Dole created ink made from fruit to print posters that are more nutritious than junk food.

Today I learned this absolutely shocking fact. In Britain, 3 million people are affected by malnutrition, mainly due to the lack of nutrients in the food they choose to eat. Whether it be fries, biscuits, or sweets, statistics show that the UK eats more junk food than any other country in Europe. 

Dole teamed up with St Luke's in London to spread the word. And the concept St Luke's came up with is brilliantly hard-hitting. 

printing with fruit-ink

They created ink from fruit, and printed the posters with this ink, making the posters more nutritional than whatever junk food was available nearby.


The ‘Malnutrition Labels: Nutritional Ink’ campaign posters were strategically placed near vending machines and purveyors of junk food. The Art Direction throughout looks like a nutrition label, really bringing it home.

Powerful story, should be retold worldwide. Just because its PRINT does NOT make it JUNK (mail or otherwise). :) Well done.
