Mr. Paul Antoniadis reports


Good Natured Products Inc. has welcomed gourmet fresh produce grower, Girl & Dug Farm , as a customer embracing sustainability via earth-friendly packaging from Good Natured, made from annually renewable, 99-per-cent plant-based materials.

Girl & Dug Farm is a second-generation family-run business growing unique fruits and vegetables for some of the top chefs in the world on its 180-acre farm in San Marcos, Calif. It ships bespoke produce boxes to some of the best restaurants nationwide, including Michelin-starred restaurants in Los Angeles , San Francisco , Chicago and New York . Girl & Dug has also expanded its business model to include custom produce boxes for at-home gourmet meals (Michelin-star chef not included). With the changing landscape of eating trends and growing food security expectations, it also had to account for the logistics challenge of finding durable packaging that makes its produce look as good as it tastes and is functional within its shipping requirements.

Good Natured earth-friendly packaging was the ideal solution to meet Girl & Dug Farm's need for functionality, durability and sustainability impact. "Good Natured offered us everything we were looking for in sustainable packaging: great design that shows off our product and protects it from damage in shipping, great customer service and reliability," shared Aaron Choi , owner of Girl & Dug Farm . "Everything from our hiring practices, growing methods and packaging choices must be an extension of who we are and what we love to do. We're fortunate to have found a partner like Good Natured to work alongside us to reach our sustainability goals."

Growing consumer demand for healthier products was another key driver for why the California -based business began looking for viable alternatives to petroleum-based packaging. All age groups, especially Millennials and Gen Z, are more aware of the negative health and environmental impacts of everyday consumer products and how they are packaged. They increasingly expect brands and retailers to be more socially and environmentally responsible, they look to connect with brands that reflect their beliefs, and they are willing to pay a premium for ecofriendly or sustainable products.

"Companies and consumers want to do the right thing, but not at the expense of quality, performance or service," added Paul Antoniadis , chief executive officer of Good Natured. "Our business model makes it easy for all sizes of business to switch to plant-based products that perform equal to, or better than, the petroleum-based options we're replacing. We're excited to partner with Girl & Dug Farm , who are making a conscious decision to enhance their product offering with sustainable packaging."
