Walkers crisps unveils new packs

Walkers crisps has introduced new packaging for its main range and references the provenance of ‘Home Grown’ British ingredients

A new look has been designed around new positioning, which brand owner Pepsico is calling, ‘The biggest flavour innovation around the product for ten years.’

Media reports suggest that the new packs have been designed by Design Bridge.

The Walkers identity has been tweaked and pack colours are now ‘deeper and richer’ to communicate quality according to Pepsico.

Nine flavours have been renamed and each now carries a strapline. They include: Definitely Prawn Cocktail with Vale of Evasham Tomatoes; Unmistakably Cheese and Onion with Cheddar from Somerset; Classically Ready Salted with Salt from Cheshire; and Distinctly Salt & Vinegar with Real British Vinegar.

A graphic made to look like a cross section of a potato features the words ‘Home Grown’ across a Union Flag, which can also be seen as a drop shadow.

Tractor-shaped display units, and point of sale featuring ‘iconic British scenery’ will be rolled out in-stores and new ad campaigns will air in March.
