News on New French Bakery

When New French Bakery opened its newest plant in 2007, it knew its products needed to not only fit in with consumer desires but also stand out from the in-store bakery's "wall of brown."

The February 2010 article in Baking & Snack publication features an in-depth discussion about how New French Bakery is striving to stay ahead of the artisan bread competition. Just one facet of the strategy was partnering with Duffy for the rebranding and new packaging design, introduced May 2009.

An excerpt from the article (read more by downloading the PDF at the right):


Mr. Kelsey, who trained at the Cordon Bleu school in Paris and worked at a 3-star restaurant and Parisian bakery, knows how to make high-quality baked foods with expensive ingredients. But he also understands that with only four simple ingredients, a lot more has to go into the process to outshine others in the market. In 2008, management began a series of packaging changes to entice consumers to pick New French items over others in the “wall of brown” of the in-store bakery. “I knew that if we could motivate more people to try our product, we would continue to elevate our sales with repeat customers,” Mr. Kelsey said. “We also wanted to offer a brand that was recognizable and inviting within the in-store bakery.”   

Changes included clear packaging   with printed pastel blue and large simple wording such as “TAKE BAKE SLICE SAVOR” and “GRILL SLICE SHARE SMILE.” “We also adjusted the size of some baguettes and rolls so we could ship all types of bread in a single sized corrugated tray versus a box,” Mr. Kelsey said.   

As it turned out, the shippable display tray reduced corrugated use by 30%, saving resources. Head space in the case was eliminated, thus enhancing integrity of the products during shipping and storage. “We were actually able to reduce our price to customers by close to 35%,” Ms. Rangel noted.

  • It is probably hiehgr than the coop? Once they are in a habbit, they will continue with it.I've had hens that I have moved down the other end of the field and at night, they fly up and out of the run, and the next run, and so on until they reach their coop to roost at the end! I have to physically carry them back and after a couple of nights, they are happy in their new' home. [url=]oxdwtzuqmtb[/url] [link=]ijdhtgxop[/link]
