New Flavor AppleMango is Introduced, Along with New Packaging Look
GoGo squeeZ first launched in the U.S. in 2008 at Whole Foods with natural brown packaging that reflected the brand’s 100 percent natural heritage. But as GoGo squeeZ expanded over the last four years to new retailers and thousands of households, the brand learned that the brown packaging did not represent its playful, fun spirit to new consumers. As a result, GoGo squeeZ embarked on a packaging redesign.
“As GoGo squeeZ continues to grow, we felt it was important that consumers be able to immediately recognize our squeezable applesauce on shelves as a fun, yet healthy snack,” says North American Managing Director, Meena Mansharamani. “However, we knew that if we were going to make changes, we needed GoGo squeeZ fans to help guide us.”
The redesign project kicked-off with a consumer deep-dive where the brand spent time with hand-picked brand enthusiasts – moms – to weigh in on the redesign process. Through qualitative and quantitative research, loyalist moms helped determine the right colors, look, tone and feel of the new packaging and fruit characters, which balances the fun of playtime with healthy snacking.
“We hope that everyone will enjoy our new colorful and playful look as much as we do!” adds Mansharamani. “And please stay tuned for other exciting GoGo squeeZ product announcements coming this year.”
GoGo squeeZ is available at major retailers nationwide, including Walmart, Target, Costco, Kroger, Publix, Harris Teeter and Whole Foods for a suggested retail price of $2.99 per four-pack.
GoGo squeeZ was originally founded in France where it is known as Pom’Potes. Since the brand’s U.S. expansion in 1998, Materne has sold more than 1.9 billion pouches to families around the world. Materne North America is headquartered out of New York City.
Additionally, GoGo squeeZ has a partnership with upcycling and recycling pioneer TerraCycle®, Inc. – a global company that collects post-consumer waste and turns it into community playgrounds, affordable eco-friendly products, and much more – which creates a way for families to recycle used GoGo squeeZ pouches.
