Grantstown Nurseries

Project overview

Grantstown Nurseries is based in Ballygunner on the outskirts of Waterford city in the southeast of Ireland. They have been supplying top quality tomatoes to the Irish market since 1978. They are a family business with a long tradition of innovation and the highest horticultural practices. They approached us a few years ago to design some labels for a new product range, and ever since then they’ve come back to us at the start of each season for various bits and bobs. We love working with them because of their passion for food, desire for simplicity and respect for design.

When Grantstown Nurseries first approached us, it was to design a new label for their Suntini range of tomatoes. We put it them that it would be a good idea to create a character for the design and have a bit of fun with it. They loved the idea and bought it into straight away. We’ve since gone onto design a few other labels, but it all started with the Suntini. Incidentally, it never ceases to amaze us how many varieties of tomato exist. Most people think red when they think tomato. We’ve seen yellow tomatoes, green tomatoes, even black tomatoes, in all shapes and sizes.

It’s always a pleasure working with Passion. As their name suggests, they’re very passionate about what they do. They’re also very professional and obliging. Nothing is ever too much trouble.
