Winterfold Farm Pick Your Own brings interactivity and choice to frozen food. Everyone is used to bagging and weighing fresh veg and many have visited pick-your-own farms. But when it comes to frozen veg, the selection is limited. With the Winterfold Farm concept, a wide range of prepared frozen vegetables will be displayed loose and shoppers will be able to serve themselves with special scoops.
To help guide 5-a-day consumption, scoops will be about one portion size for each line. As with fresh fruit and veg, each type will be priced separately - this is not a 'one price per 100g' pick'n'mix concept. Scales will automatically print the right labels.
A modular series of freezer-compatible boxes will be available in large, medium and small sizes. These can be carried home in a special cool bag for £1.99 or free with purchases of £5 or more.
The brand is traditional and reassuring, redolent of farming and market gardening. It's aimed at those looking for high-quality produce in a convenient, flexible format.
There are 18 so-called superfoods, each of which is rich in a range of natural plant nutrients shown to be good for our health. For those wishing to lead a healthy life, it's logical to include a high proportion of superfoods in their diets.
But awareness of the superfoods is low. Some may have heard of the term but most will be unable to name many of them.
Despite this, many people unknowingly include superfoods in their weekly shop. Nature's 18 will help to educate the consumer; if a foodstuff is offered under the Nature's 18 label, then it's a superfood.
The range will offer superfoods separately and also in Balance Boxes including a selection of different superfoods, each of which contains nutrients benefiting a different part of the body (blood, heart, eyes, nervous system etc). Symbols appear on pack to alert the consumer.
The range is aimed at consumers with a healthy lifestyle who are looking for convenient ways to optimise their intake of nature's beneficial plant nutrients. It's all about the body being a temple that deserves only the best.
The 18 superfoods include some items that are not suitable for freezing (avocados) or best kept in dry, non-frozen conditions (seeds and nuts), presenting a perfect opportunity for the brand to spread from the freezer cabinet to other parts of the supermarket.
Isobar enables the consumer to bring the sophistication of the trendiest bars into their own home.
The range comprises innovative and original products for serving drinks and entertaining at home.
It includes frozen lemon and lime slices, frozen cranberries, frozen cubes of Sauvignon blanc (so your wine doesn't get watered down), cubes of cassis and even ice cubes containing edible flowers for an elegant sophisticated touch.
The range has a modern, contemporary feel that is perfectly in tune with elegant urban living and is aimed at the 25-40 age group. And it is as cool as the coolest bars.
For children, particularly the four-10 age group, there's the Ice Guys range.
The Ice Guys themselves are three polar characters - a polar bear, a penguin and a seal - which will front the campaign.
The range includes flavoured ice cubes that are shaped like the characters, and also a new product - the Strolly - a rigid straw that has a shaped lolly on the end.
Children love lollies and playing with the ice in their drinks; with the Strolly, they get both.
If they finish their drink quickly, they've got a lolly; if the strolly melts, it helps flavour their drink.
Different flavours make the Strollies compatible with the most popular children's drinks, such as orange, lemonade and cola.
The Isobar/Ice Guys range is fun and engaging, and the packaging concept is designed to be able to include games and competitions.
