STRIKING BRANDS WITH CONSUMER APPEAL

According to a study analysing the value of packaging design to a brand, there is a strong correlation between packaging and purchases. 73% of interviewed customers cited a significant reliance on product packaging designs when making a purchase decision.

Research shows 63% of consumers say good imagery promotes purchase more than any description.

“Our experience tells us that consumers buy products which stand out, so ensuring we provide you with striking brands helps give you a competitive edge”

 

 

 

Taste, Origin, Quality

Driving repeat sales and building brand loyalty.

We test EVERY product, every flavour with only the very best products making it through our team selection process.

Externally we sit on numerous judging panels of industry award programs, ensuring we have access to the best new product, judged not only by us but by industry experts.

Each brand tells a story, giving your sales team a point of difference.

“Buying a product on how it looks is a first purchase but to ensure the consumer returns then having taste, origin and quality is essential”
