Shoppers will soon have new packaging to look forward to when perusing the bakery aisle of their favorite grocery store. It was recently announced that Gonnella Baking Company is rolling out a new look for its line of retail sliced breads.

Dave Gonnella, Vice President of Sales, Gonnella Baking Co.“As the first redesign in nearly a decade, we knew it was time to evolve the look,” said Dave Gonnella, Vice President of Sales. “We liked many of the designs, but ultimately, we needed to find out what resonated best with shoppers.”

Ready to make a bold change, Gonnella increased appetite appeal with fresh, new photography to inspire culinary creations while reminding customers of Gonnella’s trusted brand quality and heritage. A total of four new designs were tested against existing packaging with feedback from over 1,100 shoppers in a recent Nielsen Bases Study, revealing what consumers value most about the Gonnella brand and a clear preference for the new look.

According to a press release, the selected design received an 81 percent score for high shopper appeal with attractive packaging, and 76 percent of shoppers agreed it would capture their attention in-store. Gonnella’s brand purchase intent increased to 79 percent across c-store shoppers, with 76 percent of Gen Z and Millennial shoppers signaling they are likely to purchase. Shoppers rated “quality/taste perception” as the dominant factor in bread purchasing decisions, followed by price and freshness.

The new design brings gratification that we are honoring our tradition while introducing our trusted, signature quality to new groups of consumers,” said Dave Gonnella.
