FormRoom began by analysing the competitive environment and target market for this new brand, identifying 3 Brand Pillars: Quality, Transparency and Community. Naturally’s brand purpose is crafted around its community as a local, reliable grocery store providing high quality products through their instore bakery, cheese and charcuterie counters alongside all other grocery essentials. The ‘Naturally Mine’ loyalty scheme is core to the brand community, which offers experience rewards such as a Supper Club or a Meet The Makers taster session.
FormRoom approached the packaging from insights gained in the market research stages. Responding to pain points such as reducing waste, transparency and freshness. We designed and produced bespoke resealable, reusable craft paper pouches with transparent windows to view product within, with a sealed freshness sticker. The Naturally stickers communicate the ingredients, the supplier and the instore packers name – creating a local connection between customer and the store team. The personalised freshness sticker act as an experience cue, building on brand engagement and communicates the authenticity in the transparent supply chain. FormRoom created an ‘Unpackaged Zone’ with self-service dispensers for grains, cereals, pasta etc incorporated to reduce waste and encourage reusing pouches or jars
