P&W Weighs in on the Future of Fresh & Easy

Close watchers of the grocery industry may have learned that Tesco is undertaking a strategic review of Fresh & Easy to assess its future under Tesco’s stewardship. It was a bold brand experiment never attempted before—on many levels. U.K.-based grocery giant Tesco came to America with a concept ahead of its time.

The concept was a new brand for this retailer offering convenient, better-for-you prepared foods, fresh produce and common staples brought to local neighborhoods. Tesco planned a first-phase rollout of over 200 innovative Fresh & Easy markets in California, Arizona and Nevada over six years. They invested in an aggressive private label strategy with sophisticated branding and package design. They enlisted London-based design agency P&W to create a solid, flexible brand foundation that could expand into dozens of category-specific directions. Working in collaboration with the Deutsch advertising agency in L.A., the new brand was born.

The best faces forward
Fresh & Easy launched with 1000+ “all-natural” private label products; within four years, that increased to 3000+. The heavy emphasis on private label meant the strategy for implementation was storewide. Products ranged from everyday core products to specialty kids foods to premium adult indulgence.

All Fresh & Easy products adhered to comprehensive food safety regulations. Beyond that, strict food policies of no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives—as well as no high fructose corn syrup or trans fats in any of their private label products—were set to revolutionize the U.S. market.

Focusing on values of honesty, good quality, simplicity, and health-consciousness, we created a fresh, uncluttered consumer experience that would engender loyalty to Fresh & Easy products.

The philosophies that guided the extensive Fresh & Easy design work were attended to with great thoughtfulness. P&W’s loving dedication as brand guardians, and the ability to remain creatively agile, made for a fruitful client/agency relationship.

Brand value = business value
Fresh & Easy’s brand promise goes beyond consistent quality to continual improvement. Recipes are reviewed and refined, healthier ingredients are sourced, and salt content is reduced whenever possible.

Fresh & Easy is innovative in a number of ways. From a product development standpoint, the brand introduced the U.S. to “facts up front,” a nutrition labeling system that brings key aspects of the nutrition panel from the back of package to the front. At the time it was implemented on Fresh & Easy products, similar systems were in place in the U.K. A voluntary labeling system is now gaining substantial momentum in the U.S.

Fresh & Easy skillfully managed to introduce innovation after innovation, from the aggressive new product development (NPD) program for private label to the intuitive self-checkout stations. Both of these are now a big part of competitors’ models.

Even though the package designs have been recognized dozens of times in graphic design awards programs, as well as by the DBA Design Effectiveness Awards program, the most important measure of the designs’ success has been customers’ positive reactions—and loyalty.

Private label revolution
Over the last 10 years, private label in the U.S. has ushered in a new way to think about store brands. Private label brands are now managed in a similar way to long-dominant national brands.

The success of private label campaigns relies on consistent quality. The parent brand contains the brand promise. Fresh & Easy starts with its name as a brand promise. The “Fresh” part is self-explanatory. The “Easy” part can be interpreted several ways, including “convenient” and “time-saving.” These elements co-exist in the logo’s clock-apple device affectionately known as the “clapple.”

Other retailers have taken note of these changes in consumer habits and invested heavily in their own private label programs in recent years. They do say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

“Walgreens Spikes Private Label Market Share”
“We’re seeing significant momentum in our private brands,” said president and CEO Gregory Wasson. “We’ve invested heavily in our own brands, including Walgreens, Delish, Nice! and many more, and year-over-year private brand penetration in our front-end sales improved 200 basis points to 22%.”

Revolutionizing the U.S. retail world was no mean ambition, but perhaps the slow burn of it was not quick enough for this fast-paced retailer. Many signs indicate that the brand is living and growing. Just not fast enough, it seems.

Whatever the future holds for F&E, we hope that the brand and stores can be sold intact, so that the Fresh & Easy can mature to its fullest potential. We are proud to be a part of such a unique experience with a revolutionary company and hope to continue our work with this innovative brand.

Leading With Core Values
Fresh & Easy sought to avoid messy brand extensions by developing clean, clear brand guidelines that build value and maintain equity. Launching with clear, uncomplicated food packaging centered around six key principles:

  • Being Fresh: Selling fresh, high-quality goods at affordable prices.
  • Being Easy: Easy to shop, easy to use. One of the most dedicated strategies was incorporating resealability in as many categories as possible, to eliminate bag clips and avoid stale, ruined food.
  • Being Transparent: Whenever possible, Fresh & Easy packaging showcases the food inside. Having nothing to hide builds trust with customers.
  • Leading with Private Label: Committing to being better than national brands, making Fresh & Easy private label food the hero, and being the best of the best.
  • Displaying Efficiencies: Fresh & Easy promoted the use of retail-ready and display-ready packaging that enables one-touch replenishment.
  • Simplifying: Reducing clutter, organizing SKUs, and stripping down the retail environment all help customers find what they want easily.

P&W was founded in 1987 by current directors Adrian Whitefoord and Simon Pemberton. The company has offices in London and Los Angeles, and services clients around the world, including Tesco, Ferrero and Healthy Food Brands in the UK, Fresh & Easy in the USA and Seicomart in Japan.

The no-blister PW-Pack: A 100 percent compostable retail package

Rick Lingle, Technical Editor — Packaging Digest, 2/20/2013 3:29:42 PM





 

 

PulpWorksPulpWorks, Inc. (San Rafael, CA), designers and manufacturers of molded pulp packaging, and EO Products (San Rafael, CA), makers of essential oil-based natural and organic bath, skin and hair care products, have co-developed a 100% compostable package for retail displays – the PW-Pack.

 

The patent-pending PW-Pack is a safe, easy-to-open and environmentally superior alternative to the plastic (polyvinyl chloride, PVC) blister pack.

 

The simple, two-piece package consists of:  a molded pulp backing piece with a cavity that securely holds the saleable item; and a printed, branded, die-cut face card (see photo).

 

 

It uses no adhesives, tapes, or staples, though PulpWorks can “paper staple” the face card to the pulp backing piece in-line if the customer wishes to do so.

 

Currently, EO Products does not have a launch date set for the PW-Pack, however Packaging Digest has learned that the company is in talks with a national drugstore chain to carry the products.

 

PulpWorks co-Founder & chief executive officer Paul Tasner informs PD that the PW-Pack blister is fully customizable for size, thickness, contents, texture and, to a certain degree, color. He also notes that the product is displayed blister-free and “bare” with an open front panel. The cavity in which the saleable article is contained is designed to tightly hold that article. It requires, by design, an effort to dislodge it, according to Tasner.

 

“Obviously, our package is not an ideal match for those products where contact is an issue,” offers Tasner. “That still leaves countless other options for us, so we’re extremely excited about the potential size of the market and breadth of categories available to us. By all accounts, this is a multi-billion dollar playing field. “

T-Shirts and Plastic Water Bottles Are Best Promotional Products For Marathons

T-Shirts and Plastic Water Bottles Are Best Promotional Products For Marathons

Besides the Olympic Games and the World Cup in Soccer, there is no more internationally branded sports event than the traditional Marathon. This is an excellent, untapped opportunity for marketers and brand builders.

At 42.195 kilometers, or 26 miles and 385 yards, the Marathon is usually run as a road race and was born as a commemoration of a Greek Soldier who ran with a message from the Battle of Marathon to Athens. The first marathon in modern time occurred in 1896 at Olympics and today over 500 Marathons are arranged around the world.

Five of the most prestigious races in the Marathon world are Boston, New York City, Chicago, London and Berlin. These races attract hundreds of thousands of people and are media staples running up significant news coverage, media coverage, footage and print for weeks at a time. Marathons are often isolated events from city to city, so a local coordination of sponsorships and marketing efforts is often possible.

Most participants of a Marathon race are not running to win, but running for the accomplishment. The strategy is often to run from water stop to water stop where water bottles are available.

The brand building opportunities surrounding a Marathon are many. Firstly, you have the runners themselves, who are in fact walking, jogging or running as billboards and could be wearing your brand or slogan on their backs.

Secondly, you have all the functional staff surrounding the Marathon working on arrangements and coordination. Official staff counts in the thousands and many of the officials are media spokes people who will be getting face time with film cameras and journalists.

Thirdly, Marathons are major tourist and crowd magnets. For some of the larger Marathons, spectator crowds count in the hundreds of thousands lining up along the streets and taking part of the festivities. There is a high level of street vendor culture surrounding a Marathon and often times merchandise is being sold to commemorate the event with T-shirts such as “I was there, Chicago 2006 Marathon”.

Besides from T-shirt the most important aspect of a Marathon is staying hydrated. In the average Marathon time of 4 hours, 32 minutes and 8 seconds runners will have to replenish their water supply several times to be able to finish the race. Water stations are placed throughout the Marathon route with Water Bottles. While the drinking of water from Water bottles has to be leveled out with intake of salt to prevent hyponatremia, a Marathon runner will drink about 4-6 ounces of liquid every 20-3o minutes of the race.

Often times, the water stations are also covered by media and a large on watching crowd so the stations are ideal for promotional branding and branded Water Bottles.

DiscountMugs.com is a large distribution company based in Miami, Florida. They are web-based and factory-direct which allows them to keep prices lower than the rest of the competition. They also have a huge selection of promotional products from wine glasses and shot glasses to water bottles and champagne flutes.

How Shelves and Racks Can Organize Your Kitchen

How Shelves and Racks Can Organize Your Kitchen

Having an organized kitchen can save a family both time and money. Kitchen organizers are among the hottest products on any household site or in any household store, and with good reason. Organizing your kitchen makes it easier to find what you need when you need it. It also helps you to plan your grocery shopping better and gives you enough storage space to stock up on weekly specials at your favorite grocery store.

With many new products on the market, it may come as a surprise to learn that the best solutions to most of your storage and organizational needs have been known for long time. These solutions have not changed and shelves and racks are an excellent choice for storing your kitchen accessories. Full size pantry substitutes to spice racks and dish racks can get you organized and keep you organized. Here is just a few of the ways that shelves and racks can organize your kitchen.

Extra Storage Room Helps Organize Your Kitchen

No kitchen ever has enough storage space. Whether you have ample cabinet space, open shelves or almost no room at all for stocking up on supplies, there are storage solutions for you. These solutions can expand the room you have for canned goods, staples and other cooking supplies. Here are three problems that can be solved by adding extra storage space in the shape of shelves or racks.

Not enough space to store canned goods and staples

Many modern apartment kitchens lack adequate storage space for things like boxes of cereal, canned goods and pasta. A few over-the-counter cabinets just don’t offer enough space, especially if you like to stock up on things when they are on sale. There are a number of excellent storage solutions which can help you get things organized in your kitchen.

Get those stacks of cans out of the overhead cabinets and onto the shelves of a handy over the door pantry rack. The pantry door rack has eight adjustable shelves that hold everything from canned goods to tall bottles and cereal boxes. It is available in two sizes and costs less than . This is a great deal for any budget.

I cannot find anything in my crowded cabinets!

Deep under-counter cabinets make it difficult to find anything. Over-the-counter cabinets make you climb on stepstools to reach the back of the shelf. Even worse, everything is a jumbled together, making impossible to sort out a tin of cinnamon from a box of tea. When you need to organize your cabinets and shelves, reach for smaller organizers to help you create order.

Spice racks are a popular solution for stacks of little tins and jars of dried spices. There are many different styles of spice racks on the market. These include a very handy Auto-Measure Spice Rack that holds the contents of twelve standard size spice jars. It can sit on your counter or mount under a cabinet shelf to save counter space. The containers have a special dispenser that dispenses one-quarter teaspoon per click. It is handy, stylish and best of all; it removes the clutter of half-empty spice bottles on the cabinet shelf. If twelve kinds of spices are not enough for you, there is also a very clever spice organizer available. The three-drawer organizer fits easily on a standard cabinet shelf, and hold 27 full size or 54 half-size spice jars. The drawers pull out and fold down to make it easy to reach each bottle.

Cleaning the clutter of your pots and pans cabinet

Under counter cabinets are simply not designed for holding pots and pans, despite the fact that nearly everyone stores their pots and pans in this location. You do not have to worry about awkward stacks of pots and pans if you make use of some handy storage solutions meant to help get your kitchen organized.

The Lid Maid Organizer is designed to hold the lids of your pots and pans, allowing you to find then whenever you are looking to cook a meal. The lid rack installs easily inside your cabinet with runner tracks so that you can simply pull it out to find the lid you need. It holds six pot lids, or up to 36 plastic lids for storage dishes.

Rollout Cabinet Drawers are one of the greatest conveniences you can ever find, especially if you are using under counter cabinet space. They come in many different sizes so that you can customize them perfectly to suit your needs. Each drawer unit consists of ball-bearing glides that install on the cabinet floor so that you can easily pull the drawers out to reach what you need without pulling everything out of the cabinet first.

When you want to create more space in your kitchen by organizing your pots, pans, foodstuffs, and kitchen accessories, there are many products available which can help you get the job done. Do not forget the old organizer standbys like racks and shelves. Chances are that you may find exactly what you need.

Packaging and Sealing Tapes

Packaging and Sealing Tapes

While shipping or transporting goods, they would have to be packed securely. If they are packed properly and sealed using good packaging and sealing tape, it would ensure that the packages reach their destination intact.

Effective Means for Secure Material Packing

Packaging tapes are available in a variety of specifications and serve household, commercial and industrial purposes. If you run a business, packaging and sealing tapes are something that you need to have at hand all the time. Packing boxes and cartons that are effectively sealed with packaging tapes facilitate long-term storage and transportation of goods.  In fact, sealing tapes are a much more effective option than glue, pins or staples as these can come off easily. Packaging tapes have adhesive-coated backing and superior properties that make them strong and user-friendly.

There are different kinds of sealing tapes available for material packaging. If the packages are heavyweight, they would need heavy-duty packaging and sealing tape. While packing fragile products that need to be handled with care, you need strong packaging tapes. General purpose box sealing tape is one such useful sealing tape which can be used for proper sealing of boxes containing fragile material. The tapes are resistant to splits, moisture and bursts. Lightweight cartons can be secured easily with less expensive tapes.

Packaging tapes that are adhesive-coated can have adhesive on both sides or on one side only. Sealing tapes come in various forms like hot melt, strapping and custom tape, teflon, clear tapes, acrylic and paper backed, etc. Reinforced gummed paper packaging tapes are widely used in export units as they are not affected by changes in temperature.

Shop from Online Retailers

There are many options to procure these products in bulk. Online suppliers offer attractive discounts for bulk purchases. Browse online to explore the range of packaging and sealing tapes available in the market and purchase the kind to suit your budget and needs.

Gru Tea brings to the table an in-depth understanding of teas from around the world, infused with the Indian health and holistic concepts of Ayurveda, and enveloped with taste in every sip.

Ranbir Singh Bhai is the co-founder of “Yogi Tea-a renowned lifestyle tea in USA since 80s”. His experience and realization became the vision of Gru Tea: to inspire the well being of mind, body and spirit with the simple art of tea.

Gru Tea’s dedication to provide the finest teas can be found in the highest-quality ingredients it sources through its sister company Yogi Botanicals and the wisdom it applies when combining herbs and spices at processing and blending sites in Germany and India, while also acting socially responsible by protecting the earth’s natural resources. All Gru teas contain naturally organic ingredients in variable proportion. Our worldwide team of growers, processors, packers, blenders and tasters are committed to deliver the product and service for our clients.

We are thankful to all who have contributed in this journey from growers to processors and to fellow tea drinkers for their aspiring contribution and upliftment of our experience as their choice.

Gru Tea uses 100 percent recycled and recyclable paper in its packaging, as well as vegetable-based inks and dyes. Tea bags are 100 percent oxygen bleached and use pure cotton strings and staples made of inert metal.

CTC and orthodox teas are sourced from our partner tea estates in Darjeeling and Assam. Teas are sold in bulk form packed in paper sacks, jute bags or tea chests.

We have a taste for tea. And nothing tastes better than teas that are sustainably farmed and socially beneficial.

All tea comes from the “Camellia sinensis,” an evergreen shrub that may grow up to 60 feet in the wild. When cultivated for harvest, the tea bushes are kept to a height of about three feet. There are over 3000 varieties of tea, each with its own specific characteristics.

Tea is harvested after each flush – the sprouting of the top two leaves and the bud. The top two leaves and the bud are hand plucked and then processed into any of the four types of tea: Black, Green, Oolong, and White.

Black tea is withered, fully oxidized and dried. Black tea yields a hearty, amber-colored brew. Some of the popular black teas include English Breakfast and Darjeeling.

Green tea skips the oxidizing step. It is simply withered and then dried. It has a more delicate taste and is pale green / golden in color.

Oolong tea is popular in China. It is withered, partially oxidized, and dried. Oolong is a cross between black and green tea in color and taste.

White tea is the least processed. A very rare tea from China, White tea is not oxidized or rolled, but simply withered and dried by steaming.
