AGROPOŠTA: NATURAL SYRUP
We are Agropošta! We make 100% natural syrups from healthy plants and fresh fruit. We pick all the organic ingredients by hand: it doesn’t get any more natural!
ABOUT OUR DESIGN
The name Agropošta literally means ‘mail from nature’. Our design is designed with that as a starting point and with great attention to detail. Our graphic designer Joanne Vis works with details that you might not immediately see or recognise at first glance, but which together create our entire look.
Joanne drew inspiration for the packaging from airmail. The first versions of our sachets used the well-known blue and red stripes of airmail envelopes. Later in a subsequent version of the design, this was translated through to a colour for every taste. Furthermore, stamps used for airmail and postcards recur on all packaging.
The botanical illustrations that adorn our packaging are in the style found in antique biology textbooks. They exude tradition, reflecting the pristine nature we love so much. For each flavour, there is an ALL over print that can be found on the back of our bottles of syrup, because not only the front deserves attention.
With mail from nature, stamps are of course not to be missed. The stamp shape appears in several places on our packaging. Stamps used to feature images of something specific to the country, meant to attract tourists. A tree that only grows in the country in question, for example, or a special flower. With that idea in mind, the stamps on our packaging feature various botanical images that you can find in Croatia.
Typography of the logo
Like our syrups, the fonts we use are a combination of past and present: a serif font (Didot) and a sans serif font (Gill Sans). In Agropošta’s logo, the ‘O’ is a postmark. Had you spotted it yet?
DIRECTLY FROM NATURE
Agropošta literally means “post from nature”. Isn’t it beautiful? Who doesn’t want to drink 100% natural syrup, prepared with love and care? Actually, our syrups are liquid love letters. Love letters in classic flavors like strawberry and lemon and with a surprising twist, like sage and lavender. You can find all our syrups in our webshop and at various retailers.
With great care and respect for nature, the ingredients are picked by hand. Only the best fruit and plants are selected and processed into Agropošta syrups. This way we can make sure that every drop of syrup is of top quality. We have chosen different types of syrups, all of which have their own typical taste. Good to know: all our products are gluten free, vegan, made with purely organic ingredients and we do not use artificial additives or preservatives.
Curious about our flavors?
Our syrups are still handmade in the traditional way. In 2011 the Svaic family started producing syrups. The recipes for all our syrups were created out of love for and knowledge of nature, which has been passed on by this family for generations. We know for sure that where you put love in, that’s where love comes from – and you can taste it in the Agropošta syrups! All our handmade syrups are suitable to make a nice glass of lemonade, to use in a cocktail or mocktail or to finish your dessert.
Respect for nature
Ecological sustainability is our top priority. We make sure that untouched nature is there for the next generation. We only pick what we need, without damaging the plant. We treat all our plants with love. Our strawberry plants, lemon trees and lavender plants are given all the space they need to grow naturally. So next year we can harvest the same plants and shrubs again and generations after us will be able to do the same.
Croatia, where we pick all our ingredients and make syrups, has different climate zones. This gives us plenty of choice to choose and use the tastiest plants and fruits.
