped protect the products and create a high-end brand impression with the use of the digital printing graphics.
We were delighted to work with Maria to help bring the Schwen Schwen brand to life. It is always a pleasure to work alongside companies with the same passion for sustainability and well-considered packaging designs.
We look forward to working with Maria on repeat orders and new packaging lines and designs in the future.
