"From day dot, young Geoff had a curious and unshakeable love of beans"


It is only fitting then, that when Geoff grows up, he gets a job at the Heinz baked bean factory. As "Head of Innovation" it is job to create new products in the laboratory. Young and single Geoff realises that a tin of baked beans can be too large for one person and he designs "The one for one", a tin of beans just right for one person.

One day, Geoff notices a beautiful colleague in the Department of Spaghetti, he realises he may need to share his beans, so designs a larger can - "The one for two". Two soon become four, with the introduction of little twin beans and Geoff realises that he needs to create "The one for all" tin of beans.


Ideas for writing

- Write Geoff's biography

- Re-tell Geoff's story

- Write the dialogue between Geoff and his wife

- Create adverts for beans

- Design, explain and advertise a new bean can size or a bean invention
