Gorton’s Seafood Makes Packaging More Consumer Friendly

  (UNITED STATES, 7/16/2012)

Just as consumers need to freshen up their look every now and then, so do brands – even the iconic Gorton’s Seafood.

Their new packaging has the bright yellow color and the trusted Gorton’s Fisherman at the helm, as always. But the packaging has been updated to make it easier for consumers to find the products they want and the information they need.

As Gorton’s product line has changed over the years, along with the tastes and demands of their consumers, their product line has grown well beyond their classic Fish Sticks.

 
From comfort food favorites to succulent premium selections to tasty choices that will help make sticking to your diet easy, Gorton's offers a wide variety of delicious seafood options

Gorton’s Seafood now has such diverse products – ranging from breaded, battered, and grilled preparations in a variety of flavors, to salmon, tilapia and shrimp varieties – that the brand found it necessary to help consumers navigate their diverse selection, and more easily find the products that suit them.

Gorton’s also heard from consumers that they wanted key nutritional information on the front panel of food packaging, where they could quickly and easily find the information they are seeking. The leading frozen seafood brand made a point to incorporate this change into the new designs.

“As consumers ourselves, we understand the desire for variety and options when shopping, but there is also a desire to find what we need quickly and easily,” said Zach Soolman, Director of Consumer Marketing.

“We want to make the shopping experience simple and informative for our consumers. We’ve made distinct looks for each of our different product segments to help consumers locate their preferred items. We also know that nutrition information and certain product attributes are important to consumers when making shopping decisions. Now our packaging contains key information right on the front of the package, like the assurance that there is no MSG in any of our products, or that our products contain 100 percent real fish and no fillers. We have also made the calorie count and the gluten free labeling on our Grilled Fish items more prominent, so that consumers can find the information they need quickly and easily.”

Gorton's offers a wide variety of delicious flame-grilled seafood options, a natural source of omega-3s, and 80 to 130 calories per serving

The back panel of all of Gorton’s packaging has also been updated. In addition to cooking directions that are clearly displayed and easier to read than their previous design, each package features the USDA’s recommendation to eat seafood twice a week, tempting food photography of a meal idea to whet your appetite.

The new packaging retains the trademark yellow and blue logo of Gorton’s previous packaging, which makes the products easily identifiable by consumers. Another thing that has not changed on the packaging is the presence of the Gorton’s Fisherman, who is represented across the entire line, and continues to highlight the company promise, “Trust the Gorton’s Fisherman.”
