Less Wasteful Packaging for Christmas Hampers

At Hunter Valley Hampers, owners Kacy Fletcher is crystal clear where her motivation for green-conscious packaging comes from - recycling! Shortly after specializing the gift baskets and the premium hamper industry as a ground breaking entrepreneur since 2007, Ms Fletcher understands her work when it concerns sending a Xmas hamper.

And the overall state of the market when it comes to packaging and recycling where possible is rather shocking. Within a gourmet hampers Australia first, Kacy discusses how the impression of size and bulk actually works against your market value for money proposition. And exactly how some actually straightforward insider tips and tricks can guarantee you get the best pamper hamper or edible arrangements for your money this Christmas.

Too frequently gift hampers are designed to appear as large as achievable basically for appearances - with air filled packages and inner compartments filling the vast bulk of the hamper. This leads to a favorable impression on delivery, when the recipient is surprised with what may appear to be a considerable carton sitting on their doorstep.

But as the hamper carton is opened and the inner packaging and void filler is removed away, it soon becomes clear that there is just handful of items of gourmet or Christmas value within. Unfortunately, this tactic simply works because rushed and time poor business buyers simply go for the lowest cost and the biggest looking hamper arrangement. Kacy discusses exactly the reason why that will not get the job done and more in this enlightening interview.

In her time with the picnic gift basket and fruit bouquet business Kacy has seen a few of the worst instances of deceiving clients with huge boxes, loadeded with goods like crackers and crisps that are primarily air filled, then saturated in a sea cellulose peanuts. This means when you strip away all of the inner and outer packaging, you end up with a six items on your kitchen bench top and half a rubbish full of product packaging. Deciding to send a basket should not mean that you are making the choice of more packing material over the right gift hamper.

Thank you gifts and Christmas Hampers for corporate clients are especially susceptible to the in excess of wrapping complication, as the only people who really see within the hamper are the recipient - typically at a festive, especially forgiving time of year. The disappointment and head scratching of the recipient is lost in the middle of the noise and pleasure of the Christmas Season.

Fresh Fruit Hampers for Christmas Gifts

In a recent short article in the South China Morning Post, world famous gift hamper specialists agreed that inefficient internal packing material of hampers is the main issue. Kacy Fletcher observed this directly herself at Australia's home of independently owned handcrafted gourmet hampers - Hunter Valley when she had an unwanted of boxes in a larger size. It was much more cost efficient in advance to use the large packages and just go back to even more interior packaging than to go and source all new closer fitting containers.

Using a bigger than required size package means that freight costs are higher, yet with quantity carrier rebates, it can still be far better to use the bigger box, pay partially greater freight and run out the larger cartons quickly. By doing this the hamper company avoids needing to re purchase the smaller box dimension which can be a considerable impost for sending a fruit basket. So keeping this in thoughts it just simply functions to use more inner filler and leave the receiver to have to cope with the excess product packaging when the shipment shows up.

"At Hunter Valley Hampers we understand the exorbitant waste that goes with most corporate and business hamper firms," Ms Fletcher states, "We have seen examples where up to two thirds of the hamper box is filled with styrofoam bricks - and this is from a significant, trusted global organization - it's just not good enough!" Hunter Valley Hampers uses a lightweight but 100 % recycled internal filler, so receivers are not overwhelmed with the issue of disposal of styrofoam bricks.

"One of the worst offenders is those little cellulose peanuts - they just drive me NUTZ when they spill out everywhere all over the place! They might get stuck - so I find myself crawling around on knees and hands picking up cellulose peanuts when in fact I should be relaxing with my gourmet hamper!

It is a real awaken cal when rather than sending a many thanks hamper to a valued buddy or client - you are instead sending them the burden of removing and chasing those peanuts around your home when they blow everywhere.

It is a real relief to know you can really rely on Hunter Valley Hampers for sensible, recycled packaging - made from 100 % office paper waste - and also you will be also gifted very easy removal once you open you Christmas Hampers. Its a real point of difference and something you won't be blessed with when you choose other less delicate vendors. Choosing Hunter Valley Hampers never felt so good!
