It’s The Fugly Office Fruit Box, And Everyone Loves It

Oct 08, 2023Jonathan Englert

Let’s face it: No matter how much you love your job, there’s always that mid-morning or mid-afternoon dip that can cause the energy and enthusiasm to flag a bit. That’s where the office fruit box comes in. Grabbing something out of a Good & Fugly box gives you that micro-break to rest and reset, and then the energy from the fruit will hit and get you through the rest of the day. 

We’re delivering fruit boxes to offices of all sizes in all locations, and it’s quickly becoming a hit! Each box is filled with different, seasonal fruit, giving everyone in the office something to look forward to each week.

Just some of the benefits of fruit boxes for the office include:

The Daily Vitamin Boost

Remember when the vending machine used to be your only source of office sustenance? And we’re using “sustenance” very loosely there. A chocolate bar isn’t really cutting it. The growing popularity of fruit boxes are rendering those machines obsolete. It’s not just that they’re tasty. They’re also a good dose of motivation, vitality, and good health.

Work can be draining. Deadlines, demanding bosses, and endless meetings can take a toll on your energy levels. That box of fresh, juicy fruit is like a burst of sunshine on a gloomy day and then, energised and balanced from the good nutrients, you’ll be ready for the next Zoom call.

And, unlike a candy bar, the energy and nutrients from the fruit will help boost brainpower and creativity. Not only will you feel better and have more energy, but you’ll find yourself hitting walls with your workload far less frequently.

Happy Team, Happy Office

A fruit box is also a good mood builder. Especially when the fruit is as distinctive and fun to look at as the fuglies. 

You’ll never quite know what you’re getting in a box. And so, on delivery day, the team can enjoy opening it up and seeing what natural treats they’ve got to look forward to that week. It might seem like a simple activity, but it’s the small things that help teams bond beyond their work, and a team that’s gelling has a positive influence on the overall business. After all, happy employees are more likely to stay committed, engaged, and motivated.

Offices of yesteryear had the water cooler. These days, they have the fruit box. You’ll be amazed how many impromptu meetings, idea-sharing sessions and breakout discussions can occur when bumping into someone who is grabbing their morning apple or orange. 

Environmental Impact

Let's not forget the positive environmental impact of office fruit boxes. When you provide your team with fresh, locally sourced fruit from Good & Fugly, you’re helping address the food waste crisis, helping to minimise waste from packaging across the office, and promoting better and more sustainable farming practices. 

Good & Fugly fruit boxes come in eco-friendly packaging too. This means that not only can your people enjoy delicious fruit guilt-free, but you’re doing something that can help your business meet its ESG obligations. It's a win-win situation!

A Cost-Effective Perk

Research suggests that the modern employee isn’t exclusively motivated by their incomes. A fulfilling workplace is one that offers the right set of perks and benefits that help them get the most out of their time in the office and as part of the organisation. 

Compared to other common office perks, such as gym membership, meals, or entertainment benefits, fruit boxes are a budget-friendly, and yet well-regarded option. Fruit boxes help people make the most of their break times, save them from needing to remember to bring their own snacks to the office, and unlike the gym memberships, actually get used.

A Symbol of Wellness

Finally, and perhaps most significantly of all, the presence of office fruit boxes sends a clear message to the people in the office: wellness matters in your workplace. A business that cares about nutrition is likely to care about its employees in other ways too. It’s something that might never be vocalised, but as an employee, it feels good to know that the organisation has your physical and mental health as a top priority.  

The office fruit box is a symbol of workplace wellness, a catalyst for community, and a source of positive energy and motivation for the entire team. For such a small investment the returns are well worthwhile, so it’s little surprise that more and more offices are adopting fruit boxes as a weekly perk. 

Just remember that with Good & Fugly the benefits extend to also supporting your local farmers, and helping to fight food waste!
