Carfaro and Fanecco
Created by designers Alberto Carlo Carfaro and Giorgio Fanecco, these sandwich packaging ideas play off of using a foldable sheet of cardboard to give consumers a simple, hand-held sandwich packaging tool. Using a single sheet of cardboard (which can be made of recycled material as well as recycled itself), the interior of these sandwich packaging ideas shows consumers exactly what is on the sandwich and on what layer. Likewise, the folding flaps of the cardboard packaging give consumers an easy, mess-free way to eat their sandwiches on the go!
