In the olden days of fresh food presentation (probably the years before 2015!) it was considered by many businesses that the food product was the hero. And it was sufficient to display fresh food in any tray or bowl. These containers were typically white or black and they were often displayed in a rectangular, flat, grid-like array. Sizes were randomly mixed with the aim of fitting the maximum number of containers in the space available.

Today's way of thinking is that these old-time displays were visually boring, failed to add to the customer's shopping experience, did not respond to customer's changing shopping habits and did little to distinguish one store's displays from those of another. Unfortunately many businesses still use this approach when setting up or renovating their displays.
