Tasti Super Food Balls

Superfoods are mainstream. Previously a fringe consumer health trend, this has now permeated through to nearly every retail aisle. Tasti quickly identified ingredients powered by superfood ingredients and combined them with decadent flavour ingredients to create a new whole food ball offering for the consumer looking for a great tasting snack while being mindful of everyday health and wellbeing diet.

Tasti Fruit & Vege Balls

With 68% of consumers viewing snacking to help improve their quality of life*, Tasti is constantly innovating within the everyday snacking category bringing new taste experiences to market. Fruit & Vege Wholefood Balls was a first-to-market snack ball range that did not use dates as a base ingredient which is naturally high in sugar. Utilising a vege based recipe, with fruits to bring sweet taste profiles and hints of natural colour, this new offering has a cleaner and lighter taste experience.

It can be tricky entering a product category that already has well established players. For new category entrants, the challenge is in disrupting any habitual purchasing of shoppers.

Are you guilty of ignoring Unit Sales as a powerful measure for your brand?

Are you treating your packaging as your biggest media channel?

Marketers are starting to understand more and more that their packaging is the most important media channel they have. As marketing budgets tighten and traditional above the line channels are a smaller part (or not part at all) of campaigns for most brands; focus has moved to the most cost effective ways to drive shoppers through the path to purchase, and ultimately result in product being selected from shelf and put in the trolley (or basket online).

Purchasing behaviours and its impact on packaging design

More and more is being understood about the human mind, and what drives purchasing behaviour and brand choice. And these learnings are being used by more marketers (and design agencies like ours) in developing packaging design that works hard on shelf.
