OUGD601 - Context of Practice 3: Summer Development

Over the Summer, I have made a constant record/diary of everything I have thought of relating to my essay and practical ideas. All of it is dated and explains clearly my thought process and how I ended up considering ideas relating to edible packaging/reuse of bread packaging, to eventually deciding to focus on pasta being the subject matter.

I also collected a lot of articles from Country Homes and Interiors magazines over the summer as there were a lot of food related articles about individual businesses which I found really interesting.

OUGD601 - Context of Practice 3: Tesco Bread Article

When searching for bread related articles I came across this one below, which talks about Tesco food waste as well as just bread. I am finding it really interesting to discover more about this subject and can't wait to see how it develops.

OUGD601 - Context of Practice 3: Tatton Park Food Lovers Festival

Today I went to the Food Lovers Festival at Tatton Park to gather further primary research. I went to a food show with two different chefs which was really interesting. It was something I had never experienced before and I quite liked how the kitchen area was designed and presented. 

In a similar way to the Liverpool Food Festival, I took lots of photographs to reference all of the differently designed jars and packaging for inspiration at a later date. 

I was also fortunate enough to be able to pick up some leaflets about ReFood which is another sustainable food organisation. Interestingly, I didn't see anybody engaging with this when I was there, everyone was more bothered about the food and everything else that was going on. 

When I arrived, I was given a free Lakeland bag with their magazine inside. This was quite different to the Lidl bag I received at the Liverpool Food Festival, and had more of a focus on the gadgets surrounding food as well as the food itself. This did give me the idea to start looking at Lakeland in a bit more depth as they have so many existing products which are really innovative, so I would have to make sure that anything I design hasn't been done by them already.
