Delhaize Redesigns Healthy Accents


Old on Left/New On Right

As part of its ever evolving Private Brand portfolio Delhaize and it US banners: Food Lion, Bloom, Bottom Dollar, Harveys, Reid’s, Sweetbay and Hannaford have begun to introduce a redesign of their HBC Private brand Healthy Accents. The new design continues the white theme that they began with their recently launched basic brand My Essentials. I was never a fan of the old design, which felt a bit dated and clunky even when it was originally created, so it is nice to see a refreshed brand begin to appear.


With this second white-based Private Brand the challenge for Delhaize will be avoiding the stark generic whiteness that took over the aisle of Walmart after the Great Value redesign.
