Keep warm this winter with Harraways oats.

For over 150 years, generations of Kiwi’s have enjoyed their favourite Harraways oats for breakfast with its distinctive yellow packaging. Now its packaging has a charming, nostalgic feel, with a new logo that features the oat mill in Dunedin.

“One of the most important touch points for a brand is its packaging. It is the key ‘conversion point’ that consumers truly ‘buy into’ a brand as such Harraways needs its packaging and overall shelf presence to work as hard as possible to project the brand’s unique benefits to the shopper. Previous to the rebrand, the packs were not telling the Harraways story in the best way they could and this aspect needed to work much harder in terms of grabbing the shopper’s attention. It certainly needed addressing,” said Peter Cox, head of Harraways marketing and product development.

Sustainability was also a massive part of the Harraways rebrand. The Quick Serve Sachets now come in a more resourceful box with 20 percent less cardboard. Made from sustainable wood pulp, the box is also 100 percent recyclable. The new 45g Quick Serve Sachets contain 20 percent more oats per serve, and the sachets are made using home compostable material.

Kōkako launched their Drinking Chocolate blend in 2009. With a classic mix of premium grade Fairtrade organic cocoa sourced from Conacado Cooperative in the Dominican Republic and Fairtrade organic sugar from the Manduvira Cooperative in Paraguay, it has been a popular pantry choice for ethically minded kiwi families ever since. The high organic cocoa to organic golden cane sugar ratio (40% and 60% respectively), and the absence of fillers, emulsifiers or preservatives makes it one of the richest premium drinking chocolate blends on the market.

The blend is sold in high barrier compostable packaging that is made from three different compostable films, laminated together to lock in the freshness, taste and flavour. These films compost when disposed of in a home or industrial composting environment containing heat, water, oxygen, soil and micro-organisms.
