Intego, company that specializes in providing security solutions for Macs, announced that it will start delivering its products in edible packaging. This move is part of Intego’s strong belief in sustainable development and part of its work to reduce the impact of its products on the environment.

According to Intego all the boxes for its products will be made out of organically-grown materials. The boxes will be made out of rice and soy. The inscription on the box will use vegetable-based inks. Once the customer receives the Intego product, he or she can enjoy a nutritious meal – and by that I mean the package itself.

“Intego has long believed in the importance of sustainable development, and has always tried to reduce the impact of its products on the environment. By introducing edible packaging, Intego is taking a major step forward, as the process of eating packaging greatly reduces the environmental impact of the company’s products. We hope that other software companies, and other companies that use cardboard packaging, will follow our lead,” the company explained.

Intego will start using the boxes as of today, the 1st of April. You can distinguish a regular box by the fact that the edible one bears an “Eat me!” logo – like in the image to the upper left.

The taste of the box varies according to the product you purchase. The box for VirusBarrier X6 tastes like bacon. The box for Internet Security Barrier X6 tastes like roasted chicken. To make the eating experience as pleasurable as possible, the boxes will also come with packets of salad dressing. For VirusBarrier there’s French dressing; for Internet Security Barrier X6 there’s blue-cheese dressing.

“Standard license boxes, good for protecting up to two Macs, will contain two packets of salad dressing; family pack boxes, which protect up to five Macs, will contain five packets. In addition, nutritional information for the box and salad dressing is printed on the sides of the boxes,” explained Intego.
