Rootree knows that customized packaging can be a game-changer for new and established companies alike, but that the cost and time it takes to create it is not attainable for all businesses. The RT | Foundation Award was created to take the stress away from designing a package that will catch the consumer’s eye and help the recipient’s business grow.
