Giant and Martin’s Food Markets, also known as Giant-Carlisle, said it would introduce a new packaging design created by the brand and design firm Sterling Brands included more than 2,000 products that are planned to hit the shelves by the end of the year. The new design takes an iconic approach and eliminates the Stop & Shop and Giant-Landover names in favor of the multicolored turning leaf logo that was created for the other banners. Though at this time the two banners have no intention of changing their own names or logos.
“We are changing our packaging to this great new look for all of our Giant and Martin’s own brand products to signal that we have improved the quality of our products,” Giant VP sales and merchandising Jeff Beaulieu said. “More than 250,000 customers have tested the quality of our own brand of products, and hundreds of items have been reformulated to improve upon taste and quality as a result of this consumer feedback.”
