World’s First NFT Based Physical Packaging


Natural Abundance, a New Zealand plant-based food tech startup, launches its first non-fungible token (NFT) based physical packaging, a one-of-a-kind set of 200 collectible packets printed and distributed exclusively across Countdown stores in New Zealand. Holders of these physical packets will get free airdrop of digital NFT art minted on the Ethereum blockchain – Art on Opensea

The collectible packaging for Blueberry Plant Cakes will be available from Waitangi Day Sunday, 6th of February 2022, across undisclosed Countdown stores in New Zealand.

NFT’s are the latest worldwide phenomenon and are gaining more and more attention. In essence, NFT represents a unique token, that is a non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a digital ledger. NFTs can be used to represent easily reproducible items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files as unique items, and use blockchain technology to establish a verified and public proof of ownership.

While NFTs exist in the digital space, New Zealand-owned start-up, Natural Abundance has announced that they are launching their first digital NFT based packaging, by combining the best of two worlds (digital and physical). Natural Abundance, recently acquired by tech-oriented plant-based milk company MILK 2.0.

Kristina Ivanova, Managing Director of Natural Abundance, “This is our first attempt to move retail to a new era of ownership and brand loyalty.”

If you hold one of these exclusive 200 packages you will be holding one of the “world’s first” physical packets with digital art minted on the Ethereum blockchain using Layer 2 side chain scaling solution Polygon.

“We won’t blame you if you decide to devour our cake, but you will still have the physical asset to hold as your collectible,” says Kristina.

NFTs allow people to buy and sell ownership of unique digital items and keep track of who owns them using blockchain technology, but Natural Abundance wanted to bring them to the physical world.

“We wanted to make something special, something bigger than us and our brand. We wanted to reflect true New Zealand; New Zealand I fell in love with and New Zealand that reflects and portrays strong innovation and an attitude of punching above our weight globally,” says Kristina.

The team spent months thinking about the art, though the answer was rather simple, we decided to dedicate this first piece of NTF to the word “NEW ZEALAND” which is printed across all of our packets.

Each letter in the word “NEW ZEALAND” is dedicated to one unique and globally recognized New Zealand icon with its own unique story.

“If you look closer, you can see hand-drawn illustration,” Kristina says.

High definition art can be viewed on open sea or on the Natural Abundance website and to make this fun, holders of these packet will receive a free airdrop of digital NFT Art. Details to claim your free airdrop can be found here

We think there’s something interesting about access, exclusivity, and the increasing rhetoric around ownership culture that accompanies this new form of digital identification. We think NFT is another medium that allows brands to play with creativity.

Kristina says, “Our aim in the future is to explore ways to use blockchain technologies for our business and for our customers. It will be the challenger brands like Natural Abundance that will set the tone of what’s to come.”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
