Heinz collaborated with Jones Knowles Ritchie, JKR, on its first-ever brand refresh, in order to streamline branding across its different products. The new branding was initially released to consumers in the United Kingdom earlier this year, and following that it has come to over 32 million consumers worldwide.
The brand refresh mandated packaging changes in 20 of the companies products, including baked beans, ketchup, and mayonnaise. The new branding highlights consistency across products, which was shown in the case study from Jones Knowles Ritchie. The new packaging draws attention to the company’s 150 years of operations, as well as the ‘simple greatness,’ which Heinz facilitates.
Victoria Sjardin, the VP of marketing at Kraft Heinz’s International Zone, released a statement about the new branding, “Working with JKR, we have created a cohesive set of assets that will help align the Heinz brand across all markets, uniting everyone behind the brand purpose to help deliver growth long-term."
