Cannings Free Range Butchers, the brand that I created, has been synonymous with the colour green since its inception back in 2010. For me, the colour green was indicative of our commitment to environmentally beneficial agriculture practices, fresh grass and new beginnings. Green is also a wonderful contrasting colour to meat. After sporting this colour for over a decade, I felt the urge to reimagine the brand—it's colours, the logo, and the name itself.
