Our pistachio packaging solves the societal issue of having nowhere to conveniently dispose of old pistachio shells. Our improved packaging features a thin barrier dividing the pouch creating a convenient space to dispose of the unwanted shells. The improved pouch could also be used for products beyond pistachios including other shelled nuts and individually wrapped candy. The pouch features a transparent eco-friendly material allowing consumers to easily see the product and the improved design.
