The new packaging features vibrant colors inspired by nature, a large, unique font style and prominent new graphics to convey the brand’s roots and dedication to simple, wholesome ingredients that taste and sound good. Consumer insights drove the new design for Wasa’s crispbread portfolio, which found the packaging to be fun, eye-catching and differentiating.
