Birthday redesign for McCoy's crisps

06 April, 2007

McCoy's crisps' packaging has been re designed to mark five years of growth for the brand.

The new look will be supported by a ú4 million TV ad campaign which emphasises the product's position as a "real bloke's snack brand ".

McCoy's core range is bought by 6.6ámillion households in the UK and sales are currently growing at 10 per cent, compared with 2.9 per cent growth in the total bagged snacks market (Nielsen).

United Biscuits UK's customer marketing director, Mark Sugden, said: "The packaging update and reduction in saturated fats will help drive further incremental growth in the category and profits for retailers."

New packs will also display the 30 per cent less saturated fat claim as part of UBUK's drive to improve nutrition.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
