The purpose of this blog is to better the understanding of both colour in packaging and allowing synesthetic experiences that will affect the colourblind person’s abilities to shop capably and effectively. Colour blindness has both little and extreme effect on a person’s life. The most extreme of this would be the inability to shop in a situation that uses colour coding for certain tasks. It is possible that a colourblind purchaser is unable to process some or most of the aspects of visual colour information, potentially increasing their inability to select in the marketplace. Colourblind people are at a disadvantage in exchange relationships where their performance is related to see, to recognize and differentiate among colours.
Food Labeling Problems for the Colour Blind:
Design of packaging
When designing& packaging, many companies do not consider visibility, clarity and feasibility, contrast of text, accuracy and logo placement.
Incorrect packaging and/or labelingare a significant cause of differential product recalls. Therefore, where possible, consideration should be given to the provision of dedicated packing lines to reduce the risk of mislabeling. By law, food businesses must notify the Agency (and the local authority where the business is based) if they need to withdraw products from the market, which don’t comply with food safety requirements. Businesses and local authorities can use this online form to notify the Agency.
In most countries, especially in India where VEG & NON-VEG choices are extremely sensitive, the logo placement and colouring has to be precise and understood by everyone.
