The health and wellness consumer category continues to outpace the broad food and beverage industry as a growing number of consumers aspire to eat healthier and make better choices for themselves and their families. For this reason alone, Save-On-Foods sought to expand its Private Brand offering with a dedicated health and wellness brand.
From concept to execution, Fish Agency conceived this new line of limited-edition high-end wines offered by Calgary’s Co-op Wine Spirits Beer. The Social Collection remains a principal offering that differentiates Co-op Wine Spirits Beer and keeps consumers coming back.
Giant Tiger partnered with the Fish Agency to rebrand EKCO, an existing line of kitchenware, resulting in successful retention of heritage branding elements and elevated brand perception.
Fish Agency adapted and rolled out this complex, large-scale redesign across multiple categories for the Sobeys Compliments brand, with the objective of accelerating Private Brand recognition among their customers. It translated to sales, with Compliments’ penetration growing dramatically since the new design hit shelves.
Given the post-pandemic economy and the ever-increasing cost of living, consumers are tightening their purse strings and changing their buying patterns as they pivot towards Private Brands. 53% of consumers now say they shop at a store specifically for its Private Brands*.
Conceptual Package DesignFrom typographic styling or a colour palette selection, to an image that refuses to be ignored, visual communication is a strategically effective way for Private Brands to define their brand voice, increase shelf appeal and connect with customers at an emotional level.
