Honest Tea makers of Honest Kids juice pouches recently made a change to their juice pouch packaging that caused a stir. The company added the words "no high fructose corn syrup" to the packaging of their popular juice pouches designed for kids.
The addition seems like a good thing right? Well to many it was however the Coca Cola company who is a major investor in Honest Tea wasn't too happy. Since the controversy developed the issue has been worked out and Honest Tea has kept the phrase on its kids juice packaging.
The issue focused attention on packaging and a number of mainstream media outlets picked up the story.
Honest has always been a leader in more efficient and sustainable packaging - its good to see the company is also using its packaging to inform consumers about the contents of their product.
